After reading Kelly Rae's blog and seeing her pics of her old self I thought I would post a few of mine... it was fun going through the box and remembering those old times. I had a good childhood with lots of fond memories.
(the neighbourhood kids all ready for the first day of school... I am first on the left and my brother next to me)
(I got my photo in the paper during a holiday craft class... I loved the stripy top, it was black and red velvet)
I think I was a bit of a tom boy growing up, didn't wear too many dresses. Although once I remember going into a shop with dad and I was wearing a dress and the man behind the counter thought I was a boy. My mum always said that I would probably never grow my hair long... and so it was always short... but once I turned 15 I thought I would give it a go and it has never been short since.
I grew up in a neighbourhood where there were quite a few kids around and I remember we used to put on plays for our parents in the holidays. We would practice for days and on opening night would charge them to come and watch us. I also remember there was a witch who would walk up and down our street and you had to watch out she didn't see you or else. I remember days of playing with the lego and monopoly, making huts with the beach umbrellas and then sleeping in them for the night. Good memories, how much simpler life was back then.
