And yes the piece de resistance yet again….. and if ANYONE dares to comment about the slightly ‘awkward’ boy hairstyle, with the button up cardi and skirt …look out! 🙂 🙂 They were obviously keen on taking photos in front of foliage it seems…but look no crossed legs 🙂
And a time when it was ok for a ‘little’ girl who hadn’t yet developed boobies to be topless in public – come to think of it they haven’t grown much since then either! I do have two eyes I just think the sun was too bright that day and yes still brandishing the same lame boy haircut it seems.
Eldest Bro ‘P’ in the middle and younger Bro also ‘P’ at the end R.I.P little bro… who passed away 9/01/2004 in India.
As you can see (possibly) I take after dad with the darker skin and my brothers took after mum with their ‘English’ complexion. I was/am the sun lover whereas they hated it. I wish I could remember those times, my memory is so scant from my childhood. I wish I could take my self back and know who I was then, what I felt like, what made me happy, what made me sad, but alas I can’t. Ahhhh good times though it seems.
Thank you Beck 🙂
