I've been thinking about my mum a lot recently, it's almost a year since she passed away.
This morning, whilst returning from Aberdeen, they were talking to people about their memories of VE Day and playing tunes from the time. Mum would have been just short of her 16th birthday and out at work - she left school at 14! I've no idea how she celebrated one of the many things we never got round to talking about.
I wanted to put a journal page together, originally thinking it might be retro enough for TIOT but that is 60's so cancel that plan :-( and the lady in the picture is more 50's than 40's but she does remind me of mum so I'm sticking with her!!!
A piece of scrap paper that seemed grungy enough but still enough brightness to feel like light coming out of the dark days of war, a newspaper pape taken from today's local paper, assorted bunting in patriotic colours.
