Back in my first blog challenge I made a most about my childhood toys (major nostalgia) and I thought that was similar to the prompt for this week’s blog challenge. So this time I thought I’d go more in depth to my childhood and fish out a bunch of photos and tell the stories behind some of them!
So, welcome to my childhood.
Note: obviously I don’t remember as I was too young to, but they’re stories that my mum likes to tell everyone, so I thought I’d include them.
When I was 3 I burnt my hand on a soldering iron.
I wasn’t the smartest child. I couldn’t find the picture I was looking for but basically, my hand was wrapped in bandages and I had the biggest grin on my face.
This is a soldering iron for anyone who doesn’t know
My parents met via a magazine
This one really isn’t a memory about me, but my parents met via a section in a magazine called That’s Life and in this photo I’m “holding” a That’s Life magazine so I thought I’d include it.
First Time Flying
Speaking of the above magazine, my mum won a trip to Sydney once (I’m pretty sure it was bc of the magazine as they have puzzles where you can win prizes, but I’m not 100% sure). Anyways, here are two photos my mum (or nan) took of me when we were in Sydney.
It’s the only time I’ve ever been on a plane. My mum said I slept the whole way (which is only about an hour and a half, but still).
My mum said that when I was little I would always try and “escape” my cot. At first I didn’t believe her but then she showed me this photo. She said I got tired of trying to get out so I feel asleep like this.
Mowing The Lawn
My Pop is a big fan of cars and repairing all types of vehicles (he’s a mechanic). Even when he’s not working he’s always working on repairing heaps of things. One of which was a ride on lawn mower. When he finished repairing it and it worked again he took me for ride on it. My mum took this picture of me on it!
When I was little my mum said that I used to eat everything, and I mean everything. She said I ate brown paint once (my mum does painting as a hobby). She got this picture of me after I had been chewing on a blue pen or marker of some sort.
Here’s a few other photos bc why not!
What’s a memory from your childhood?
