As soon as I read this prompt I was sure I'd have a hard choice of all the nostalgia inducing items to photograph. Strangely though as I looked around my house it was mainly photos which I saw rather than objects. We have been together twenty odd years and Colin is not big on old furniture and with so many years with little kids about I have always kept family heirlooms in my Mum's part of the house , these days in a small glass cabinet.. the Worcester jugs, the little gold teaset, other odds and ends which just don't really fit into a busy household such as ours.
Around lunchtime I got a lovely email from my cousin who although she only lives about 15 miles away, but we don't see each other that often. But boy, when we do the chat, gossip and nostalgia gets a good going over. Her grandfather was best friends with my Dad, they joined the navy together in the second war and my mum introduced him to her friend, so the two couples ended up married.
Later on my Dad took Sarah's Dad Barry under his wing and helped him when he was starting out fishing from the Cove, so as you can imagine, even though Dad has been gone over 40 years he is still remembered by the younger members of the community... and as Sarah said even though she never knew him, he was a kind of legend in their household.
She agreed with my words about Cornish fences being more like hedges and sent me this pic of a typical cliff hedge from a winter walk.
