Recently I’ve shared a few family photographs which were taken while my husband Roger was at home on breaks from the hospice. They are pretty much the only pictures we have of all four of us together, and nice as it is to have them we do both love looking back on old photos from our holidays when he was fit, well, and more importantly, happy.
These are the photos which show the true Roger in my eyes and the ones which I will treasure most in years to come. I recently started trying to organise and back up all my photos – a daunting task when I have a few thousand which all need sorting through – and it’s reminded me how carefree and also how young we looked before any of this happened. The events of the past few years have certainly aged me and I can see many more grey hairs and sadly a few more wrinkles around my eyes.
If you read my blog regularly or know us in real life, you’ll know Rog fell ill a few months before our daughter was born so all our pictures prior to that are just of my husband, myself and Sam, who is now six. These images show us on holiday in France in summer 2012 when we spent a gorgeous week in Uzes, between Avignon and Nimes.
I’m sharing them as part of the My Captured Moment project with Heledd at Running in Lavender.
