Sparkling Sapphire Anniversary
Today is our Sapphire Wedding Anniversary - we're celebrating 45 years together. We'd have liked to have celebrated with family, but the loss of civil liberties through political scaremongering prevents that. In 1948, the WHO defined health as follows: ‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or other physical impairment’.

They are asking for Open Debate. Please do have a read.
We've had a lovely day, enhanced by receiving photos from our son and daughter who are spending the weekend together - which naturally includes delightful pictures of our grand-daughter and our grand-pug. Next best thing to being with them, is enjoying their time together vicariously.

In fact it's being a very sparkly day and we're going to open a bottle of sparkling wine shortly, too. Dinner is in the oven and smelling good ...
Thank you so much for all the lovely stars, hearts and comments on my yesterblip. I'm sure admirer would be pleased that many of us still enjoy being silly on Saturdays in Blipland. Thanks, again.
