The image to the left was taken in 1945. In it my maternal grandmother, now dead, is holding my mother, who was born three days before VJ Day and christened Victoria.

Lil’sis & I are children of the seventies and I love these photographs. The first is me & Muv in the driveway of the house in which I grew up in Smarden, Kent.

(I spent my entire childhood reading books way too old for me, & I distinctly remember having a thing about curtseying for a while. I was quite odd.)

This is Muv & lil’sis outside our house on Elfindale Road in Dulwich, London, just before we moved to Kent.

What a lovely photograph. I love how children are so unselfconscious about posing for pictures- something that vanishes as soon as puberty hits.
Since you showed us what you look like, I can’t help thinking that you (grown-up) do look a lot like your mum, only blonde.
