Figured I'd give you a reprieve from me being sick!!!!
My mam gave me my Nana and Pop's clock quite some time ago. Its not worth a lot monetary wise, but sentimental value is priceless. They were given it on their wedding day by my Pop's brother Jimmy.
What's even more special my mam gave me their wedding photo.
Along with their Marriage Certificate. They were married on May 23rd, 1934. I hope you don't mind, but I am only going to show you a couple of pieces of the certificate. This shows how old they were and what their profession's were. For some reason it doesn't say what my Nana did.............probably because she worked on the family farm. She was a really hard worker my Nana, as was my Pop.
Here it shows the date they were married. My Pop's name was Thomas, and my Nana's name was Maggie Josephine, though she said it was really Margaret, not Maggie!!!
I should mention that clock is temperamental. It thrives in a happy household, does not like a woman winding it up, therefore dh winds it up once a week. I dust it and talk nicely to it. Infact if it stops unexpectedly, I am right on the phone to my mam to make sure everyone is alright. It chimes on the hour, and I think it chimes on the half hour, but we only have it chiming on the hour. My mam has one as well, as they got two given and the funny thing is, is when we are talking to one another on the phone and the clocks chime. We never hear it chime, but visitors do.
It belonged to two very special people that clock.
