How NOT to do life (and other helpful household tips)



So yeah. That’s me. Looking up in disbelief at that fat little bastard on his cloud, who had already begun his series of unfortunate events (yes, I know, someone already claimed that description, but believe me, there are no lemons or snickets included in this narrative).

I am actually quite impressed how daintily I am perched on that running board, since dainty is not a word that has EVER been used in the same sentence as my name. At best, lively. At times, unique. Most often, challenging. (Those shoes though!! Clarks or Startrite, love them!)

I recently found a whole FACTORY of photographs of me as a child. My father, for all his foibles, loved a pic, and involved me in the secret arts of developing them, in a dark room at Bristol University. And that unleashed a whole new wave of memories, so I decided I would share them with you all.

And chart my life, properly.

Which won’t be easy.

But mostly, Matthew, it will be fun.

I will leave you with one more photo. Me before me. I love this picture, it is such a snapshot of that time. My mother is the beautiful lady reclined in the background, and I am the bump therein.

Gypsy Lane

Oh!!!! The guy on the right is my Uncle Dave, and he is not naked!! More of that next time.

  1. Lovely to see you back ๐Ÿ™‚ Arent old photos so ineresting. If you love them they make you feel all gooey and nostalgic, if you don’t like them you can sigh happily that that period of time is finished – and burn them if they are truly a crime to humanity (orange hair – what was I thinking?!!!).
    Love little you – she already had the ahir thing happening ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Fun is definitely what we all need in our lives. I have sometimes added green hair chalk (mixed with blue and purple and red) to my silver. Makes for some interesting comments at work ๐Ÿ™‚
        I am sure that you carried off green with witchiness resplendent elegance.
