Three Quotes Challenge – Day 2


I’ve  been nominated again for the Three Quotes Challenge, this time by Nitin Chandran Nair on his blog, Nitin Nair Writes. Thank you Nitin! I know Nitin mostly through the flash fiction challenges, even though I have time for very few of those nowadays. Unfortunately.

These are the RULES for this one:

1. Post on three consecutive days

2. Pick one or three quotes per day

3. Challenge three different bloggers per day

4. Thank the blogger who nominated you.

For this challenge I’ve decided to post three quotes a day, each day on a different topic.

So, here goes with Day 2. As you may well have guessed from the above picture, I’m posting quotes about families today. Those of you who know me, will know that I have six children. Yes, I probably am a glutton for punishment. They’re all well grown up now, the eldest being 43 and the youngest 32. We certainly had a fun time when they were all young, especiallly on those ‘special’ days of the year and holidays together.

As for the quotes, there are dozens out there on this topic, most of them applauding the value of a happy, loving family – the togetherness and support kind of thing. I can’t dispute any of them, but for my quotes today, I’ve tried to pick three quotes that give a slightly different or quirky view of the family unit.

Families Quote 3

Children 1988 (2)

Family Quote 3

The second of these pictures was taken in 1988 on a Norfolk beach. Our eldest daughter didn’t want to play ‘let’s bury Richard and Neil’ on this occasion, so there are only five children in the photo. Louise is the one in the middle, piling up the sand. (Perhaps she was looking for fairies for her future blog. :)) It’s a photo of an old photo, so the quality is awful  – sorry about that – but it was the nearest picture I could find to suit the quote.

I can relate to the first two of these quotes very well, but the last one not so much.

Here are my three nominees for today:

Antonia – on her blog, Zoale

Cameron – over at The World’s Biggest Fridge Magnet

Lynne – at Lynne’s Recipe Trails
