50 YEARS OLD TODAY

 I can't believe my eldest daughter turns 50 today. We can't celebrate together because she is on holidays in Tasmania but we did FaceTime this morning. I know I'm biased but I think she is an amazing person and I love her to bits. Here is a quick jaunt through her life:



First day at school.

Last year at school

First degree at uni, no pics of second degree.
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Built Environment.

Got married

Worked and travelled around the world.

Came home and worked hard.

Now she has been travelling Australia for the last 18 months. She loves hiking, running, cycling and painting.







Happy Birthday Carol-Ann.

  9. What a lovely post for your lovely daughter! Yes, there was something about our grown-up children turning 50 (since we didn't feel any older than that at the time !) (I will not tell you about when they turn 60.)

  17. Happy birthday to Carol Ann. Amazing how fast time passes. We have no children to mark time like this but I am amazed to now have several nieces and nephews in their 50s.
