Photo Meme

Well, this is a new experience! I've never heard of a Meme before but was sent one by the charming @violetposy on Twitter.

The rules are:
  1. Open up the oldest photo folder on your pc
  2. Scroll to the 10th photo
  3. Post the photo and the story behind it
  4. Tag 5 or more people to continue the thread

My laptop's reasonably newish so I was never going to uncover anything ancient but this photo is from our family holiday last year (the 'interesting' angle is a bit too interesting though, makes me feel slightly queasy).

As Willow is only in Year One at school we're still reeling from the shock of the cost of taking family holidays at peak times and are in the process of formulating strategies to cope. Last year we decided to take advantage of having family in far flung locations so we spent almost 2 weeks up in Warrington with my parents. Mid-week while Mum and Dad were working we took the girls off to Llandudno to a B&B for a couple of nights.

We were incredibly lucky with the weather and as soon as we landed we headed for the beach, where this photo was taken. Later, we took our tired, sandy off spring back to the B&B and tucked them up in bed. Adam and I got a bottle of red from the bar, took it up to the first floor residents lounge with it's panoramic views and watched the sun set over Llandudno Bay.

Maybe I'm easily pleased but it was easily one of the best holidays we've had. That and the Peak District, oh and London at Easter and ....

By the way, the photo below is the one I would have chosen to represent this holiday if I'd been given more of a choice!


  1. I got sent a 'meme' a while ago..but never did anything with it as I had no idea what it least I will now know for future reference...thanks for sharing your story...I think sunsets are great!!!

    you do know you forgot to tag people in your post though...or is it done some other way???

  2. Oh, should have said, I did the tags on Twitter (tagged you btw) as that was how it was sent to me.

  3. Haven't had one of these in ages! =) Will get to it this weekend hopefully, and will do a trackback.

    Love the 2nd pic, lol

  4. Just realised I didn't link to the photo in my tweet - doh!
