Flashback festivities: 1977

Every girl likes a new frock and a present - and a big sister to show her how it's done!

(Socks and sandals.... ARgghh.)

(Mom, stop giggling!)

Socks and sandals - I remember them well. My sister and I were also dressed in matching (but slightly colour varied) dresses for all manner of occassions. On at least one occassion I remember my poor brother being dressed in trousers that matched our frocks!!

Great photo!

Oh, yes, I sympathise with Hoppo - those dresses were polyester belnd of some sort, and they came out for every birthday party we went to. I remember them with a sort of fond terror....
Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Yep, my Mom says that it was all my fault for my feet growing so fast.
And now I know where my op-shopping genes come from: the larger orange dress my sis is wearing was second-hand shopped. Well done that Mom!
