I love this photo that was included in a slideshow at the birthday celebrations.  The couple on the right are Nana Rose and her husband, Pa Harry, and I think she looks like she has always had the same attitude about life, she will never let anything bother her.

As a follower of The Sartorialist I have been admiring all the vintage photos that have recently been posted, and on the weekend had a ball digging through old photo albums at my Nana Bunty’s place.

I love how happy Nana Bunty and Pa look in this photo, which was taken on New Years Eve, apparently sometime in the 60s. Nana said that she remembers that she was sick, but it definitely doesn’t show.

Another favourite of mine is this one of my Pa, uncle Keith and one of their friends, all of whom are no longer with us. Nana said that this was on a camping trip when they were very young, and when the guys went for a swim they took their pants off and held them above the water for the girls to see. She also told me that her father came out to the campsite to check that they hadn’t been sleeping in the same tent. How times have changed!

Had a fantastic time in Melbourne with my wonderful yet crazy family, and most special of them all, Nana Rose.
