Times to Celebrate

Hello and good morning!

It's time for a new prompt at 


And the prompt is  Celebration ... Chosen for us by Milagros

I'm going a little random here even though my DH celebrated a Big birthday this past week ... My Celebration photos are from my archives and have nothing to do with birthdays

First up - My Gold and Silver medals!


 ... Not from the Olympics obviously (hee hee) and they're not even real gold or even real silver 
I was awarded them for the 3 years I did the "Race For Life" raising money in aid of cancer research and one is for raising money for Breast Cancer 


Here I am number 871 standing next to my SIL and some of her friends ... We raised a fair bit of money between us over the years  which was worth celebrating

And something completely different ... (well, I said it was random) 


What's this you say ... Well many years of my life were spent working in insurance ... I started in a large company when I left school, working in various departments until I landed the job of head receptionist in their brand new Head Office building in the city...
It was officially opened in 1976 by Princess Alexandra and that's me having just presented her with those flowers and having a little chat ... 
It was a very special celebration and I made my dress especially for the occasion 

I was lucky to meet quite a few interesting people during those years including one of our past Prime Ministers
Sir Harold Wilson


They were times to celebrate for the young lady I was then

We'd love to see your celebration photos this week ... I hope you link up with us at 


Don't forget to stop over at the Blog and see what my friends across the globe are sharing

Have a lovely Sunday

Till soon

~ Ros ~
