When I was 18 months old my family moved to Australia. There was me, Mum and Dad, Aunty Ann and Uncle Terry and my cousins Geraldine and Tina. My cousins were my best friends, and we were soon joined by a baby brother for me and two sisters for them. I've got loads of sunny, happy memories from then......
This was taken March 1970. How can I be so accurate? Because my Aunty was looking after me (aged 2) while my Mum was in hospital giving birth to my little brother! That's me in the middle between my cousins Geraldine and Tina.... Dad Holding me in front of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! I Can't tell you how many car museums we went to as kids, but it must be in the millions! And weirdly, there is a car rally that drives through the town where I live now every September, and Chitty is one of them! Playing with the old car at the bottom of the garden, Geraldine and Tina my partners in crime again!
A few years later, with my cousins and brother (look closely, we're holding hands! aaah!)
And finally my class photo from 1974, it must have been taken just before we came back to England, I can remember going to buy new dresses especially to wear on the aeroplane. Have you worked out which is me?(Front row, 2nd from left). I haven't been back to Australia since then, but it's definitely on my to-do list!

Right It's back to the machine for me, gota go and sew!!
And I'm copying Cloudcakes a bit here but you can't go wrong with a bit of Wini Aldrich and I think this is possibly the oldest book I own, I've had it since college. ( No I'm lying, it says 1991 inside, have no idea why I bought it then and not at college!!)
Thanks to Daisy in LaLaLand for this weeks theme!
