Blogtober16 #2 Share An Old Photo

2 October 2016

I actually found these photographs about a month ago when I was sorting through an old box of letters and junk that I had kept from school. Over the years I have seen these photos lots of times because they always seem to pop up when I'm having a clear out however I stopped to have a good look at them and I am so shocked how much I look like little J. I always thought he looked like Daddy but there is definitely some of me in there too.

I don't remember this photo being taken although I am 99.9% sure this is Boxing Day. There is obviously christmas cards in the background which does give it away a little but I always got dressed up for Boxing Day and these look like Boxing Day clothes.

When I was little, Christmas Day was our day. My mum, dad and I would stay in all day playing with presents and my mum would make Christmas dinner. On Boxing Day that was the day I would get my best clothes on and go and visit my Nana and Grandad. Boxing Day was like a second Christmas because it was the day you got all your presents from family. I loved going to my Nana's on Boxing Day, I don't remember much but I know when I think of it, it always makes me smile so the memories are there somewhere I just can't access them as I am getting old, haha. 

It's so strange as our Christmas now is completely different to what I was used to. On Christmas Day we do lots of visiting and spend the whole day with family. The boys absolutely love seeing their grandparents on Christmas Day and I can't ever imagine doing anything different.


  1. I always think it's amazing how much things change over the years.
    Like you though, I wouldn't change a thing!

  2. Aww! Lovely photo. It sounds like it holds a lot of memories for you.

  3. Love your photo
    My neices and nephews laugh at my photos -they say I haven't changed much
    Think it's a compliment x

  4. Lovely photo, we used to do the same at Christmas, but our boxing day now is usually just us because we have seen grandparents on Christmas day.


Thanks for your comments. I love reading them :)
