Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 8 – Charity Christmas Tree Topper Challenge — December 13, 2015

Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 8 – Charity Christmas Tree Topper Challenge

I was disappointed not to be able to take part in Hugh’s photo challenge last week as I didn’t encounter any funny signs.

However, he is back this week with a wonderful idea of a Christmas tree topper photo challenge that will raise money for charity. This I can take part in. It is such a wonderful thing to be part of as well.

My Christmas tree topper is a silver star. It came with my tree which you can read about here 

Come and join in the fun and help Hugh raise money for Dog’s Trust Charity.

The Daydreamer Challenge: Day 2 — April 7, 2015

The Daydreamer Challenge: Day 2

I am excited to be taking part in the lovely Caitlin’s Daydreamer Challenge and we are now on day two. Please check out Caitlin’s excellent blog The Teen Daydreamer if you haven’t already done so as it is filled with all sorts of delights from insightful posts to making cakes!

For today, Caitlin wants us to know all about us. we have the choice of writing all about a photograph that says something about us or is a good representation of who we are or we can use a word that describes us, plus make a new one up for good measure! As I think I have adequately described myself here I am going with the photo that is about who I am.

Actually, it is not easy trying to find a photo that represents me! I could choose one of me with family, as that is very important to me, or perhaps a beach (particularly Weymouth) as I do so love the seaside, maybe even my lovely (if not annoying) yellow car! No, the photo I have chosen is one of my graduation from University last year.

The reason I chose this as it represents a few things about me. Firstly, my constant quest for knowledge. I love to learn new things, and like to try to keep my mind as active as I can. This also represents my job which I do love. I studied for two years at university so am not a Registered nurse. At 45-year-old (at the time of applying), I didn’t know if I would cope academically with the three-year course, as it had been so long since I had been at school! Confidence has never been my strong point, However, I the passed the course with merit, so needn’t have worried, and met some wonderful people as well. It was a proud day for me but also a sad one as my dad had died at the beginning of my second year so never actually saw me complete the course.

So there you have it, me in a nutshell; I love laughing, learning , nursing, and nurturing. I am clumsy, mumsy, caring and sharing! Oh and an ‘eccentric’ in training!

Episode 245: Five Photos, Five Stories – Day 1: Dad — March 24, 2015

Episode 245: Five Photos, Five Stories – Day 1: Dad

I recently received the following invitation from Author SB Mazing

I’m about to invite you to join in a challenge I recently accepted. Five Photos, Five Stories. I thought this challenge could present you with the opportunity of viewing blogging from a different angle, to do something different, anything that suits you for that matter. It’s entirely up to you. …

I thought, I might try this one, despite the fact that I am not the world’s best photographer! There are some rules that go with it which are as follows:

The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo.  It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.

So here is my attempt..

This picture is one of my favourites of my dad as he was so relaxed and happy. He and my step-mother had travelled up for my wedding to Mr Grump in 2009.  That was the last time he would visit us here as he died three years later, in April 2012.

I decided to write a poem for him,

Dad you were a gentleman

Always kind and fair

But when you got into a strop

You’d madly clutch your hair!

Dad you were a scholar

So clever and so wise

You also had an appetite

For curries, roasts and pies!

Dad you were a swimmer

In for your daily dip

But when dancing the Macarena

I thought you’d break a hip!

Dad, you were my hero

And although no longer here

I have my treasured memories

Of which I hold so dear.

I would like to invite Donna from Homemade naturally to join in.

Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.

Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. And actually everyone can join in. So feel free to if you like the idea.
