You know, I’d like to invite the lovely Tara Cain round here to help me choose my favourite photo. I mean does this lady have any idea of the amount of photos I have? She hasn’t a clue to my dreadful archive system which basically is non existant making this task a very difficult one indeed.
If she did take me up on the offer, I could probably bore her to tears for a few weeks showing her snap after snap after snap. I mean you know you’re in trouble when someone digs out their dusty photo albums after dinner ‘…and this one was in London’ ‘mmm nice,’ your reply and your heart fills with dread as you can see pages and pages yet to get through.
I wouldn’t put you through that and I haven’t been through all my old albums of ‘real’ photos as I haven’t set up my brand new printer yet so I just had a peek at my external hard drive (check me out) I’ve probably got about 6 photos, each one carrying a certain memory locked in time and therefore a special place in my heart.
Not technically ‘my’ photo.
After three miscarriages, one at 21 weeks, we finally heard those magic words ‘ You’re expecting twins’ and as any twin mum will tell you, the shock, the happiness and the disbelief set in all at once. I walked around for the next few weeks until the 12 week scan questioning myself ‘Two?’ out loud over and over. Happy days :)
This one is mine, it was looking out the back bedroom at our old house on the Croft. We backed onto a playing field and that tree in the centre is a Walnut tree and judging bythe span of it’s lower branches, ancient.
When Paul and I lost our little girl back in 2006 we were both completely devastated, we had tried so hard and time for me was running out as I had passed 40. It was a particularly sad and harrowing time for us and to try and break away from it all we booked a holiday to the States, Florida to be precise. Our favourite stop of all time has to be Key West at the tip of the Florida Quays. A magical place where you can’t help but have a smile on your face. I have 100’s of photos I took there but have chosen this one to share with you as it mentions the Key Lime Pie which you really MUST try if you go there. Don’t you just love those chairs?
This one is of me! But of course you know that. I am on a girl’s night out at Wembly waiting to see Take That which if I can get tickets I will be going to again given half a chance! Probably one of the nicest photos of me, again not ‘mine’ technically but one I actually quite like.
So Tara, from thousands of shots I have narrowed it down a bit for you, I now leave it up to you and the viewers to choose their favourite and as yesterday’s post was photos of the children I have purposely left them out, otherwise we’d be here for days :)
