Just over a month ago Diann's daughter, Angela, got in touch with me to find out if John and I were free the second weekend in December to fly to Queensland to attend a surprise party celebrating Diann and Bill's 40th wedding anniversary. Of course we could go.
We flew up on Friday night to stay with my brother and SIL (Paul and Lynette) in Brisbane, spent Saturday Christmas shopping and then went to the party, which was held at Diann and Bill's son's home.

The party was wonderful. The happy couple had no idea the party had been organised - there were a few tense moments during the week when Miss Diann became suspicious but luckily the contingency plans worked.

The bridesmaids and best man were able to attend as well as family and close friends - it was such a lovely party full of wonderful memories for Diann and Bill.
