Show and Tell was never a part of my childhood education, probably because I am British and it just doesn't seem to be a part of the British educational system, at least it wasn't about 20 years ago, perhaps it is now, I don't know.
Anyway, Mel of NaComLeavMo (see button on the left!) fame has a bloggie Show and Tell on Sundays and I thought that was such a good idea that I am joining in.
Firstly I would love to claim this brilliant photograph as mine as it was taken using my (then) new camera, but I can't as that would be mean! It was taken by Sandy, the son of the family that I lived with for a year. And this is the point of my Show and Tell, that tap is in the kitchen that belongs to Sue, Jim, Sandy, and Mim; four lovely people who opened their home to me about three years ago when I moved from the North of England to the South and couldn't sell my home in time.
I remember having toast from home-made bread and sitting around the kitchen table chatting and laughing and generally having a good time discussing all manner of things under the sun while Sandy laid on the floor thoroughly exhausted from all the GSCE revision, or while Mim made spiced biscuits, or while Sue and Jim were talking about the bargain of the week from Tescos!
I have a smile on my face now just remembering that year; I just hope that they all understood how very grateful I was that they offered me a place to stay, how much I enjoyed their company and loved being part of their family for a while.
