My father-in-law, this cheeky fella, asked me recently what wordless wednesday was all about? ‘It’s just a photo – I’m disappointed when you don’t say anything’.
I explained it’s an opportunity to post a random photo, with no title or explanation; a break from writing the words that generally define blogging. ‘Oh’ he said.
So this post, full of pictures with words, is dedicated to Papa G – a man with more than his fair share of stories to tell.
I’ve been sorting through all the pictures on my laptop recently. It’s been too many years since I last updated the board in our kitchen. Some important people or their little ones were missing (some still are so prepare to be snapped when I see you next!). Now we’re joined in the kitchen by these beautiful faces and memories. It’s so lovely (I know it’s a bit wonky but isn’t that part of the charm?)
I ordered my prints from Photobox and also had great fun creating customised note books for friends birthdays. I even treated myself to a gardening notebook. I feel like a child though and don’t want to ‘spoil’ it by using it. And yet I must – it has graph paper inside for drawing up my master plans!
You could say the kitchen has had quite a revamp (but without the much needed repaint). A canvas of my Durham cornflowers now graces one wall
and G’s Granddad and his mates are framed on the other.
