Numbers at last!! I love numbers and in my family history there seem to be so many interesting ones, so let's see what I can do with NUMBER 4.
My husband Don was one of 6 boys, but at one stage there were only 4 of them. This photo always amuses me. They were obviously told to stand up straight, fold their arms and smile at the camera. The two in the middle are twins - more about them next week.
And here we have the four younger ones. The twins are the bigger ones this time. You'll have to wait until Number 6 to see the whole lot together.
I have published this one before, but I love it. The four oldest children in my mother's family of 9 children. My mother is on the right. This must have been taken around 1910. The cottage was built for my great grandparents on their marriage in the 1860s and stayed in the family until 2000 when my mother sold it to move into a nursing home. I lived there in the fifties as a teenager.

A not very good shot of Don and I with our two daughters - when we were still four in the family.
Finally, because this must be getting a bit boring, Four generations of my family - great grandmother (my lovely mother Laura), myself, my youngest daughter, Mandy and out first grandchild, the adorable Niamh. My mother was 96 in this shot.
