This is...me pre-1985


This week, as part of the 'This is...' meme, Angela from Three Buttons suggested we also post a pic of ourselves pre-1985. So here's mine. This was taken in 1975, during the very long period in which I was in plaster for bilateral hip dysplasia (the plaster was from my ankles up to my armpits!!!). As I was in it for so long, Dad made me a special skateboard-type thing that I could lie upon and get myself around with by pushing with my arms. I think this photo was taken in my Grandma's yard. I remember she had a huge rose garden with paths running through it.

Anyway, I might have to wait until tomorrow to do the second half of the This is meme (my favourite shoes!!!) as Kate is asleep in my bedroom where my shoes are, and when she wakes up we are scooting off to my mum's house.

See you tomorrow!

That's such a cute photo....and it's quite strange seeing a luscious green lawn....nobody has one of those anymore.

Goodness, hip dysplasia! Good on you though, you look so happy, like you weren't up to your pits in plaster!
