In the lead up to my thirtieth, I’ve been doing lots of looking at old photos. I thought I’d share a few (in no particular order!). Hope they raise a smile or two!
2003, graduation day. I got my MA (Hons) and mum, dad and Sian came down to Aberdeen to share the day. Such sweet memories – some of my very favourite pictures of Sian and I were taken then :).
Christmas dance in 1998, when I was just eighteen. Joining a new school at 16 was a real challenge, but I’ve never regretted the chance I took. I made some wonderful friends at Forres and I’m so glad I got to know Sian and Peter properly after 5 years of being away for most of the year!
First day of school, 1985! I was so excited for school! I’ve always loved to read and learn and get my geek on, so I was suited and booted and ready to head out the door. Those red shoes are a bit of a family legend. The school said we could wear black, blue, or red shoes. Guess who dragged her poor mummy through a tonne of show shops looking for an oh so rare red pair? Mme Muir (the artists formerly known as Mlle Wilson!), are you proud?
1987 – the year I forgot how to smile. For serious, in all the pictures from this time I look very very serious. The phase didn’t last!
2007, my first car! I loved Jessika to pieces…..and I still miss driving. If and when I quit London I am so ready for some new wheels!
1991, Girl Guides. Weren’t the old style uniforms *cute* (bwahahahahaha, evil laughter).
At my parents’ wedding, 1984. Where I first caught the bridesmaiding bug!
2009, at Mme Muir’s 30th. Fantastic party – I’m so glad she and Al and Steph will be heading down for my birthday next month!
Housewarming picnic, 2009. My first batch of entertaining in town. I have such a lovely group of friends here….I’m a very lucky girl!
