Friends 4×4

Briefly, here’s my card for this week’s theme at Theme Thursday – Friends 4×4 – featuring a Mother/Daughter image from DCS. I chose to make this because until she passed, my Mum was my best friend and I still miss her terribly.

I’ve had the most wonderful day today. Nick arranged for 4 severely disabled guys from The Leonard Cheshire Trust Home local to us to try their hand at fishing today, using the Bideford Angling Club’s Lake in Gammaton. The Professional Coaches (both themselves disabled) gave their time for free and DD and I joined in making teas, coffees, bacon butties and helping cast out, land fish and put maggots on hooks. Even the weather was gloriously kind to us and I now have to go download the photos and blog about it for Nick’s Reels on Wheels Blog and Forum.

Edited: If you’d like to see the photos of our marvellous day, click HERE.  And for those of you who don’t know, a bacon butty is merely a bread roll or sandwich with a couple of slices of cooked bacon (and brown sauce generally) in it – another great English Heritage Treasure!!!!!… Personally, I prefer mustard and onions in mine – 😉

It is in the company of guys like this, that I am humbled enough to see that I have no problems whatsoever – I regained my perspective thanks to them! 🙂
