An Oldie

This double spread was created in 2004 - before I started to blog. It's nothing special really but it is my husbands fav and as I have no digital copy , I thought I would photograph it and share.

The words around the edge read: 
With a little up date 

Open tough Jars (Still)
Measure out injections for our daughter (still)
Have held mine for 21 years ( 32 now)
Cook tea for our children 5 nights a week while I am at work ( thank goodness I changed jobs)
Deliver bread 6 days a week (still)
Cut the grass ( always)
Carried our son to the Chapel of rest after he died
Take our the rubbish (still)
Hold the remote ( always although there are half a dozen now!)
cuddle (still)
Served Queen and country of 13 yrs ( RAF )
Were the first to hold our four children
Rub my back
Have put out fires and saved lives for 15 years ( Retired now)
wash the car (uses car wash)
Are the hands I Love (still)

Job have changed and those poor hands have arthritis and he cannot fit a wedding ring on his finger anymore but other than that - much the same.
