Congratulations All Round

Today my in-laws celebrate 60 years of marriage. Well done them!

Ailz took it upon herself to alert the Queen. Owing to one thing and another- mainly ill-health- the letter only went in the post this Monday. We assumed we'd blown it and the latter of congratulations from the Palace would be late. Not a bit of it. My ma-in-law just rang to announce that the postman had arrived a little before eight.  "Sorry to get you up so early," he said, "but it's from the Queen!" Well done, her!
