So I was in one of our cupboards this morning and I got distracted, by a big box of memories. From a life before digital cameras, before children, before marriage, just before. I hauled it out and there went my day.
There are the requisite photos of me when I was still a child. I thought some of you would get a kick out of my first ever Halloween costume, seen above.
But most of that box is filled with photographs and slides, taken in my travels, and then when I worked at sea on the cruise ships.
We have now have a scanner that will scan slides and I am intent on going through this box and turning some of these memories into digital memories as well. Today's photos are just what I snapped with my phone.
I think the girls will enjoy a good look through these as well. It has been a long time since this box has seen the light of day. They are the right age to appreciate that their mother had a life before she married and had children.
They might even appreciate that I was really skinny at one point!
