In the good old days when I was growing up, my father used to record memories in black and white photographs and 8 mm film. When my girls were growing up we recorded them on hand held video cams with small cassettes. Several years ago I changed all these to a video cassette format and last month I got them all converted to DVDs. I played them on the DVD to check out what they were all about and was totally depressed.
Half the people in the film were either dead or dying and the rest of us just looked younger and better.
So the bottom line is
Don’t revisit the past even in a photograph.


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!
