I always found this photo incredibly embarrassing, well who wouldn’t really! I was a gawky 12 year old on holiday with my mum when caught by one of the campsite photographers. I guess I’m grateful the photo is in black and white. The skirt was one my mum had made, cut down from a longer dress and it really didn’t match my cardigan.
It was 1977 and we were on the Isle of Wight, the first and only time I’ve been there. I must go back some day, it’s been so long.
I chose this photo because it would have been my mum’s birthday this week, she would have been 86 but she passed away 8 years ago so never even made it to 80.
