My Great-Aunt Esma – 100 years old today.

The cards on the table are from the Queen, the Prime Minister and the Governor-General

I’ve been reflecting on the fact that she was born at the start of the first world war – and thinking of everything she must have seen in her life

  3. Good morning. Congrats to your great aunt. She looks young!!! She must be a wonderful piano player. I smile when I read the note on the piano. πŸ˜‰ Have a great day! Helen

    • My cousins (and her great-nieces and nephews on her husbands side) were all joking that she has looked the same ever since we can remember (we are all in our 30s and 40s). The shot (and hence the piano) are in the hall of the retirement village were she lives πŸ™‚

  4. Happy Birthday to your Great Aunt.

  5. 100 years, wow! She looks lovely, elegant, and very happy. Great entry for this week’s theme.
