Picture Postcard

| May 23, 2012 | 15 Comments

The Gallery prompt today is ‘Picture Postcard’ I instantly thought of our holiday last year, which was in Devon. We stayed in this gorgeous thatched cottage, it really was idyllic.

Thatch roofed cottage

It was the first holiday we had been on in really long time, it was full of mixed emotions. I met up with my very good friend Molly from Molly and the Princess. We did whatever we liked for two whole weeks. The girls got sand in their toes, and fish and chips by the sea. We got lost in mazes and played tennis on the lawn.

But during this whole time we were waiting to hear the news.

Behind every photograph there is a story.

Thank you for reading

    It was soooo lovely to see you then, and I love the photo. But yes, it must have been a time of very mixed emotions as you had something else on your mind than just having fun :(

    Hi everyone. Thank you so much for all of the lovely comments.
    It was a really sad time whilst we were there, as my husband’s (Tall Dad) twin brother was very ill, and we waiting to hear news. Unfortunately the news was very sad.
    The cottage was called Ledgers Cottage, in Clyst St Mary. It was the most beautiful cottage, so peaceful and homely.
    Almost wish I’d not chosen this picture, but it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the prompt.
    I’m sorry that I sounded so cryptic it really wasn’t my intention.
