Our prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 14th is brought to us by Janet!
Janet’s word for our prompt today is “reflection.”
One of my favourite records from 1969 was Marmalade’s Reflections of my Life.
I did on a post on that some time ago.
These days, every time I see my reflection, I see my Mum. A lot of people said I was very like her, and a great aunt and uncle thought I was her when my grandfather took me to visit way back in 1970.
This is Mum and Bro in the ’50s.
This is Mum and me in the ’80s.
This is me, May 2018.
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!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
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.

There is a marked resemblance between you and your mom!
What a beautiful glow on your face. lovely.
I could have been having one of my meds induced hot flushes in that one, but my cheeks are rather rosy!
It’s obvious from the photograph. Beautiful skin you have got, dear.
Thank you. I must admit I have always been lucky there, Mum too. She had lovely skin, even towards the end of her life. I put it down to no makeup, soap or creams!
It’s lucky to inherit good things from a lovely mother.
She was one of the best.
