Today’s photograph is one of two baby photos that I have. This is me, taken aged 9 months old. The photograph when Mum and I discussed recently I think gave rise to some memories for her.
Apparently I had been sat initially wearing blue shoes. I was given the ball and was unimpressed. Mum said to me that I displayed that look that I still use now, of when I am less than impressed.
The shoes were taken off and Mum said this look is classic, to her it says “…am I supposed to be impressed?…..”
I sat and obliged and when I had, had enough I cried. The whole event apparently took several hours as I was not overly helpful.
I have in my study an old suitcase that had been my Grandfathers. Inside in tissue paper is a really soft and smooth wool blanket given to me by my Great Grandmother who appeared on day 6. At the time I was born I was not her only Great Grandchild, and wonder if she purchased a similar blanket for my cousins. I must ask them. I have kept the blanket in the hope that I might one day use it for my own family. This has not been the case and I shall pass this on to my Cousin’s daughter who is currently only 11 and that way it will hopefully provide a link between the past and future.
