Photo-Finish Friday And A Story…

I do miss her…
No…no, officer.  Not that way.  The photo was just a joke…honest!!!
Seriously, we used to have fantastic house parties, chocked full of family and friends.  Since we moved up to Scotland, they are a thing of the past although when we meet up we have some fun.  My mum is a great woman and at 71 she is still working hard running a Working Men’s Club back in Manchester, as well as looking after my dad who is going from strength to strength after his stroke before Christmas. 
After this photo she swore she was going to kick my a… smack my bottom!!
