Photo Challenge 212

This week Nekneeraj throws out this challenge:

For today’s photo prompt, let’s do something different. Let us share our own portrait, writing something about ourselves. How about that?


This is one of the first pictures Hubby took of me here.
For once I was not working on my laptop, but writing a letter, probably to Mum.
I wouldn’t say it’s a particularly good photo of me as he caught me unawares but it reflects me at my most relaxed (look at those rosy cheeks) and content with my lot.

Looking at it, I see my Mum, just as I do every morning when I look in the mirror.
However, unlike my Mum, I don’t have her patience, skill with a needle and thread, and my pastry isn’t a patch on hers!
We shared a love of music though, but she needed the printed sheets whereas I can improvise, a natural gift passed on to me by my Dad. Mum loved to sing, or hum along if she couldn’t remember the words. I do too, but not often as we don’t listen to the radio that much, though if I have some of my favourite CDs on, I’ll sing along with them.

Mum used to read a lot, as did I in years past, and she loved to do Crossword Puzzles or Word Search grids so we’d often buy her one of the publications that always came with a pencil or pen just in case she didn’t have one to hand.  I like word games such as Upwords or Scrabble, solve anagrams, enjoy a game of cribbage, and do the Suduko, the latter of which she could never get the hang of.

I’m nothing special, but like to think I have a warm heart. Mum shared hers with so many.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. It’s nice to put a face to your name 😊

    • Thanks Sarah. There are a few other pics of me in my blog (on the boat, wrapped up in my yellows, my diet success) but this is the most recent.
