Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

Sometimes it’s the things behind us that really matter


I'm not the really cool part of the photo - can you pick what it is? Clue -  I'm standing on top of the Empire State Building!

Author: Have A Laugh On Me

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. Are they the Twin Towers behind you? They give me chills to see these days!

    Great pic!

  2. Wow, I would love to go there one day. Awesome photo!!

  3. Wow – that’s a a piece of history.

  4. Found you via Twinkle…visit me at NanaHood.com and link up if you have time! Blessings to you!

  5. Ooo yep a trip there is definitely on my bucket list! Lucky you!

  6. They were the first things I noticed in the picture!

  7. Wow, the twin towers…some events can’t be erased from our memories.

  8. Oh wow! What an amazing photo to have now.

  9. Oh just seeing them takes me back to that day. It was so surreal watching it all unfold on the news. That’s a great piece of history to have Em.

  10. Twin Towers of course… Having goose bumps looking at your picture…

  11. That’s a great photo to have, to be able to show your kids one day.

  12. Love NYC…we went to ground zero, they were still in construction for the new memorial. Very Spooky, a lot of history.

    • It’s a strange feeling for sure. Because I was there when it happened, I never really wanted to go and see the devastation because it was hampering the ‘clean up’ efforts of the firefighters/police etc. But I will get back there one day.

  13. Oooooh! The Twin Towers! I’m getting goose bumps too…

  14. Twin Towers! I have been there too much before Sep’11 happened. What a great picture to have πŸ™‚

  15. Wow! Pretty amazing to have those twin towers in the background. On another note – I totally hate heights so you wouldn’t catch me doing that!

  16. You know what, I was looking at the background before I read the caption, and thought it was a faded out graffiti hand giving a peace sign, like on tiles or something. And then I read the caption and thought, wow…

  17. Yes it’s not a great image, I took a photo with my iPhone of a news story/photo I wrote that was published some tens years ago – I wish I knew where that actual photo was 😦

  18. Definitely a piece of history!

  19. I wouldn’t have known. A bittersweet memory i imagine and incredible at same time.
    Thanks for linking up.

  20. You would have had such an emotional experience being over there during 9/11, I doubt you’d ever forget everything that occurred that day. I’m sure that photo is bittersweet.

    My husband and I were just talking today about planning a trip to the US in a few years time. It’s a dream of ours to take the kids to Disneyland before they grow up and take in the sights of New York City as well – fingers crossed we can make it happen.

    • We would also LOVE to take kids to Disneyland when they’re older, and to show them NY’s great places, such as Central Park Zoo, Ice Skating rink etc etc. I really hope you can get over there, it would be a once in a lifetime trip for sure πŸ™‚

  21. Looks like you’ve had some great adventures in your time. a photo that probably didn’t seem so significant when it was taken.

  22. Ohhh I spotted that right away…Thanks for linking up for WW!

  23. Wow! That’s really neat. You never think that a picture like that at the time could mean so much years later.

  24. Wow. Great pic to have.

  25. Fabulous memory and that’s a great way to put it. I had breakfast up the top long before it came down and feel happy that I did.

    • I’m totally stoked you commented on the double meaning πŸ™‚ Wow that would have been amazing. We were in TT2 3 days before they fell, freaky. But we are the lucky ones, in so many ways. Thanks for visiting and commenting Carolyn.
