IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!
Ooh, not another year older!
Oh well I can't do anything about it so I might as well enjoy it!
That's me on the left wearing a white top and a patchwork skirt, it looks like I was about to blow out the candles. You can guess when this picture was taken, look at the wallpaper and tablecloth...all very 70s, lots of brown and purple!
Dressed as Marie-Antoinette at a fancy dress party around the mid 1970s (France). My Aunt Suzy made the dress. I was so pleased with it. I still have it as well as the wig!
I would have been 15 or 16 years old and living in Affpuddle, Dorset. The grey cat next to me was called Misty. He was a wonderful cat and was very dear to me.
Aged 18 years old (Affpuddle Dorset) and dressed to go to an interview, I think.
and 23 years later... (most recent picture of me, taken in Devon in May 2010)
Yes you've done your sums right, I am 44 years old today!
Busy weekend ahead! Today: My birthday, a family wedding (one of Alan's cousins), drama & dancing practice for Miss P and on Sunday: We will be watching Miss P performing in a show organized by her drama school.
I wanted to give you a laugh with some of the bad hair days I had over the years. Unfortunately, the box with those photos is not easily accessible in the loft so I will dig them out some other time. My worst hair days were in the mid to late 1980s...and perhaps one or two in the 90s.
Whatever your plans are this weekend, may you have a good one!
I'll leave you with this photo of me on my 1st birthday (Love the hat...)
