Baby, it's cold outside (shamelessly stolen from AC)

Well, AC used a slightly different title, but since my home is nice and warm and I have a full head of hair (although I have been told I have my father's hair, which is worrying, since he hasn't got all that much left) and it's very cold outside (Breathe!), I thought I would show you some lovely photos of me. In a bathing suit. To show that it could be done. At some point. Waaaay in the past...

Right, not the most flattering of photos of myself and I look decidedly white, but I promised bathing suit in summer so you're getting bathing suit in summer! Taken in the summer of 1994 while living in England (hence the milkbottle legs probably).

What can I say? I was in a funny mood! Malta 1999. Red hair in pig tails in a knot, snorkel, awful bathing suit and a gorgeous lagoon. Nothing more to ask for...

Thin, tanned and did I mention thin? This was taken at the end of the summer in Club Med Kamarina in 1991. And if you're wondering about the hands holding my knees: I was on top of a pyramid!

And the photo at the top was taken in 1987, while on holiday somewhere in Austria or Germany I guess. Not quite sure. It might have been somewhere else. No it can't. It was either Austria or Germany. Yes.


  1. I am, once again, back in my hoodie as I wait for the place to heat back up this morning.

    PS: I was also once thin.

  2. I was thin once, too, but the photos to prove it are all "somewhere" and in this house, that could be anywhere.
    You looked great on top of that pyramid.
    Fun photos.
    I used "Baby it's cold outside" as my Thursday theme song this week. I think. The sort of lyric everyone my age (and some your age) will think of at this time of year.

  3. Thank you for sharing those cute pictures. I remember being thin!!

  4. You're very brave to post all these! No-one's going to see my bikini ones from way back! Like the other commenters, I remember being thin once (for a little while!) but even
    then I wasn't as pretty as you in your frillies.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
