#Pointshoot…A Mixed Bag

#Pointshoot…A Mixed Bag

It’s been a strange week hasn’t it? I pondered over the title of this week’s round up for a while. My first thought was SUNSHINE, because it has been gloriously sunny. We have had some absolutely beautiful days here and Mr Tammy and I had the most wonderful afternoon in the sunshine on Friday, it was a much needed few hours of enjoyment and that wasn’t the only fun in the sun, as you will see. Yet as I looked back over my week I saw it wasn’t all fun. I had my very first Migrane, as someone who suffers with regular headaches I had always thought a migraine would be the same. My goodness was I wrong, I have never been in so much pain and I have had two babies, naturally. It is not an understatement to say that I could not lift my head off of the pillow. It was an actual agony I hope to never have to relive again. Yet there I was thinking how awful that was, when I looked over my Instagram and it all pales into insignificance when I remember the terrible atrocity that happened in Manchester on Monday. It is beyond my comprehension how anybody could do it, what or who they must have seen moments before. I don’t know but this attack has stayed with me, more than any other. I think about it daily. It has genuinely instilled fear in me, real fear, for the first time. I know that is the goal and to admit it is playing into the hands of terrorists. Yet it has not stopped me, I remain defiant and will continue to do what I would do as though Monday hadn’t happened, but for the first time, I am afraid. The rhetoric is right though, we must carry on, we must choose love and we must always remember terrorism has no religion.

Argh sorry about the bum. But it's been a jolly lovely sunny day has it not?!

    The weather has been glorious, I am a disabled stroke survivor so my husband takes me out for a drive in our convertible with the top down when it is warm and sunny which I really enjoy, I worry about terrorism because my eldest son works in security #pointshoot@_karendennis

    I think that last shot is Insta perfect. We have been enjoying the lovely weather here too. It makes such a difference. Migraines are the worst, I ended up in hospital once it was so bad! Thank you for linking up to #PointShoot 📸

    The weather has been gorgeous lately hasn’t it. Sorry to hear about your migraine, I’ve suffered from them since I was 13 and they can be so disabling when they hit. Thankfully I dont get them as bad these days and they tend to last a day rather than two now. Fingers crossed it was a one-off. I love that last picture, story time with Dad is precious x

    It’s certainly been a hot summer thus far. I do hope it doesn’t get any hotter. #FamilyFun
