meer, your style of family photos and mine are so similar, that we must have been born around the same era!

Aww you were a sweet baby Meers. You know I recognise that shawl, it's the same as my christening shawl, which I still have. :)

Lovely Batty, I had those sandals too, the thing which I hated about them was if you trod on dogs poo, you couldn't just scrape it off because of the type of sole on them. I also wore a smock over my dress to keep it clean. :lol:

Batty, I was born in Nov 1956. That would probably explain it!

Did you have the gloves with the idiot-string as well? :lol:

I can remember the bright red colour of them! We never trod in dog poo, though, but we did learn not to jump in puddles! :lol:

My mum wouldn't let us have idiot string 'cos she said she could always knit us a pair of mittins in an evening if we lost one/them, and sides, bullies would pull them through your coat just to annoy you! I remember wearing a balaclava once! :D

We never trod in dog poo either, although there was far more of it about then! It seemed so anyway.

Jumping in puddles was only allowed if accompanied by an aunt/uncle! :D

Oooh, and my Aunt Greta always knitted out school jumpers/cardies and any knitted wear as required.

We'd have to wear the same school shirts/blouses until the collar was in need of a wash. THEN it got changed.

We was poor but happy! Happy Days!

It's the way your toes are curling up in that 'kiss' picture that I noticed. :lol:
