I've been tagged!!

It's really simple. I love how every photo tells a story. Some short stories, some long tales. I want to know what is your favourite photo of yourself. Everyone has one. The photo they look at and smile. It reminds them of something, some time, some place. A moment in time.

So share the photo, share the story and then tag three other people. I want to see photos and stories all around the blogosphere.


I have been tagged by my lovely friend Jacqui from Meeabee
And like Jacqui most of the photos I really like of myself are pre-digital..I'm sure I like them because they are pre OLDER!! Anyway always up for a challange I am going to brave it out. So when I was looking through my photos (very few of me I might add as I am always the one behind the camera!) I have decided to add two. The first one is not because I like the photo of me..who does just after they have given birth...but I like me, BECAUSE I have just given birth!!

My Daughter 'Kahlo Dolly Ruby Lindegren' was born at 11.11pm on the 30 Jan 2007..she was 11 days late (well all three of mine were) so I guess this is just how I cook them! I was 11 years older than when I had first given birth to my eldest son. Older & wiser, I knew it hurt so was prepared that anything could happen. Labour started then stopped amazingly when my bestest girlfriend from Wellington said she was on her way (3hr drive). As soon as she walked in the door up it started again! I also had my big girl (step daughter Kyla there, 19 at the time) and of course my darling man big Si.
Sooo It hurt..really really hurt hurt. Then my poor parents poked their heads in the door and both somehow ended up staying as things started to quicken up. As Kahlo's head was crowning...my poor friend fainted so Kyla had to step up to the lower regions (this was meant to put her off..umm she now has a 8moth old!!)..anyway I am straying...after an agonizing struggle my little girl (who I thought was a boy) appeared...all 10.5 lbs of her!!! HUGE..I do breed them big but this was the biggest yet, and first natural! So I was rather chuffed with myself..Older, biggest yet, natural birth , only birth my father had been too, thought I had put Kyla off birth(LOL), my friend who is hard as fainted..and I got me a girl!!!

Ok now I am going to tag Trina at Lola and Ben, Jodee at Babybaby and Kylie at Cackleberry!

If you want to see what I really look like , there is an ok picture of me posted about 5 posts back..I look way better when I haven't just given birth!
BTW..decided NOT to add two..too lazy!
