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.
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.
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.

These are precious mementoes indeed. I love the cushion and it’s beautiful message. Thanks Di.
You’re welcome 😉
Having those special touchstones is important. They carry our thoughts back to people, places and times….
I still have my Dad’s cardy. It’s almost threadbare, but I won’t part with it because I have so few things of his.
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!
I remember Mum giving it to me, but not exactly when. It’s about four inches square and originally smelt of lavender.
awe wow! You’ve got a bear for 65 years? Cool! ❤
he was my most treasured toy and still with me, though he’s pretty bald now and Hubby repaired his paws for me as the leather was well rotted.
