Heather
We had a lovely surprise this morning.
The postman deliverd a cylinder tube and I wonderd what it was and checked the postmark which said; Poste Vaticane, Elemosineria Apostolic.

It is a lovely parchment document 14 x 18 inches and is a Papal Blessing for our 50th Wedding Anniversary which our Parish Priest arraged for us.
It has both our names on it and the date of our wedding. It's very colourful with fancy print and also has a picture of Pope Benidict.
Maurice and I are thrilled to bits with it.

I was going into town to get a frame for it, but the rain was coming down in torrents, so will go another day.
penny dainty
Gee that was nice heather, mind you 50 years is no small feat these days.
We came home from the caravan sad.gif
Anne1
Having a nice peaceful day maybe a wee bit of knitting biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
stuarty
heather that must be so nice a blessing from the pope a bet no many people get that done a have never heard of it am pleased for you and maurice welldone wub.gif
Heather
Thank you Stuarty.

Usually the Papal Blessing is applied for when you get married. We spoke to the Priest about one when we were arranging our wedding and he was supposed to arrange it for us, but I think he forgot about it.

I think it's better known in Ireland.
stratson
Have had a busy day with family popping in and out.

Feels good all the dishes done and put away. smile.gif

Heather, am thrilled for you getting your special "Papal Blessing" for your Golden Wedding.
Have never known anyone getting one before.
Must ask my cousin in Ireland if she and Hubby got one on her 50th.
You look so young , (I know you were a young bride,)
you could easily pass for a woman in her mid fifties.
May you and Maurice celebrate your diamond! biggrin.gif
Anne1
Click to view attachmentHeather looking forward to seeing your blessing here is the one I was telling you about My Granny & Papas DiamondWedding 1950 it might not show up very well here cant get the right size up here
stuarty
hopfully Stratson and I are hitting rutherglen the morra fingers cross wub.gif
Isobel
Congratulations again Heather, Don't hear of many getting that now. I know a few friends who had the Papal Blessing when they were married.

Jim and I have just come in from a 70th birthday lunch. It was beautiful we went to one of the many winery's in this area. What a beautiful spread. It started at 2:30 and it was 6 by the time we left. Nice day meeting some old friends. Happy I dont have to cook tonight Jim and I are both feeling pretty stuffed.
Heather
Anne you should keep that Blessing in a frame. If it was my g'parents I would frame it and hang it up.

Thank you Isobel.

Stratson thank you for your kind remarks,yes I was in my teens when I got married.

Here's a cheeky story about it.

A couple of years ago a group of us were talking about how long we had been married and I said 47yrs. A woman said to me. " you must have been a teenager then" and I said " yes I was ". She said " oh were you pregnant ".
I told her, " no I was not,and if I had been I would not have been standing here today, my mum would have killed me ".

What a rude person she was.

I hope if the weather stays dry today I can get more bulbs planted in the garden.

Other that gardening, I'm knitting a Aran sweater for my nephew in America.
The wool and pattern just came last Thursday and my sister expects me to have it knitted for the end of November, as our nephew Brendan and his girl friend are going over to visit her 1st December. rolleyes.gif

Stuarty and I had a blast. Got lots of great bargains on our shopping expedition to Rutherglen. My, the cold wind when we came out the shop, it hit us both, fortunately there was a seat so stuarty was able to sit and gather herself together. Got back to the car and headed for Tescos for some bits and bobs, mainly to find a ladies room for moi! Is a very large store, we did well with our purchases. We then headed to Kings Park where stuarty is staying with her brother William, to have our tea. Thank you stuarty, it was delicious!!!
His home is magnificent, lovely Bungalow, I was impressed. Been a while since I've seen such good taste in decor and furnishings. Most importantly was made very welcome, Exactly my taste, were I to win the Lottery>>>Ah well, dream on stratson. laugh.gif I don't see stuarty returning to Surrey any time soon, she is loving it here.
Have not enjoyed myself and laughed so much in ages.
Thank you pet for a lovely afternoon. smile.gif
