Facebook , at the moment is asking people to post old photos of themselves
So why doesn't blogger do the same?

  11. You and Janet were daring children. Was this a special day like the first day of school or some other significant event? How old were you? Very sweet!

  12. What skinny wee things you were; now I shall forever see you as a skinny little fellow with big eyes and a bright smile.

    (I found another to put up on FB, my great grandmother and I back when my age was still counted in months. What an ugly little chubwat I was, lol!)

  20. What cuties!! Who knew when this was taken that you'd live with "20 individual pet feet, in a rain sodden village in a home that could spring out of the pages of Homes and Gardens" and married to a handsome Professor! :-)!!

  22. . . . . . you're both wearing Clarks 'Joyance' crepe-soled T-bar sandals aren't you? All English kids wore them from 1933-1972 - remember how comfortable they were? I loved them, and yes my brother wore them too!

    1. Re: what went wrong - time, gravity, and a few Scotch Eggs perhaps?

      But some things may be imutalbe. Looks like you can still see the warm eyes and sweet smile in the wedding day photo.

  28. Just the words "Janet and John" remind me of Terry Wogan creasing up with laughter on Radio 2.

  29. Reminds me of a quaint old barometer my grandmother had, so probably dating back to the 1920s or 30s, maybe even earlier. When fine weather was forecast an innocently smiling tiny girl would come out of a little door. When otherwise, a little boy with mischievous naughty grin appear out of another. All very un-PC for these days, of course. (Not that there was then the slightest hint of the 'Damien' about the infant you!).

  31. I think you look too good to be true (obviously been all downhill since then). I shall root out an old photograph of myself later.

  34. Awww that is really cute.
    I won't be posting a photo as my mother has all of the old family pictures. Even my kids haven't seen a photo of me when I was little.

    I'll have to dig one of mine out and shock everyone!!

  36. Lovely photo! You both look very proud there. What were the colours of your uniforms? Greetings Maria x

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a pair of cuties you both were, a fab idea I must dig out an old photo x

    ReplyDelete
  38. So, obviously, you've always been adorable (and it's genetic). Either that or your simply basking in the glow of Janet.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Fabulous photo! I love the shoes - were they Clarks Tuffs by any chance?

    ReplyDelete

  46. None of us will look as cute as that! No fair!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. okay...cute beyond posing! Genuine cuteness...acute cuteness even - here's the question - It's obvious that Janet was looking at the camera/photographer - who/what were YOU looking at? You were happy about it, maybe even happier than Janet - who looks a bit agreeably tentative. (love those shoes - I remember a pair like that in red)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Cute! You remind me of Christopher Robin! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. You haven't changed a bit ;)
