I stole something from the internet. Well it was facebook actually. I am not frightened to tell you and I will not beg forgiveness either. You see I feel entitled to take what I did. I kinda own it in a roundabout way.
When you nurture, feed and watch something or someone grow, then it belongs to you for life. Right?
What did I steal? I hear you ask.
The answer is simple. It was a photo. A nice photo of someone I love.
My Elly tries to convince me that she works really hard. Head down from the minute she goes into the office until way after she comes home. I nearly believe her! 😉
One day a week or so ago, there were visitors to her place of work and my Elly being my Elly, was right there where it happened. The six Nations Rugby Cup, no doubt accompanied by some brawny players came to visit.
Elly with RBS 6 Nations Cup
As a young lady who played rugby while studying in France at University, she not only played on a ladies team, but on one occasion, played on an all male team against an all male team. So I suppose you cannot fault her for taking the opportunity to hold that cup in her sweet little hands.
It is a lovely photo of her and I have added it to my desktop, so when I open up the laptop in the morning she is smiling at me (just like she did as a little girl) and the last thing I see before shutting down for the night is Elly.
It brings her closer to me, but as I head south today I will see her for a real hug sometime in the next few days. I wonder if Buffy knows I will be around at some stage during the week.
Yesterday I arrived to a rapturous welcome from Buffy, my visit was short, I had places to go and people to see, with plenty of hugs, paw shakes and attempts to lick my face…
Thank you Elly & Brogen for calling in, Real hugs are way better than any photo!
Now for breakfast and a little planning to see what mischief we can get up to today.
Blogging & blog visiting might be light for a few days.
I wish the rugby players had been in with the cup, but alas no! I’d much rather have had a photo taken with them, than just the cup. It was for a charity event in work, you paid to have your photo taken with it.
Congratulations Scrumhalf! I remember the pw too!
Elly, I love that photo, the smile has not changed over the years.
That is a nice photo of your daughter. She resembles you.
Gigi, she is very like her dad and his mother before that. I suppose ther has to be a little of me in there too!
Hope there are hugs all around! and you have a great time with your lovely girl.
Brighid, I am with my sister at the moment, but Elly came over last night for some hugs. I will hopefully have a few days with her next week.
I borrow stuff from FB a lot. Once you post it people can copy it. Have fun with Elly.
Dianne, the fun has started already.
I think so, Nancy!
GM, I love the picture of Elly….She looks wonderful and full of fun! Have a nice visit in Dub and tell everybody I said “Hello”.
Yes, it is a nice photo of my baby, her ankle is doing very well, so she smiles without thinking again! I will certainly pass on your hellos and good wishes to all who know you!
Ankle is completely back to normal and my case closed out by the physio this morning, so that’s great!
Great news, Elly. I am delighted to hear it.
