|There was one thing I did for Maureen while she
was in hospital that was a little bit special.
She had asked if I would bring in a picture of us with a frame so she could put it on the bedside table and look at us.
I thought about it, and then I thought about her white walls, which were only broken up by the "breastfeeding clinic" poster, and the "Hospital channel" poster.
I decided I could do better than bring in "a" picture of us.
I set to work on my computer, and with my trusty scanner, and colour
printer, I made "wallpaper" for her.
I think I brought in about 60 8"x10" images. The pictures were of
us, our family and our travels. They included pictures from our wedding,
our honeymoon, our various holidays and family picnics. I also included
a couple of antique postcards from either Maureen's or my collection.
Saved for posterity on film, here are two images of our wall!
From the foot of her bed:
And from the wall beside her bed:
The wall was taken down when they moved Maureen to a different room
on Tuesday November 10th, but it served its purpose.
