Then and Now

I am cheating slightly for my first 'Flashback Friday' post by editing a post I had already contributed to The Gallery's 'Then and Now' theme - but it did seem rather appropriate. Call it recycling rather than cheating - it sounds much nicer!

This is a photograph my husband and I as we were when we were both students at Bristol University and the re-creation of it nearly thirty years later.

Back when we were students, we made a promise to meet up in our middle age and five years ago, that is exactly what happened. We were both separated from our spouses and in what some might call a whirlwind romance, we fell in love. He relocated from Switzerland where he was living to be with me, we had a daughter together, we got married and now we have our baby son.

He has less hair now and I'm less chubby and have more wrinkles but fundamentally we're not so different from the teenagers we once were.


  1. Wow, lovely photos and great story to go with it.

  2. Oh wow, just spotted this post too. Just brilliant. I love stories like that. Sounds like a movie!

  3. Oh bless you! I love it! That is exactly what I was hoping for in this challenge. Fabulous! Thanks so much for taking part!


  4. You've blown me away with this post.

    Fab photos and I simply LOVE the romance of the story.

    I also joined Flashback Friday today (for the 1st time).
