I have been ‘photo tagged’ by my good friend 39 and Counting and told to follow a set of rules that picks out one of my photos and then I’m charged with explaining it.
Hmm, how do I explain this?
First of all I should start by apologising to all the intellectuals who decided to spend a quiet afternoon in their local art gallery that day, only to be greeted by this sight!
The noise the children made was possibly as loud as their face paint.
Then we gave them E numbers to shut them up (in the guise of sweets).
So the photo is of my son Daniel, who was then 5, his wife Heather also 5, and 3-year-old Mia at the beautiful Birmingham Art Gallery on a day when Heather’s mum and I decided we should get them out the house and do something ‘interesting’ and ‘educational’.
In our defence, we had just visited an exhibition on ‘myths and monsters’ where they had their faces painted.
However, judging by the reactions of some of the museum visitors, they clearly just thought we were mad.
Well, they thought Heather’s mum was mad because obviously I had slipped off to admire some artwork somewhere else and was totally pretending I wasn’t with this weird crowd.
Of course, whenever there is a meme there are rules and they are these:
Go to the 4th folder in your computer where you store your pictures
Pick the 4th picture in that folder
Explain the picture
Tag 4 people to do the same.
So first of all I am tagging 2 people who are just the best fun I’ve had on Twitter:
Tracy at I Hate My Message Board (who has recently been posting photos of haggis on her blog, so lord only knows where this is going!)
Kool Aid (who has just discovered the word snog and now you can’t shut her up!)
The next two are relatively new blogs I’ve been reading and really enjoying:
More Than Just A Mother (or MTJAM if you’re lazy and overly familiar like me) and
Home Office Mum, because well, that’s what I am aiming to be! Oh and she has a really exciting plan up her sleeve.
And if anyone else wants to take this tag up, go for it, it’s actually kind of cathartic!
