6th In The 6th Photo Tag

on Monday, June 29, 2009


Here's a bit of fun. Never done one of these before but I can do different. Sandra over at 'A Groovy Kind Of Life' Tagged me to select the 6th picture in my 6th photo folder and give an insightful, creative and delightfully entertaining description of the story behind the photo ... no worries mate!!



We were kicked out! Mark had banished me from my own home. The kids and I could not go back even if we crawled, groveled, begged, whined, manipulated, bribed or seduced. That was it.

So I did what any well educated, refined and socially apt woman would do.

I ran home to mommy and daddy.

This was to the same mom who told me on my wedding day that if Mark and I had a fight, she would take his side!

HIS.!!

Good thing we weren't fighting!

Even better that my amazing man was in fact, looking after his wife [that be me] and his babies.

Our timber floors had become thread bare; unpolished; splintery even. So he sanded, buffed, polished and lacquered our floors within an inch of their shiny lives whilst living outside for a week with the plethora of slithery, stingy and bighty creatures that non Australians believe inhabit our country.

Meanwhile, back at Granmas, we were going boating with Poppy .... hard to take but some just have to endure it ... for the sake of all boating suppliers out there .... think of the families they have to support!!

Pop wrapped his ten grand babies in layer after layer of floatation gizmo's, [Naomi is exhibit A in the photo] popped them in the Tinny* two by two, and hooned around the Brisbane Water's in a serene kind of boaty stupor.

Was nice.

Men got to be providers and do. Women got to be relational and be. And kids got to be free and live.

Notes:
* - Tinny: small outboard boat maybe it's name derived from the fact that it is as small as a tin can.... almost.
