It is amazing how such a small house could support so many people, and there were still another six children to come!
This is going to be a Wordless Monday (of sorts). The post compliments a previous one – “When Father Papered the Parlour“. May 9th is Mum’s birthday, she would have been 93 today. As I said in the other post Mum loved to sing and entertain, so I expect she is now somewhere “Entertaining the Ancestors“. These photo’s are just a few of the ones I have of her entertaining.
Happy Birthday Mum. Hilda TIMMINS (formerley WILLIAMS) 1918 – 2008.
