I'm terrible at organising old pictures and have 2 boxes full of old pics which I never look at. However the other day I was looking for a photo, I didn't find it, didn't have much time, but started getting sucked into my picture boxes. Every picture tells a story and when you look back at them you might not remember all the detail, but you remember how you felt at that moment, or where you were particularly or who you were with.
So I thought for fun I would share the first few I scanned, all totally random, all with a story!
First up a picture of my lovely husband which was taken around the a very very long time ago, in fact it was my favourite picture of him when I first met him, and it had been taken before then, we've been together for over 20 years now, so he must have been in his early 20s when this was taken, cute huh?!!
Next up a great picture of my mum and her brother, I love this picture, it's so tender I think between her and her brother and they are really not like that in real life, I'm sure they love each other but they never let each other know, silly really. Still I love this pic, mum looks so sweet and my uncle too!
I love this picture of me and Dad. Obviously I know the year, well I assume it's 1967 as I was born end of October 1966 and I'm obviously still a baby, but I think the curtains and wallpaper are a dead giveaway!
This next picture is the only picture you will ever see of me in a dress above the knee! I used to do a lot of Film and TV extra (background) work and this was set in the 60s, how there got me into a 60s dress I'll never know, the coat is mine, just keeping warm on set in between takes! I can't remember the program but it had Ricky Tomlinson in, he was at our table and was as totally hilarious in real life as he seems on TV!
He had us in stitches.
Next one was at a club that Rohan the DJ ran soooo many years ago! It was like a Speakeasy, it wasn't really a proper club it was a house of sorts under the railway arches in Camden. You brought your own drinks and it used to go on all night, it was like going to a speakeasy, there was always a good deal of alcohol consumed - as you can tell by this pic, there were no seats, which is why I'm on the floor, it was always a bit hazy cos it was so bloody hot in there, and I do remember when you walked down the stairs you could see people sitting on the loo, yep a real put together event. I do remember one night standing in the alley cooling off as it was so hot, looking up at the stars and thinking how great life was!!
And last but not least, us on tour in Switzerland after a gig, with a couple of deps, one my very good friend Bloater! We played this club quite often, and I do remember us getting rather drunk going back to the hotel and then singing Dion songs at about 5am in the room. I would not have been impressed if I'd been trying to sleep in another room, but we had fun, whoops!
So there you go, some random photos and as I said a story behind every one!
