A moment in time

By Skyegirl

This being Fathers' Day, my thoughts were of my dad today, and I decided to post a photograph which I have snapped from one I have in the living room. 

I was so lucky to have such a dad, he was mum and dad to us when we lost our mum at an early age.  

My sister and I were talking today on the telephone about his sweet peas, he grew wonderful ones; he always dug lots of manure into the ground, and happy memories of going with him and his wheelbarrow round to the field to get the fresh manure from the cows.  

My picture was taken on holiday in Devon.  I was just thinking how formal we look compared with dress on holiday nowadays.  I think I was about fourteen when I first wore trousers.  Now I live in them!
