I just have to post photos of my grandchildren to illustrate this week’s photo challenge. The theme is Partners and these two are definitely partners when it comes to getting up to mischief. But they adore each other!
Following on from the surprising result of our referendum on membership of the European Union this week, I feel sad that our partnership with the other European countries is coming to an end. So many people gave so much to bring peace and partnership to Europe during the wars, not least the combined services of army, airforce and navy. In their honour I am posting some photos I took on Remembrance Day at Westminster Abbey in London.
I can’t resist putting in some of my favourite photos. Of course my little Dachsund, Dayna, is a wonderful companion for me, but her hero is my husband. When he is at the hospital for dialysis she often sits beside (or on) his slippers waiting for his return. The pair of ponies share a field near me so I guess they qualify as partners. And of course the garden birds are my constant delight and we have a partnership. I feed them regularly and they reward me by coming into my garden and sometimes even into the house like this little one!
And last but not least, partners for life ….literally!
My mum and Dad lived in parallel streets as children and went to the same school. They were friends from the age of 8 and eventually married in 1945. They were inseparable until my father died in 1993 and she followed him some years later.
