~ Flashback Me ~


Yep, this is me, aged 5. My first school photo. I dug it up last week and sat down with it for awhile. I had not seen it nor remembered it for many many years. It is funny how you remember yourself when you look at childhood photo's. All I can remember is lots of laughing, singing, make believe and dressing up! And my mum used to make me wear rags in my hair to bed at night so I would wake up looking like this! OMG.

  23. Do you often think about what you would say to your 5 year old self? The wearing of rags to bed looks worth the cute look.
