Let's begin with Omi. Omi is my T-Maria's gran. She is 80 today and later on we will be celebrating lavishly!
It's weird to think that when my mother was sheltering under the stairs in Liverpool in the 1940s during the air-raids by the Luftwaffe, Omi was living in fear of the allied bombers in Munich.
What a peculiar world it is.
Happy Birthday Omi!
And the other birthday would have been my dad who would have been a year away from getting his telegram from the Queen.
This photo is from just about the time when Omi was being born. Actually he doesn't look old enough there to be anyone's dad!
Happy Birthday dad!
