I've been at my parents' place going through old memories. Nanny's jewellery, my grandparents' plates, and photos. I have to provide some responses to a journalist, and I was asking my Mum when I first knew I was different to everyone else. I can't remember feeling or looking different, until I got to school. Not so many photos taken in my school years. I just wasn't confident. How things have changed!

And my skin has improved no end. I've gone from sorbolene to vaseline. My face was very dry and sore back then. And I had sparse hair.

I love these photos. I was a happy kid. My parents look so trendy! These photos make me smile. And I still look the same.

My birthday. 8 December 1981.

Camping at Porpunkah, 1982.
 Bright Rodeo, 1982. How cool were my parents?!
Christmas day 1983.
Pie making with Mum. 1984.
Baby. 1984.
Preschool, 1985. The pussy bow blouse and cord pinafore! Fashionable back then.
I've got heaps more to share, so keep an eye out for them :)
