Today The alarm went off in the bedroom at 6.30am. We were to attend the Anzac ceremony at Lancefield at 8.30 AM. My hubby proudly donned his army uniform and I have got to say I was so proud of him. He looked quite spiffy! After the Anzac ceremony there was a sit down breakfast then I had a stall at the Little Treasures Market that started at 9.30 am. I arrived there a little late because on our table I was chatting to a lady that was nearly 100 years old and her late hubby was in the Light Horse Brigade. . When my hubby turned up to see me at the market there was a very loud wolf whistle . Some of the ladies commented that he looked very spiffy and handsome etc. My heart burst with pride for this wonderful man that has been my hubby for 45 years! At the same time on a sadder note I remembered his darling mum Myrle passed away on Anzac Day 4 years ago . .

  • How lovely that you can still see your man as spiffy after all those years. It Instills such a pride to see them in uniform. It’s great that he keeps that tradition and I am sure his mum is there with you all in more ways than one.

  • I would just like to clarify that it was my loving mother in law Myrle that passed away on Anzac Day 4 years ago but she was like my 2nd mum! We shared a great love of her son, my wonderful hubby Noel and a great love of craft . We often exchanged knitting patterns and crochet etc and I loved her dearly! My darling mum passed away over 20 years ago and I miss her like it was yesterday. You see she was my mum and my best friend.
