Reminiscing

Another secret revealed lol

I think I’ve mentioned it enough times
for all to know I do like warm weather
I don’t do Winter
When the weather cools down I want to hibernate lol
This is my bestest way to pass the time
At the beach doing nothing
Hook Island 2009
For a few years when I was a very little girl  
we lived on the south coast of England
and almost daily endured
the stony pebble beach at Southsea
Mum said I loved it
never wanted to leave
and would be a handful on the way home
Knew what I liked even at that age lol
Southsea Beach 1946
With the winter Olympics on at the moment
I think its a good time to reveal something to you ๐Ÿ™‚
It may come as a surprise if I said
there was one week in early February 1961
(oh dear – thats nearly 50 years ago)
when I had the time of my life
and even enjoyed the cold weather
Doing what you say
Skiing – says I
– yes –
Snow Skiing
We lived in Cyprus at the time
A beautiful island nation in the Mediterranean
well, it was at that time
sadly it has had a very chequered history since then
Dad was serving with the RAF
so thats why we were there
The youth club went to the Troodos Mountains 
 for a few days
And voila
here’s Catherine practising for the down hill event 
Bet you never thought you’d see me frolicing in that cold white stuff lol

  2. We all have those moments in our past we are a little ashamed of when we acted out of out basic character. Few like yourself are willing to expose themselves the way you have ;)After a slow start and some disappointing individual results Canada has finished strong and the atheletes have done themselves proud. I am glads the Aussie cousins are watching and enjoying the Olympics while working on their late season tans.

  3. Sounds like you are a summer girl just like me, I can't believe we live in snowy Scotland, Palm Springs is more my climate. At least we are looking forward to spring now, well longing for it really. Still you have enjoyed the snow at some stage in your varied life, we have black and white proof.

  4. We don't do Winter either. That's why when we can we come over to Australia! I think your photos are great. The one of you sitting on the shingle is just so cute, and I'm in real awe of your skiing skills. Such lovely memories for you. x
