Weekly Photo Challenge: Jubilant


OK, so it’s not a new pic of me – it’s from the summer of 2011, just before my first granddaughter was born. Some of you may recognize it from my previous blog – I’m not usually keen on images of me but I must admit this is one of my favourites.

I was jumping on a large trampoline in my parents’ garden that had actually been put up for my grandson to play on – I took one look at it and just had to have a go too. I honestly don’t remember the last time I had so much fun, even though I could hardly move for days afterwards – but at that moment I felt like a kid again, jumping higher and higher as I grew in confidence, full of life and ready to take on the world…

My husband took loads of photographs of me jumping, most none too flattering – it’s not easy for an overweight middle-aged grandmother to look anything but ungainly on a trampoline – but for me this one image successfully captures exactly how I was feeling on that day – it’s the perfect memory ā¤

  1. I cannot tell you how many times I had to re-read that first sentence: “…just before my first granddaughter was born”. It didn’t make sense because the person in the photo doesn’t look old enough to be a grandmother. I suppose jubilation does wonders for one’s appearance šŸ˜‰
