I know that this photograph isn’t clear, crisp or in any way perfect… but this is me and my Dad at my 30th birthday on Friday. It came from us talking about when he held me thirty years ago as a fresh newborn. And off the cuff, he said, ‘Let’s do it again!’
So thirty years on and much heavier than I was back then, my dad scooped me up for a photograph for the memory book. It was funny, we laughed and then I rested my head on his shoulder, giggling like I’m sure I have plenty of times over the years.
I love this photograph so much (even though, he is never allowed to do it again because he suffers a bad back sometimes!)
I’m glad we managed to get this one. It’s a perfect picture to start a new chapter of memory making.
