Argghh I am so so excited, I have been meaning to join the Me and Mine linky for months, and yesterday I finally got that elusive family photo. And now I have got my first I am on a roll. I want to create a calendar of Christie family moments. Memories for our boys to look back on and think hey we had so much fun.
I had a fab childhood, so many happy memories but there are limited photos and no written memoirs. Of course there wasn’t, I was a 70s child, there was no internet!
A couple of weeks ago my gorgeous Nan went into a home, a sad time but a much-needed lifeline for a very special lady, who I love very much.
And in the wake of that, my family are filtering through all of her beautiful photos and memories, occasionally one pops up on Facebook. They make me smile and remember my childhood with such fondness.
It is such an old fuzzy photo, but one that makes me so happy, it was taken in my beloved Nan and Granddad’s back garden on a hot and sunny day. Its weird I was so young but I remember it well. I am the one with the womble ha ha. I am amongst my lovely brother Stephen, cousins Pauline, Theresa, Gary, and Jeanette and my lovely Aunt and Uncle Joyce and Ted, such a lovely memory, and looking back makes me determined to create these beautiful memories for our family.
So today on our family walk, we set my phone up on timer on a dry stone wall. I am not going to lie, it took a while, the Christie boys struggle with serious! We laughed lots, took a few shots, but I love that, it is a moment I will never ever forget.
