Remember Mekons?


Oh I know showing baby photos is ever so twee but I had a trip down memory lane when I went to my parents for New Year. Well, to be honest it was spend my time in the attic looking through old boxes or spend time with them taking about funerals and hip replacements. Memory lane it was then.

I know this may not be the photo of me in uniform that some of you pervs were hoping for (At least I hope not) but I think it has a certain charm to it. But that is me in official British Army baby clothes on a base in Germany in the 70's . Not that the decade isn't obvious from the curtains or bib of course!

However the curtains and bib are FAR less embarrassing than the photo below which shows one of my many hair styling mistakes, this one from the mid nineties...

Yes indeed that is BIG hair there ladies and gentlemen! It is a shame I have no photographs from the days I sported a side spike. I do feel the need to point out that the wallpaper behind me in it's many and varied styles is not in my parents house but at a wedding reception. The stuff on my parents walls is MUCH worse....

Very attractive! I be my baby photos beat yours for 70s naffness though!

Also, thought you were going to let me know when you were at the parents so we could meet? I have to confess to having lost your mobile number, so perhaps you need to txt it to me then I may be able to keep in touch better, lol!
