Oooh that Tara Cain has set a challenge this week, although to be honest the hardest thing has been deciding whether to use a funny or soppy photo. But in the spirit of the prompt to find a photo that tells a story I am going with funny.
This ladies and gentlemen is a photo of my with a push chair, you will note how shiny and new it looks. This is because it was its maiden voyage into the big bad world just a few days after Matilda was born.
I will preface this story to share with you that the lady of the manor and I are well educated people, we have GCSE’s, A-Levels, a degree each and I even have a post graduate qualification in the form of being a Chartered management accountant. Keep this in mind as I share THE STORY.
Everything looks fine and dandy in this photo doesn’t it? Under control and ready to get on the move. Well looks can be deceiving, this is most definitely the calm after the storm. Notice the sun glasses on the floor and the nice shade of red on my face.
The preceding 10 minutes to this photo consisted of much swearing and struggling to get that bloody push chair open and fixed in place. It had seemed so easy at home when there wasn’t people watching and a baby waiting. It honestly took us more than 10 minutes to get it out of the car, open and fully ready to go.
If someone had filmed us wrestling to open it they would most definitely have got the £250 from you’ve been framed. In fact I might go and check YouTube to make sure it’s not on there.
