It’s been two years to the day since I set out to bring a little nostalgia into the world.
This Blog was intended to be more than just a record of family life; I wanted to encourage people who fell across it to think long and hard about their memories, and to make a deliberate effort to capture their past and the family stories of which they are custodians, as a legacy for their children.
I have never had plans for world domination in terms of reader numbers or awards (just as well eh?!), but rather a compulsion to lay out my own family and childhood memories, whether that was in the form of laugh-out-loud retrospectives of forgotten decades, tales of relatives who are no longer with us, or by recording the development of my boys from babies to men.
So, here are a selection of the ‘memories of my memories’ (if you get my meaning), from the journey so far.
Discovering the astonishing story of Uncle Joe’s letters from WWII, and serialising them.
Remembering when life was more simple…all shoulder pads and Kajagoogoo…
Capturing the births….
and taking stock of how much those kids have grown…!
Capturing a love story through a family heirloom.
And celebrating the joy of our furry friends. After all, they’re family too!
We’ve had days out…
It’s been a blast. Happy birthday to me!
