flashback friday


group

my Nana and Pa, in their backyard, with my brother and two of my beloved cousins. Judging by the age of the baby, it must be c.1977 - she's just turned 30!

That's me, front and centre, in a jumpsuit I remember I loved! It was made of a soft Indian cotton, and I remember feeling pretty...



My brother and I were lucky growing up - our cousins were almost weekly fixtures in our lives, and to this day we remain close. There was 3 more cousins that arrived after this - 3 beautiful baby girls for me to play little mummy to at family do's! We spent most summers all together at my aunt's beach house, playing carefree in the sun and sand.

My Nana and Pa were two of the most loving grandparents a child could ever want. You were never left in doubt that you were loved in their presence. I was very blessed.
