Memories are so important but unfortunately, as I've witnessed, can become elusive. I think one of my reasons for blogging is to create a written memory of life. Something that can be revisited without the struggle of delving into my head for a temporarily (hopefully) forgotten moment. It's also why I'm determined to sort out my photos and get prints of some of my digital ones. A work in progress.
I was fortunate to gain lots of my Mum's photos when she died but also lots of my Grandmother's photos and I love looking back at them. Last weekend Hubby's family gathered together and his sister passed on lots of photos from his Mum. We had a good laugh looking back at those, especially some of the hairstyles. The kids especially loved looking back and having a laugh at our expense over our antics and dress sense.
Of course there were quite a few baby photos of the youngsters too so we also got to tease them about how skinny/chubby/bald/hairy etc they were. Happy memories.
