Hand in Hand – My Captured Moment

My Captured Moment today was taken at my girls Grandparents house.

It’s been a rocky old ride of late as many of you know, but we’ve stayed close together as a family.

This was one evening when we were invited around for a spur of the moment supper.  So, once I’d picked up Holly from pre-school, we trundled out to the beautiful Berkshire countywide where they live and helped prepared the food while the boys were still out on the golf course.

It was such a beautiful summers evening, a little chill in the air, but this didn’t stop my girls going out into their fabulous back garden to play.  It was just too sweet not to grab my camera and capture the moment as Holly and Ella went hand in hand towards the back gate, a big sister helping her little sister along the way.

It’s such a lovely house, because the views are superb, and as we sat and watched the field full of either barley or corn – I’m afraid I’m not sure which – it almost looked like waves flowing back and forth with the wind.

And then the boys returned and it was supper time.  There was no catching Holly as she sprinted back up to the house, leaving Ella and I to trundle back on our won.

A lovely captured moment with just my girls and the peaceful solace of the countryside.

      Mutu dit :Les parents avaient tout simplement honte de l’orientation sexuelle de leur fils. Ils n’ont pas voulu être jugés par la société car être parent d’un homosexuel est très grave à leurs yeux. Il faut reconnaitre que c’est assez complexe comme situation car ce jeune homme est autant la victime de sa famille, mais aussi des autorités laxistes et incompétentes.Qu’il repose enfin en paix , ce jeune homme.

    What a lovely moment. I love it when you catch them being sweet to each other. The other day, my daughter was crying and my son comforted her until she stopped. He said proudly “I fixed Stella!” She on the other hand will do endless funny faces to try to make him laugh. Siblings rock xxx

      I’m going to Australia for the month of july and I wanted to work for 3 months, I was wondering what the best paying job would be for a backpacker? and also the nicest place to live for the months of july, august, september? What would the average monthly rent be ?

    • Anonymous/Mr Noodles: I'd be the first to admit my knowledge of Chinese political geography is rather limited. But when a restaurant calls itself "Xinjiang" and I go in and find it's very very similar to Sichuan, with the same cold tripe, pork intestines and Sichuan pepper dishes as a Sichuan restaurant, then you'll forgive me for putting 2 and 2 together.Perhaps your issue should be with Silk Road for not being authentically Xinjiangese enough?

    These photos are stunning.
    What a beautiful captured moment.
    I have memories of that fresh breeze while walking hand in hand with my sister across the fields to my grans house nearby. I’ll never forget the smells of the 3 cornered leek on the side of the field & the smell of summer on the air, the hazey light & the long grassed fields we’d walk through. I do wish our moments like this were captured in image. x
