A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Anniversary Card
Let me refresh your memory about my neighbour, Mrs W. She and I have become good friends in the last couple of years and I've made a few cards for her to give to people, including a 90th birthday card for Mrs M. Mrs. W's daughter is married to Mrs. M's son, but we'll come back to that later.
A couple of weeks ago in the hairdresser (they meet up there every Friday at 1:00), Mrs M was saying that she couldn't find a 60th wedding card for her friends in England. Mrs W very kindly offered that I would make her one - and then she sheepishly told me that evening, hoping that it would be ok. Of course, I was delighted to make the card and here it is. (60th is diamond, by the way)
Fast forward to yesterday, again at the hairdresser, where Mrs M reminded Mrs W that this week is the 40th (ruby) wedding anniversary of their married children. You guessed it! I now have two commissions to make two cards for the same couple - one from each of the mothers. So tomorrow afternoon, I'll be trying to figure out how to manage this whole thing - two different cards, both good, but the one for Mrs W will have to be just a smidge better, to keep this tricky relationship in balance! Wish me luck!
