Years Gone By!

Last week my mum and I decided to visit my mums sister, my aunt.  She had just turned 60 a couple of days beforehand and we where very much laden with gifts.  Anyhoo after copious amounts of birthday cake and cups of tea my mum asked to see one of  the old photo albums.  Cue a lot of  laughing and a huge trip down memory lane.
This is what we found in the album:
My brother and I. I'm 2 in this photo. Mum says I was very mean to him, seemingly I was jealous that he was around hahaha!

With my partner in crime, Shep the dog, he wouldn't let anyone near me(even my siblings) he was really protective. We grew up together, he was bought as a puppy 6 months after I was born.

  1. Loved looking at your pics! My mom tells me we also had a dog like your Shep. He once saved me from getting hit by a car when he bit the back of my diaper and wouldn't let me go into the street. He also slept under my crib...good dog!!:=)
    Glad you had such an enjoyable visit with your aunt!
