Today Mom and I went to see and celebrate Noor Haslam's 80th Birthday ! It was again a freezing cold day ! with the windchill -28.. but we made our way up north to Marham, and in the end really glad we did. The Haslams are very close to our family, we all go way,way back; as Noor and my mom met year ago in the first place because they were both interested in Weaving. Now many years and laughs later we are still enjoying each others company.
As you can see we celebrated in true dutch form, as all Dutch birthdays are, in a circle !
