They did go to the ball

OK - this is a boring Granny post but I couldn't resist showing you this picture of number one grandson, Matt and his gorgeous girlfriend Ally before their school prom. I have to say that it makes me feel seriously old when my grandson looks down at me from his 6' 2" height - I just can't believe where that (nearly) 17 years has gone! Hey, ho!

I also find it amazing what a major occasion the school prom has become now - it makes me slip into 'Grumpy Old Woman' mode and say 'It wasn't like that in my day!!' Anyhoo, I think they had a marvellous time.

I promise to try and post a card next time!

  1. What a lovely looking couple and isn't Matt like his Mum. Love Ally's frock, fab, x

  2. Lovely to see them so beautifully turned out and good luck to them for the future. They are all usually so casual these days. I'm sure they enjoyed the occasion and I think it is good at their age when it is a stepping stone to adult life, but I don't like the teenies doing it.
