Weekly Photo Challenge: Love

28 Jan

Tory Boy is a menace to his little brother.  You saw his birthday card yesterday:


But he loves Spud very much.  He arranged his leave so that he would be here for his brother’s birthday.  He bought him an expensive PS3 game.  And he baked him a cake.  He baked it from scratch and iced it to look like one of Spud’s favourite games:


You don’t get much more loving than that.

And then he locked Spud in the loft.

    A lavishly affectionate, yet pragmatic approach to brotherhood, Tilly 😀 Happy Birthday to Spud!

    Whatever made him do that?? Was the loft lock-up part of a game or inspired by the PS3?

    The penmanship on the cake is quite remarkable. The devilish look Tory Boy has in the first picture plus the resigned expression on Spud’s face says it all. You have brought mini you and mini Hub into the world. 🙂

    Doesn’t it feel wonderful to know that they truly care for each other? Mine are married adults, now, but when they travel across the country to visit and spend time with each other, it just warms my heart.

    Tell Spud black icing is always a clue.

    Typical brothers! My two are still the same at the ages of 33 and 35! And woe betide anyone who hurts their sister who is the oldest at 37 – gotta love that!

    Brotherly love is hard to beat. Tilly, you and hub are so fortunate.

    Brotherly love. That gives me something to look forward to. Or not.
