Today is my birthday, though I'm thinking I should probably just ignore them from now on! They come around far too quickly these days...I'm still trying to work out where the last 20 years went. It's school holidays and the munchkins are staying with their grandparents down south for a few days, so it's a quiet little celebration at home just me and Beloved (who is cooking dinner and has the wine chilling as I speak). I did manage to make an effort and polish myself up a bit to take a photo, as I don't seem to have very many of me at all. So here I am, in the garden wearing my new colours (the purples and aquas seem to have lost their appeal, and I want earthy, foresty colours now). And of course, my new shoes!
Just for a bit of fun, here's a photo from a VERY long time ago...25 years ago in fact. Taken by my Beloved (who was just a baby of 19 back then) at Perth Technical College where we both studied Graphic Design (and where we met in fact!). It's rather dodgy because it's blown up from a proof sheet (does anyone remember those?!), and I'm wearing my 'please DON'T take my photo' face (which probably explains why there are so few photos of me!) These were my absolute favourite jeans at the time, they'd been through several incarnations of dye, re-dye, bleach by the time this pic was taken. Ahhhhh, memories!
