Happy 80th Doris

My Mother-In-Law turned 80 this week.  Happy Birthday Doris!   Doris is a lovely quiet lady who doesn't venture out much so there was not a big party or big hullabaloo.   Hubby and son went to visit for the day and took our beautiful Peppy with them.  They had a lovely time together.  As with most 80 year olds, time spent together is more important than expensive gifts or lavish parties.

I appreciate Doris's support over the last 20 odd years.  As wives of Dyson men, we have a lot to share and her advice has been constant and invaluable.   They breed strange men in Yorkshire.
Monty Python - Four Yorkshiremen   - this is not far from the truth, hey Doris. 

I think the funniest thing is to hear my Hubby start talking like this after he's been speaking to his mum.  One minute he's an Aussie and then next he sounds like a Yorkshireman.

Anyway this is just a little Hi to Doris.  She reads my blog so I'm hoping she gets a kick out of seeing her picture online. 

Doris & Peppy
Happy Birthday.

  1. Happy 80th Birthday Doris!!!!!!!! 80 years young :-)

  2. My nan was from Preston, not all that far from Yorkshire as the crow flies (well...closer than Australia! ;) ) and she had a dog called Peppy as well :). Happy Birthday Doris and heres to many more. We have a lady from Preston called Gladys who lives on 5 acres next door to us. She just turned 90 last year and she mows her own acreage, walks every single day around the property and the neighbourhood and puts us all to shame. I hope Doris had a fantastic birthday :)

  3. Happy birthday Doris. I hope you had a wonderful day. :)
