Hello AGAIN ladies...
I feel quite guilty doing YET another post soo soon after yesterdays & the day before..!!
I have literally gone overboard re posting..
BUT whilst still cleaning up my "ebay" room .. per yesterdays post..
LOOK what I found hidden in the back of my hutch!!
THREE of my OLD school PROJECT books dating back to when i was in grade 2...(i skipped prep...so i would have been about 6 yo...soo 1963)..
PLUS there is one from 1968..BIG girl then!!
fascinating reading...the "whispering T jet"...Japanese olympic games (byron would love that one)..the australian way of life!!
PLUS my one & only swimming certificate...THE HERALD..I swam 25 yards in 1968!!! and guess which stroke that was???
SOOTY would be PROUD of me...YES and I kid you not...it was DOG PADDLE!!!
these were very SIMPLISTIC yet lovely days as a child...OBVIOUSLY!!!
the old school folder...covered in brown paper...with a cut out of something or other glued to the front..
MY dad wrote my NAME in lovely clear print..with my grade next to it..AND OF course UNDERLINED...
we would cut out pictures from mags/newspapers relevant to what we were writing about...and then "CLAG" them fast...
quite primitive in todays technology...(back then..no internet..no computers..no mobile phones...black white tv with 4 channels which turned off at midnight...etc etc..)..
SIMPLE BUT JUST SOOO MEMORABLE as a little girl growing up..
Just thought you YOUNGER lovely blogging ladies would laugh at "THE OLD" times...
AND you other lovely ladies..."MORE MY AGE" .. cough cough...would reminisce.
PROMISE..no more blogs for a few days..OR until I unearth another treasure!!
ps...OMG...just went to edit this post & guess what??? it is my 100th!!! the way things are going i shall have 200 up in no time...
(better get onto the giveaway thingey re 100 posts)...
