1st of November, a double birthday in the family.

Olivia's mother Fidela would have turned 85 today.
Also my Grandmother Mollie would have turned 111 today, neither are with us any more.
My Nana is posing with her British Empire Medal here, they don't give them here any more but I have to think she merited this lowest of the Queen's medals which coincidentally is also the highest non-bravery award a common citizen could attain.
I also think today marks the 111th anniversary of Mollie's Mother's death, an event that drove a wedge into her relationship with her Father.
