Flashback Friday (on a Thursday)

(Click the pic to see it's full sized glory!)
I know there is/was a Flashback Friday meme going around, so I decided that I'd finally join in for a few weeks. The reason I hadn't joined in until now was because being only 21 and born in 1987, I didn't exactly have any photo that were circa 70's/early 80's that would allow me to particpate!

A couple of days ago I was looking at all these awesome photos I have of my Mum around my room from her 20's and I had a lightbulb moment, I could use them! I absolutely love these photos of my mum, she was stunning back in the day (not to say she isn't now..) with her long brown hair and legs that seemed to go on fuh-ev-ah. Seems I didn't inherit those genes, grr. Although she attributes her teeny tiny 20's body to the fact that her Mum was a terrible cook! And let's face it, home cooking has gone up a few notches since then, in my house it has anyway!

I have about 5 or 6 pictures that I'm going to share with you over the next few weeks, and you'll probably notice that we have exactly the same face pretty much, closest I'll ever get to know what a twin of me would look like. I hope you enjoy these pics, (and I hope Mum doesn't mind me putting them up here!) because I seriously love them and how hippy/retro/STUNNING my old ma looks in them.

The above pic is of my Mum (standing, check out those legs!), my aunty (sitting) and one of my cousins (I assume.. most of them are at least 10 years older than me).

Great pic of your mom. I noticed your goodreads widget - we have read a lot of the same books. I have been trying to read Atonement since March, I am seriously struggling!
