Big ears

Oh, now look at that donkey's ears! Okay, here's one from the archive... today, 26 June 2009, is the 94th anniversary of my mother's birth. Here we are, on a day at the seaside, when I was (I imagine) around three years old. Judging by the pebbles on the beach, we were probably in Brighton. It's interesting to see how well-dressed she was - the trip must have been quite an occasion (though judging from my own attire, it can hardly have been at the height of summer).

 

Mum died 30 years ago, and this is the earliest photo I have of the two of us together. I don't actually remember the day, of course, but even so, this is a much valued happy snap, probably taken by a beach photographer.
