I was playing with the graphic design software to learn some new tricks.
I pasted an old photo of me and my mum next to my daughter. My mum is very pixelated as the photo was tiny. I know with "Gaussian blur" you could do something about it but I didn't have the patients.
I actually just wanted to see how much we looked alike at similar ages. I discover more often that my daughter and me are alike. Last week, the last day before she went back to Wellington my husband was out. So no TV as we both dislike it and music on. She started dancing on old disco like "We are family and boogie wonderland" and I joined in. She is a great dancer and even won the title best dancer at the pram at high school. I am not bad myself and we both love it. We had great fun although I had a bad back for a couple of days. lol
Mayke is artistic and she writes poetry. I love both as well but she is far better than me. My mum actually never did anything arty but she is a good writer. She only used it professionally.
All three of us are strong willed, hard working, independent thinkers and drama queens.
Both my mum and my daughter are far more mature than I was in my early twenties. My daughter is already quite philosophical, is all about sustainability etc. which gained my interest at middle age.
Like me and my mum she dislikes housekeeping and loves food. We always have lunch together when she is in Christchurch. Oh I miss her already.
