Fifty years and counting

This week we celebrated fifty years of very happy marriage.

The early part of the week had stunningly beautiful sunsets.

Sky on fire

We managed a ride on Thursday I’m glorious sunshine but it was chilly. We rode up through Great Aston and then along through Easby to Ingleby Greenhow. We usually have a stop here for refreshments but it was too cold to sit. We continued along through Great Broughton and Stokesley

Onwards to climb the hill to Seamer and then a decent back through Thornton and Stainton so I could go and take a photo of a post box crochet topper I had noticed driving past.

Yarn bombing brings a smile

Friday , we had business to attend to so by the time we got back the fog had descended into the valley. It’s one of the reasons people from Teesside are known as Smoggies. It used to be awful when there was lots of polluting industry.

So Saturday, was thick fog so DH suggested we go over to the chapel to lay out fabric backing for a quilt I have been making all year. The top is finished but it needs laying up and quilting.

50 years ago the foyer was filled with family and friends to witness our wedding.

Saturday, saw DH helping me to do a sliding wedge to get a diagonal seam on too narrow fabric.

All in all a good week. Thank goodness we did our Golden Wedding tour in the summer.

June trip

This week 26 miles and YTD 4231 miles


  1. Congratulations. 50 years takes a lot of give and take.

  2. Congratulations to you both on 50 years of marriage… well done, Brenda and Jozef! We will be celebrating our Golden Wedding in 2023, if we both make it, haha!!
