Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

Daily treasures

I haven’t blogged for ages but I noticed this week’s challenge is Treasure. I came across this quote this week via A Design So Vast and it really resonated with me.  Lately I’ve been bored and restless so this is the reminder I needed to create the life I want. This photo is of my treasured husband and son. This week my son was accepted into the army and will be leaving us soon so I am mindful of how much I treasure him and how much he will be missed by us.





Heading towards Mary’s house, Moshi, Tanzania

Last week I had a job interview and was asked to refer to a situation where I had been challenged by  cross-cultural communication. I started talking about my friend Mary from Tanzania and how much she had taught me, how knowing her taught me to be less judgemental of other people as I realised that you can never really know a person’s true situation and circumstances. I had come to Tanzania thinking I was there to help others but in the end I found it was people like Mary that helped me.

To my absolute mortification I started to tear up thinking about her. How much I missed her and how much she meant to me. It was a job interview! The interview panel of three were very kind and understanding but it really was completely inappropriate. I didn’t get the job and I wish it hadn’t happened but it might give you an indication of the nostalgia I feel when I look at this photo of Mary.

Photo Challenge: Lunch

Delhi Thali

Gosh, what I wouldn’t give for an authentic Delhi thali right now! I just ate an egg and lettuce sandwich for lunch but I didn’t think it was worthy of a photo so I have dug up an old photo of something a little bit more interesting.

This is my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge – Lunchtime
