A day off work and it pours down!

Not that I minded, it gave me the perfect opportunity to start something I’ve been planning for weeks.

Blow the dust off my projector, bring in all my old 35mm slides and make way for a bucket load of nostalgia.

Sam looks so cute, Roz looks lovely, and Joe makes friends with our (then) new pet rabbit.

I realise a photo like this throws up all sorts of questions.

Did we really have that awful carpet?

Yes we did, it was in the house when we moved in and we couldn’t afford a new one.

Did we choose the cover on our bed settee?

Nope, the whole thing came from Mum, and it was jolly comfortable as a settee and single bed.

And the rabbit?

Yes we really did let him in the house most evenings, but after a few short weeks Brer Fox broke into his hutch, and that was the end of him.

I was too upset to ever have a pet again.

The boys got over it remarkably quickly.

  1. Nice to see this Stephen – thank you for sharing. Perhaps we can see more in our upcoming visit?

  2. I’m in the process of cleaning out cupboards which have had more and more and more stuffed into them for 16 years. On the top shelf of the hallway cupboards are all my old slides, including all the baby photos. I doubt if the old projector still works, but it is there too.
    So maybe, in 2-3 weeks time . . .

  3. Glad to meet your boys 🙂
