Oh dear.....apologies for the slackness in my blogging this week. I had good intentions on Monday and Tuesday but I was possessed by the cleaning devil and ended up tidying up our living area at the shop. I must admit I do feel a lot better having a neat lounge room......and not having to step around boxes of fabric and shop stuff.....and also being able to see the pretty runner on the table instead of just knowing that it is under that pile of paperwork that just seemed to get bigger and bigger!
Before I knew it I am back to Thursday and the shop is open once again and it's TBT time again. I thought that today I would pop up a photo of me taken in 1979. It is a photo of me all dressed up ready to go to the Deb Ball to watch my friends make their deb.
Mum gave each of us the choice of whether or not to make our deb. Actually I was given the choice of a new watch or the deb......I took the watch (which I am wearing). I remember going to pick out the fabric for the dress.......I remember Mum making the dress.......I remember putting the dress on and saying that I didn't like it and wasn't going to wear it.......I remember Mum 'crying' and telling me how hard she had work to make the dress for me.......I remember wearing said dress to the Deb ball. I think that I was well and truly out played that night!
