My Love of the British Cuppa

Originally uploaded by HoBo1921

There’s nothing like sitting down with a lovely cup of tea 😀

I know my hands aren’t a place, but I wanted to include them in this project as I am reminded of my Nan every time I look at my hands. When Nan wasn’t well I would sit with her and hold her hands, we had the same bony knuckles, the same nail beds, same nail shape. It’s strange how genetics work.

I’m glad I have something like this that will make sure I think of her everyday.

Did you ever have a horror story about your school?

Ours was that in that tower straight ahead, the twins of the headteacher and caretaker had been accidently locked in there and then forgotten about, and now the tower was haunted.(?) Used to scare the crap out of me walking under that tower.

Kids, eh?

In the school holidays, every Tuesday, I would get to go with Nan & Grandad to Birkenhead Market. They would get fresh bread, ham, and watercress for sandwiches & for after, EGG CUSTARD TART!!!!!

(This was a great excuse to go out and by an egg custard tart, he,he)

On my trip down memory lane I visited the local shops that were round the corner from Nan & Grandad’s old house.

Couldn’t believe that the bookies still had this window. I know it may sound strange, but I used to love this window, don’t know if it was the colours or just that it reminds me of going to Nan & Grandad’s! And who said 70’s architecture was crap 😉

The Fab Collective were out in force on Saturday taking street portraits to promote our exhibition that will take place in St Luke’s (bombed out church at the top of Bold St, Liverpool) over August.

This was my first time taking street portraits, it was nerve racking at first, asking people if I could take there portrait, but I think it will get easier with practise.

Sadly my Nan passed away a few weeks ago after losing her fight with cancer, along with the cruel disease dementia.

In the past week there has been a lot of reminiscing.  It made me think of all the memories I have and how I don’t want to forget them.  This gave me an excuse for a project…I’m looking forward to the trip down memory lane 😀

So this is were it all started, 25 and a bit years ago.  I know I wouldn’t be able to remember this, but I’ve got to start somewhere 😀
