Sunday Poser # 28

Sadje is our host for the Sunday Poser, and my answer to her question is YES!!
I still wear the crucifix given to me by Bro and his first wife when they married in 1965. It is joined by a gold heart, small gold elephant and a silver Chinese symbol all of which Hubby has given me over the years and I never take it off unless I have to go into hospital.

Meet Grandad.He is my childhood bear and a week or so younger than I am, so 65. My first bear was stolen off my pram, and this was his replacement. He was my favourite toy, and I was terrified of getting him wet as he is stuffed with straw. The new feet and paws are courtesy of Hubby’s needlework  You can read about it here.

More recently I’m glad I kept this, a gift from my Mum.
It reads:

Special Daughter

A daughter is a blessing
A treasure for all time
Your laughter, warmth and loving
Make me proud that you are mine.
With every year that passes
You’re more special than before
Through every stage and every age
I love you even more.


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.

    Having those special touchstones is important. They carry our thoughts back to people, places and times….

  3. Oh my. ❤ Certain pieces of our past are so precious. I've heard of Grandad before, and your father's cardigan, but I hadn't heard of the pillow. How beautiful and how special I'm sure!
