Sepia Saturday 39 : Di


It's going to be a busy weekend and therefore I am posting a little early again. We need to get ready for the visit of my niece Diana and her family who will be travelling over from the British Virgin Islands on Wednesday. They will be staying with us for about three weeks whilst Junior, their son, will be staying here and going on to University in Sheffield. So there are rooms to get ready, food to buy and plans to make. It is only fitting that this week's Sepia Saturday offering should be one of Di herself, taken forty years or so ago. I am not sure that she has a copy of this photograph, if not it will be interesting for her to see how many objects she can still recognise. Safe journey over, Di, Nat and Junior : we are looking forward to seeing you.

  3. Oh the stories that could made up about what caused the stare towards the ceiling. Perhaps she'll have a memory of the moment.

  6. What a charming shot, Alan. I love photographs of children, caught, distracted from looking straight into the lens.

    Good luck with your preparations.

  8. What an exciting time for everyone concerned. I hope you have a lovely time with your visitors and that Junior enjoys life at Uni. It'll be nice for you to be able to have closer contact with him and I'm sure his parents will be reassured by you being close 'Just in case!'.

  9. Is that tape I see on the bottoms of her shoes? Good trick to keep a sweet thing from slipping and going boom!

  12. Won't Diana be surprised to see herself front and center on your blog?! She's adorable, and so focused. Someone was probably speaking to her...? I hope you and your wife have a wonderful time with Diana and her family.
