Weekly Photo Challenge: Near And Far

10 Sep

I was out all day today, at an administration networking event (I know how to live an exciting life) run by the Church of England (a really exciting life).  It wasn’t far from here; quite near, really.  This is the first chance I’ve had to blog. I’ve missed you.


I have had a busy three days: admin event today; church>writing group>visiting rellies in Macclesfield yesterday; packing the new shed and building a free, secondhand wardrobe on Saturday.

I’ve really missed you.

Spud had a proper sort out of his clothes and came across stuff he hasn’t worn for at least three years.

He’s a good son; I love him.  When I was pregnant, I hoped for an intelligent, witty, handsome, suave son.

So near; and yet so far.

In his psychology class today, he had to describe his mother in one word.  He opted for caring.

I wonder if he’s read this post yet?

    He would probably still choose caring after reading your post. He might have “Has a different view of my life” as a close second though. Which is ok, we all want what we think is best for our children, luckily most of us raise them to make the right choice for themselves.

    How can any girl resist him? Spud has so much chutzpa and charm, not to mention he is adorable. You have been busy, busy. Have a nice cup of tea and think back to all the times Spud has made you laugh. It’ll be nice.

    Spud is a real chip of the old (paternal) block.

    Oh, I needed a chuckle today, Tilly, and this was it. Your son has your wide grin. Just fantastic take on the theme.

    Caring is a good word. There are a lot of other words he could have used that are not nearly as complimentary, particularly if he had read the post. You are a lucky woman.

    Good one for the theme! My boys sometimes look like that in their clothes and I still send them to school…

    Has that young man found your Malteser stash? I might be the reason he has grown so much, then on the other hand it might be all the caring his mother gives him!

    You are caring Tilly… You featured your son instead of another distant mountain like many of us. 😆

    Very funny! I love the way you use both photos and words.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
