Apprenticed to my Mother: on camera

A lovely story about Geoff Le Pard’s mum who sounds perfectly capable of dealing with modern technology as the best of us and I am with her on the video camera.. why do they have panavision wide lenses… #recommended.


same curly hair, same cheeky grin, 77 years later..

My mother was 81 when she moved into her new bungalow. She had a knee replacement soon after dad died having been putting it off while he was ill. Never one to exercise or indeed do anything that might be considered ‘good’ for you if it didn’t fit her own current ideal of what was ‘good’ she wasn’t especially mobile. In designing the refurbishment I managed to persuade her to have a wet room installed which, despite reservations, she loved. No steps into the shower and a seat to perch on as she abluted. ‘Yes, darling, it has been a good move.’

If that was a plus the other item I persuaded her to include was less successful. The video entrance system. The concept is, of course, simple and the technology well-tried and tested. From the start she didn’t like it.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

I would be delighted to receive your feedback. Thanks Sally
