    I think they were pre war, or 50's at best. We were at my nans along with three of my cousins and they got dragged out of a drawer.

     50s in my case.

    Based in Sussex, I garden to encourage as many birds to my garden as possible.
  • Where was that fidget? That turtle has found the perfect spot! 

    I love a good dive. My favourite places so far are the Red Sea just off the tip of the Sinai, and off the Big Island of Hawaii (mostly the west side)

    Cocos (keeling) island. Indian Ocean. A dive site called the cabbage patch. acres of cabbage coral, the odd barrel sponge and a turtle or two.

    Well my mum was one of seven sisters and I had eighteen cousins, it all got a bit busy. At christmas, I'm surprised that someone wasn't sleeping in the shed.imageimage

    That photo was the summer holidays, when we also got to congregate at my nans.

    It really was a different world back then.  Simpler, safer....for kids at least.

    I think that was quite common - using a drawer. Certainly for babies. Cheaper than a cot! People today are very spoiled, but when that idea of having so much 'stuff' is passed off as the norm, it's inevitable. My two girls wore their cousins' baby and toddler clothes. Some of it was over twenty years old. I don't think they've been scarred for life....image

    I'd rather economise at that stage and be able to spend a little more on them when they're older - that's when they really cost money!

    I had a cozzie like that when I was little too fidget. I'm sure there are photos but I think my sister has most of them. Always love your diving pix - have you any more trips planned?

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Well I have, but hubby wants to wait a bit before booking. I want to go to the straights of Lembeh, the other side of North Sulawesi,that we went to a couple of years ago. My video broke on the first day, so I didn't get to film the blue ringed octopus, or the turtle eating the jellyfish, or the mating cuttlefish. I think that sort of thing is better on video than photo. And then of course neither of us have seen a mimic octopus yet. My video camcorder has been fixed now. So many things to see, so little time....
