So my blog’s name comes from my grandparents. Arnold being my grampy’s surname and Bird being my gran’s maiden name. My grampy, apart from being a pig farmer all his life, was an avid pigeon racer as well. The nice thing about this is that there is a pigeon in my logo but it also ties in nicely with my gran’s maiden name being bird!
As my blog name comes from my family I wanted to look further into my family history. My gran kindly found out old photos and although it took a while (she knew it was there somewhere!) found this one where he had won many trophies in one night for the year’s racing season. I love it as although each trophy had to go back after a year, I always remember seeing the different trophies at my grandparents house when I was younger.
I love the vintage style of this photo and the sign in the background ‘No smoking on dance floor’!
