Looking back

A young David Dobson
An even younger Jean (Morton), still in her teens here, I think.

I thought it apt to give these photos of my late parents, David and Jean Dobson, an airing now as it was Fathers’ Day on Sunday 20th and the 21st June was my mum’s birthday – and the official opening of the strawberry season as her birthday treat in our family!

I’ve always loved these photos. There is a hand-coloured version of mum’s too, which as a small child I thought very glamorous.

It’s some 20 years since we lost mum and almost 40 since dad died suddenly and much too young, but both are still very much cherished and present in memory.
