A Different Kind of Family Album

This blog post was written by my sister. It has touching memories of my childhood and is a a piece of the big puzzle that makes me ‘ME’. Blue Bird Cafe has some great ‘retro stories with a twist’ that I’m sure you would enjoy. http://bluebirdcafe14.wordpress.com/about/

A family album is a record of the life of members of a family. In it, holidays, celebrations and everyday events are documented in photos. It becomes a treasure to pour over in later days. We laugh at the out of date clothing and hairstyles and marvel at how babies have grown; we smile at the photos of family celebrations and milestones; we remember those who, for whatever reason, are no longer with us. The history of the family is there, preserved for all time. As a photographer, this is always part of my belief as I make images.

Author: Travelling Macs

A mum to 2 grown up children who always make me proud, a wife and a full time school teacher. I love eating great food but am not motivated to cook. Love traveling around this great country in which I live. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

  1. My mum also has hand written recipes which I must ask her for. The article has definitely jogged my memory!

  2. Loved this blog, I too have lots of handwritten recipes, although not down from my mum, she was no cook. It was my dad who did a lot of the cooking, but mainly on the weekends, and then only plain cooking such as fish and chips, and the Sunday roast. Cakes were always shop,bought until I was old enough to make them at about aged 12. On the other hand, my mother-in-law was – wonderful sweets cook. Whenever we visited, there would always be at least two sweets to choose from, and five or six varieties of cakes and slices for afternoon tea. She is famous for her “dainties”. I must raid her recipes !

    • My dad cooked too, on Sunday nights ( something easy like toasted sandwiches or burgers, as lunch was the big roast) but it was a break for mum. I think you should definitely raid the recipes of your MIL 🙂

  3. So many beautiful keep sakes. We don’t have anything like this in our family, which makes me a little sad 😦

I enjoy reading comments so don't forget to add one please :)
