A few days ago I spent the weekend away from BS5, celebrating my mum and dad's 50th wedding anniversary. The wider family spent valuable time together - my two brothers and my dad's brother and sister and their children (our first cousins). We were 17 in all and spent a fine evening at Glewstone Court, a rather nice venue in Herefordshire. Some pictures are here. Our oldest brother made a fine toast. Plenty of food, wine, chatter, love and laughter.
