Mothers’ Day, Shears and A Castle

11 May

It was Mothers’ Day in America yesterday and my kid sister, who lives in Hawaii, posted a photo of our beautiful Mum who died in 1993 but is, of course, still much missed.

I started making masks today and the instructions suggested that I use pinking shears. Mine got taken for craft work many years ago but Mum’s are still in her sewing box where I am always finding haberdashery treasures. They look a bit rusty but they cut perfectly.

Our walk took us under Carn Brea today and I took this photo for the LiveWires who love going up there and scrambling on the rocks. In fact, the castle never was a ‘castle’ but a folly and later a hunting lodge.See here for the history.

    Do you know when this photo was taken? I’m wondering what age she was. She is very beautiful, as are her two daughters, who look so much like her.

      Interesting isn’t it? Of course I didn’t ever know her like this! I’m not sure how old she is here. Have you seen the comment from my cousin, Wendy? She comments on the likeness between Geoff and Mum. xx

    And with a very marked resemblance to her brother, Geoff (my Dad) at about the same age! I have a photo of Dad in his wartime RAF uniform, and the family resemblance is striking.
