The latest Blog This challenge – History, Your Story, brought back a lot of memories for me. I really wanted to join in but living in a different state to my snap-happy Mother, who unfortunately doesn’t own a scanner, made it difficult for me to get photos as she has plenty!
I did, however, find a photo which has shocked a lot people. I have not changed one single bit since I was 8 years old, give or take a few wrinkles and a change of hair colour!!!
Quote by one of the girls at work: “if you were entered in to a pick the person by their baby photo competition, everyone would know who you were!”.
Looking at that photo of me at 8 years of age takes me back to when I was in Year 3. I went to a small, private co-ed school in “the hills” and I was lucky enough to have the most loved teacher in the school. I was a pretty quiet student but I loved sport and I especially loved art.
Fast forward to today…I can be quiet, when I want to. I still love sport and I am still obsessed with anything arty. I may be taller (and a little wider) but in my Mother’s eyes I am still that front gap-toothed little girl with the long, thick pigtails and the dimples in the cheeks.
By the way, I still have the dimple on the left side!
