It's a funny thing...but when you look at old photos, you sometimes find things or people that you hadn't really noticed before. Last week I copied a photo from my 40th Garden Party, for my mum's god daughter. Obviously both she and my late mother are in the photo. However all these years later I realised that my friend Lorraine's mother, Peggy, was also in the photo. (as well as my friend Tricia) Peggy has since died, so it was poignant for my friend that I sent that photo via email to her.

A few years ago I was sorting old school photos of mine to add to the Facebook page of my old school. (I was a student and later a teacher there) I saw a familiar face in a crowd shot taken at the 75th celebrations in 1979. I checked with DH whether I was correct. You see I thought it was his mother in the crowd...and it was. Not only his mother but his nephew and niece were with her as well. (DH and his 3 brothers had all gone to the same school) By the time I met DH, his mother had died, so I had never met her. I recognised her from family photos.
