- Things that make you emotional
I can, on the whole, watch or view quite a bit without displaying too much emotion. But it’s thinking myself, or worse talking about it, that seem sot get to me. Odd. Particular music – can be maybe a chord sequence, or more likely evocative piece, that equally makes me well up..Posted 3 years agosharkbaitMember
Predictably, thinking about my mum and dad who died six months ago and six years ago.
I will always be grateful for everything they did.
Watching ‘Meet Joe Black’ makes me wonder how anyone can leave their kids.
An evening like tonight is to be savoured and not wasted but doesn’t make me emotional.
A sunny and windless early morning down at the beach hut making bacon butties for the family is pretty perfect though.

Recounting the tale of the time when I was restraining my then 4 year old daughter who had a phobia of needles as she was about to have her next dose of chemotherapy but they couldn’t find a vein despite numerous attempts and had resorted to between her toes to get a cannula in and as she wrestled with me she screamed and screamed ” don’t let them do it to me daddy, please, please please, no” over and over followed by ” daddy I hate you” over and over…….thankfully by the next dose she had a central venous line implanted.Posted 3 years ago
Tears rolling down my cheeks now, but she survived against the odds and is a healthy, happy, successful 25 year old who gets married next year………binnersSubscriber
You’d have to have a heart of stone not to cry at Mushi on Educating Yorkshire
Got to admit to having a bit of a sniffle watching the veterans being thanked by the locals in Normandy the other day. Seeing how much it meant to everyone
Thanks for sharing that suggsey! I can only imagine what that was likePosted 3 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Odd stuff. Most recently, seeing that woman sing nessun dorma on bgt on Saturday, inspired me to find Pavarotti singing it to show my daughters. Took me back to 1990, world cup in Italy, gazza’s tears, etc., which coincided with the end of my final year at university….. and before I know it, the eyes were stinging as I blinked back tears.
Suggsey’s post too. My eldest had a very minor illness in the grand scheme of things a few years back. But it was taking time to resolve and one night in tears she said to me ‘what if I never get better Daddy?’
I don’t think I’d cope in that situation, and I want it on record here and now, that if there is a god, or an uber-being that controls fate, if you have anything like that planned for either of my girls, I will take it on ten times over if it means they don’t have to.Posted 3 years agoBunnyhopSubscriber
Come on you hard hearted lot, there must be something?
Tonight it’s warm and barmy, there is hardly a breeze and as I walk up the hill toward the pub, the local brass band are in the beer garden practising. On arriving home I open all windows and let in the sound. Brings a tear to the eye.Posted 3 years agoleftyboySubscriber
Watching my wife fighting for her life after catching an infection from the central line that she had to deliver her chemotherapy. The consultant saying he couldn’t do any more and we just had to wait to see if she made it though the night left me in tears for over an hour before my tear ducts dried up.
She survived and today got the all clear so turned out OK, she’d a few more tears but more of joy this time.Posted 3 years ago
Funnily enough the many occasions when she asked me if she was going to die ( because unfortunately weekly on the ward children were dying) doesn’t create the upsetting memories probably because I was 100% positive that I was not going to let her think she would die Even when survival rate reduced to 5% due to secondaries developing. The whole period in our lives did change me and the family for the better I believe living for today and having time over money.
And thanks for the support, it helps to always realise that even in the depths of your own personal tragedy there is always someone worse off, back then and any other time in my life since.Posted 3 years ago
