… sister.

Then (Christmas 1980).

Now.  (Sort of – mum’s 60th birthday party in 2008).
Garry lives in Germany so it’s not often all three of us are snapped together
(we’re more likely to be having fun with Tom and Kim than taking our cameras out).

    Nic’s just suggested SWEETTOOTH – popping it down here because it’s very true and I’ll forget it if I don’t!

    My “s” would have to be sailing, which I don’t get to do much of any more, but nothing is more guaranteed to get me grinning like an idiot than ploughing through waves in a stiff breeze hanging half out of a dinghy.

    I am also a sister, so I mustn’t forget to honour mine (also called Nic)

    My S is for sustainable, because I am a bit of a hippy, although minus the love beads and patchouli oil.

    G – wife knows best!

    Janet – I can see the appeal of sailing but as I get quite travel sick I’ll never find out if I’d grin like an idiot too!

    Fiona – hoorah for sisters called Nic :o)

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
