The Gallery - A Photo I'm Proud Of

This week the theme at Sticky Fingers Gallery is "A Photo I'm Proud of"

I've been thinking what to show you for days and this is what I've picked...

It's not fantastic quality or particularly brilliant in any sort of way actually. But it does make me proud. It was taken about 10 minutes after I found out I was going to be a Mummy and hubby was going to be a Daddy. It was a Tuesday.

This was the point of no return, nothing would be the same again and I'm so pleased that I thought to take a quick snap because it helps remind me of the whirlwind of emotions me and hubby were feeling. And I will show this to the Biddidi Bobbidi Baby when she is older and tell her that this was the first time we knew she was there and that we loved her straightaway.

The Gallery - A Memory

This week the theme for Sticky Fingers Gallery is A Memory.

Having just sorted out my photo albums in order to avoid doing the housework this one was easy for me.

This pic always makes me smile. It is from my first holiday as a little girl when I am actually able to remember parts of it. Seemingly invisible dogs are the exception to the "No Dogs on the Beach" rule, as demonstrated by my mummy...

And I just love this pic of me and my Mum, its a "makes me feel happy" picture.

Does the knight in shining armour still exist?

Before I start this post(rant)let me make it clear (for fear of divorce) that I have a lovely husband who is very helpful (when he wants something).

Disclaimer aside I have found myself wondering if the knight in shining armour does still exist? It really hit me when I was walking the dog yesterday with Baby T. The three wheeler buggy is fab but even that can't climb itself up stairs.

The route in particular involved two sets of, say, six steps. A pain in the bum, mildly, but we then end up on a lovely country walk. My lovely country walk was however spoilt not by the lack of anyone to help me (I do the walk most days and have always managed admirably and without a second thought) but by the fact that there were two "gentlemen" mere feet away on both occasions and no one offered to help. Whats that all about? I have to admit that it put me in a mild grump for at least 30 minutes.

Even when I was pregnant I would help someone with a buggy and yet a number of men in my locality with t-shirts so tight the intention can only be to show of their muscles are not actually inclined to utilise those muscles. Weird.

I was sure that it was still the done thing to teach our children manners, or has the rule book changed and no one thought to tell me?

Please tell me that there are still some kind people out there and restore my faith in humanity....

The Gallery - Playtime

The theme this week at Sticky Fingers Gallery is Playtime.

It sounded easy but then I found I had so many shots to pick from.....

I think this is my favourite though. Baby T's first play in a ball pool. She loved it and I managed not to lose her so everyone was a winner!
