Sharing photos

Today's blog prompt from Shimelle's class was to share an old photo of myself and a current photo of myself and explain what's stayed the same and what's changed. To be honest, I'm not a great fan of photos of myself and, at this stage in time I don't know where photos of me as a child are (we moved house a little while ago and I don't know where I've put them!) so I'll put on the one I do have from about 20 years ago.

This photo was taken, if I remember correctly, the Christmas before Jon and I got married which would make it 1986. It was taken at Jon's sister Penny's house (in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa) where we had a traditional Christmas lunch before going for a swim in the pool!

This photo was taken in April this year (for the Scrap your Day class - which I haven't kept up with and am thinking of starting again this month).

What's stayed the same:

I'm still with Jon (21 years later);

We still enjoy getting together with family;

My love of creating things - photography, scrapbooking, sewing

What's changed: Lots !!

We now live in the UK and not SA;

I have three children;

I'm a stay at home mum;

I've got about 3 stone to lose ;o) ;

I no longer perm my hair;

I now use a computer rather than a typewriter;

Technology - I have an iPod, mobile phone, digital camera & computer;

Our families are spread around the world but we can keep in touch via the internet, blogs, etc.

Another prompt that's making me think and take stock.



  1. Nice pics! I had to giggle at the "no longer perm hair" - that's a good one! Oh what we women do sometimes, lol.
