Just got back from my Mommas.
We went to go and enjoy the Johan Strauss Gala in Hull on Saturday night and it was just the best thing Ive done in a long time. Not only were we in one of the best accoustics halls in the country but the music was awesome. Total and utter value for money, flipping well handsome composer, dancers in crinolin ball gowns, operatics and lots of clapping to the Rudetzky march.
Im too tired to go into too much detail but this weekend was fab for more genealogy (Mum has given me a list of female relations going back to 1755! I have facts about my great, great, great, great, great, great grandmother.) Im so lucky to have an active geanologist and my mum has a ton and I mean a ton of information about our family. Ive seen many birth, deaths and marriage certificates. Details of illigitimacy, prostitution, disabilities, drink problems, illiteracy - oh yes, we have it all. Am I ashamed? Am I nuts, no! These figures shaped our lives and formed our history - you know the stuff that books are made of? I have a family history that I can share with my future generations with photos and certificates. This is so GOOD!
