Suddenly 30

So there I am, back in my old bedroom and I wake up from a weird dream involving Matt Smith as Doctor Who, and whom I’m REALLY happy to see. Which was really weird, because I had been watching ‘Silence with the Library’ which is a David Tennant…and I’m going off tangent…

It was 5:45am and I couldn’t sleep, so I started rummaging through the wardrobe, and dug up an old box of photos. They’re vaguely arranged by chronological order, depending on where we used to live. With Dad being a teacher in the Education Department, we would move every time Dad got a promotion.

I saw photos from milestones such as weddings, baptisms, first holy communions and confirmations. New school photos (and there were a few new schools for me!), old friends and old boyfriends, Christmases past, 21st parties, all of us looking younger, fuller faced and with less or more hair. I’ve grabbed a few to get them scanned and will post them up soon.

Trips down memory lane will often put you into a reflective mood and in tribute to the many who have gone before me, here are 30 things I did apart from #blogeverydayofjune
