Just going through old photos.... What a mess I was!! .... I'm a girl just to clarify lol

Haha. You certainly needed to clarify your gender 😜

Cute though!

I wish I could show you one I have of DC1, I call it the Smug Photo. When I look at it I hear Kryton (Red Dwarf) cry Smeeeeg! I keep it in the Blackmail Album.

It's just brought back a memory of my friend telling me that her boyfriend saw a school photo of her on the wall at her mum's and asked if it was her brother? She said yes grin

You were a Poppet! I had a similar hair do!

DamsonInDistress Fri 22-Jan-16 17:23:20

I would have totally said you were a boy blush

That is pretty bad, but I see your crappy school photo and raise you this!

Elledouble Fri 22-Jan-16 17:25:11

Oh bless you! I bet your folks still loved you though wink

Years ago my younger DS had school photo taken and the company gave us the prints for free
They were so bad
My daughter and I still cry with laughter when we think about them
DS found out the photos when he came back at Christmas and he destroyed them!!!!

Before I had braces my teeth were quite squint so my mum had said to smile without showing too much of them. I clearly didn't pull it off haha X

hilbil21 Fri 22-Jan-16 17:28:28

Liinyo I don't think yours is too bad!

Both those pictures show lovely little girls with intelligent eyes and some slight trepidation about growing up in a scarey world. Liinyo you look sweetly optimistic and hill you look a little more world wise and a weeny bit cynical. Fabulous pictures.

Hester that's lovely smile

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 22-Jan-16 17:35:34

Oh OP I love it. So bad but so cute.

Is that a mum haircut? I had similar.

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 22-Jan-16 17:36:27

liinyo I'm shore East London is full of hipsters who'd love to look just like that!

CaptainCrunch Fri 22-Jan-16 17:37:51

I think you look gorgeous.

seagreengirl Fri 22-Jan-16 17:38:35

You're both very sweet. Mine were awful , the worst thing being our dreadful home haircuts. We actually had our hair cut at the hairdressers if I remember rightly fifty years ago, but my mum couldn't stop trimming bits off at home, my fringe often ended up about an inch long!

I've got a cracker somewhere aged about 12. I had thick NHS specs, one of those early-90s wide headbands and I'm obviously trying to surprise a fit of the giggles because my smile is like this:

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Fri 22-Jan-16 17:39:40

Aww. So cute. There's no way I'm putting a school picture up though. I look awful on them. I know everyone says that but I really do.

StealthPolarBear Fri 22-Jan-16 17:40:17

Test

Ah not working. If anyone can see my profile there's a picture of ds's bounty picture. He's a gorgeous boy and was a gorgeous baby. In the bounty pic he looks like an angry alien frog species

Oh I love old school photos! Such hope, such optimism....such wonky fringes! Don't feel bad, in one of mine I look like a character from The Dark Crystal (remember that film!). I looked like some kind of pointy little elf...and I'm ginger! No way I'm posting that one up here x

hilbil21 Fri 22-Jan-16 17:43:24

I can't remember if my mum cut it it certainly looks like it lol x

pictish Fri 22-Jan-16 17:45:12

That's definitely a mum cut.
You are very sweet btw. x
