Before I was married or had children, I used to snigger at people who had large photos of themselves adorning the walls of their house.
I suppose not so much their kids, but the cheesey wedding pics that took up a whole wall of their living room.
Roll on a few years and, with a wedding and a child under our belts, I have totally changed my view on this.
If you’ve spent a fortune on a wedding, why shouldn’t you have the chance to look at a memento of your day every time you pass the stairs.
Likewise, when you’ve agonised in labour for ten hours, why shouldn’t you stare up at a photo of your little darling when you’re settling down to watch Corrie and think ‘I made that?’
I am being facetious but you get what I mean.
When We moved to the farm, I ordered a photo of our wedding on a canvas and a photo of Boo when she was a baby. They have pride of place in our lounge.
So when the lovely people at Canvas Design offered me another canvas, I jumped at the chance
to bore people with our faces look adoringly at our wall art.
I had to pick another photo!
It was a toughie as we don’t tend to have many family photos together. I don’t know why, I suppose unless someone else is there taking photos, it is usually Hubster or me behind the lens.
Then I remembered one from when we went on the Santa Express last December and choose that one.
It arrived superbly packaged and was massive. I moved an exsisting photo from a wall in our lounge and replaced it with my shiney new canvas.
It looks lovely (if I do say so myself) and now, wherever you sit in the living room, you can’t escape from seeing a photo of one of us.
It’s our house, deal with it.
