Throwback Thursday #53 – It’s A Formal Affair.

It’s time for Throwback Thursday again , Lauren and Maggie’s brainchild . This week it’s Lauren’s turn and she said. “While most of us grew up with school clothes and play clothes, there were occasionally those special clothes, aka glad rags. Clothes can bring up strong memories and emotions.”

Strangly I don’t remember much about dressing up for special occasions….I know I was supposed to have been bridesmaid for my eldest sister.. unfortunately I had scarlett fever and was in bed on the day and missed my bridesmaid’s debute.

I always had a new out fit for Christmas, Easter and my birthday often made by my sister Frankie. She was always an accomplished needlewoman and had an eye for style. Below one of my clever sister’s creations, a grey A line dress with bell sleeves, a red tartan bib and red piped around the bell sleeves. I was nine or ten.

I don’t remember funerals when I was younger but I must of attended a few. I sure mum would of had us all looking smart. We definitely would of all had a bath and had our hair washed the night before.

I have been a bridesmade many times in the family…all shades of pastel which never suited me! The dresses were usually satin .

The above photos are just two that I own there were at least another four but I don’t have them! The colour photo was Nov 1966 I was thirteen , black and white one was 1969 the dresses and head scafs were lilac edged with white lace, I was the one in the middle 💜💜 they all involved a trip to the hairdresser’s!

We didn’t have proms in my day and anyway I left school at fifteen and went into an apprenticeship as a window dresser, following Frankie into the fashion trade, she was a designer. But I do have a picture of me at about sixteen at the first party I went to with hubby. It was a long pasely print, high neck , rouched bodice legomtton sleeves and it was pink and blue , I loved that dress. The dog on my lap was my soon to be sister in law’s mother’s dog!

I did my own hair and make up and I was pleased with the outcome 🤣🤣…. actually what do I look like??

Well that all for now folks .

This is part of Lauren and Maggie’s Throwback Thursday.

Throwback Thursday #52 – Transitions and Modifications

Welcome to Throwback Thursday the brainchild of Lauren and Maggie. This week it’s Maggie’s turn and she said : “Here we are again, taking a trip back in time. This week might take a little memory work to recall a few things, but it should be fun. Part of growing up is finding you own way of self expression. This comes about in many ways so think back. Are you ready? If you care to join us, it’s easy.”

This week’s prompt is: Transitions and Modifications

Think about your first haircut. Were you the kid that cut your own hair? Did you go to a salon or did your parents cut your hair? Did your parents save a lock of your hair?

Right…. Mum was a hairdresser before she married dad she actually had her own salon in Oxford. Like most little girls in those days I had long hair and every night mum would tie it in rags so as to produce long thick ringlets. The trouble was it was a very uncomfortable process and I hated it!
As I got older mum would always cut my hair as she had everyone else in the family. She even did my first perm …. A disaster, I got really teased about that. When I was about thirteen I got my first professional cut at a salon I had a Cilla Black cut! Not unlike the style I have now. In between I have had all sorts and colours!

How about shaving? Fathers often teach their sons to shave. Most girls I know, decided for themselves when to shave their legs and their underarms. Some cultures do not shave at all.

My sister’s gave me tips on when and how to shave , though we also used to use Immac Cream which is now called Veet Cream a lot safer than a razor .

Did you alter your clothes? Cut jeans into cut-offs? Cut the sleeves off t-shirts? Wear graphic tees? Tie-dyes? Sew patches on your jeans?

I used to buy Jeans then sit in the bath until they shrank to my size. I did a lot of tie-dyed, cut off T-shirts and jeans too.

Was there a time you remember challenging the authority in your household. Do you remember the first time you found your voice?

No not really….I can remember arguments with mum …. But never with Dad . I might of muttered behind his back but never to his face.

What about piercings? Girls getting their ears pierced was a rite of passage for girls. Then boys started getting one ear pierced. As time passed, piercings became more mainstream and accepted.

I never had piercings even to this day I have no piercings.

Did you walk on the wild side? Smoking? Drinking? Did your parents know?

Yes I tried both but I was married by seventeen.
At first I didn’t tell my parents but as I got older they knew. I stopped smoking in my late thirties and never looked back.

What about tattoos? Did you get a tattoo while still living at home? Did your parents approve?

Never wanted a tattoo I don’t think any of my brothers or sisters had them either. Two of my son’s have them .

What about language? Was swearing allowed in your family? Did you use the same language around your friends as you did at home with your family?

We were not allowed to swear or blasphem. We also had to speak correctly. Again I found people would take against me if I spoke correctly and they would call me posh . Yes I did speak differently with friends and school to when I was at home.

Think back to high school. Girls, did you iron your hair? Did you color your hair? (using Sun-in counts!) Guys, did you grow a beard or moustache? Did you grow your hair long? Feel free to share a photo of yourself back in the day.

I was definitely au natural at school, we were taught by nuns!!

Many people think our authentic self is the person we were as young children. Are you still inherently the same person you were as a child or have you changed your personality and demeanor along the way?

I am what I am always was and always will be. What you see is what you get …. perhaps a little wiser and definitely a lot older. Now I colour my hair and my nails Dad would call me a painted lady if he saw me now.

Throwback Thursday #49 – First Dating Experiences

Welcome back to Throwback Thursday the brainchild of Maggie and Lauren. Lauren is here again to provide a prompt to jog our memories. We’ve talked about first crushes so it’s only logical to wonder about actual dates. When you think back to your “first dates,” do you cringe or smile? Whatever age you started dating, it was sure to have been an exciting step into being a grown-up. First dates can be awkward, nerve-wracking, exciting, disastrous, wonderful or any number of things. When you start dating, it is usually to find someone who you enjoy spending time with. Then dating becomes more about finding someone you connect with and care about; someone who makes you happy and who you can make happy in return.

The prompt this week is first dating experiences.

1) On your very first date, did you do the asking, or were you asked out?

I was asked out.

2) Were you typically stressed out before a first date?

No not at first.

Did things seem to be easier the more you dated the same person?

No not really typically things seemed to get harder and complicated.

3) What did you do to prepare for the date? Did you wear new clothes, or special outfits?

That’s a hard one because I came from a large working class family and a lot of my clothes were hand me down. I made the most of what I had and occasionally borrowed from my nearest sister.

4) How did you meet those first dates?
I can’t remember how I met my first ever date , strange isn’t it? But most of them I met at the youth club I attended with my friend Anne from school.

Were your dates with friends of a family member, or friends of a friend?

Yes a couple were , a brother of a girl at school and then one of his friends oops!

5) Did you have a curfew on those early dates?

Photo by Jordan Benton on Pexels.com

I had a cerfew right up until I got married! At first it was 9pm then went up to 9.30pm. When I met hubby it went up to 10.30pm and there it stayed until we got married.

Did you typically arrive home on time or were you constantly breaking curfew?

I was very good really, hubby sometimes would rebel and we’d be a quarter of an hour late. He’d be banned from the house for a week!

6) Did your parents insist on meeting whomever you dated?

Yes always!

7) Where did you usually go when on a date? (movies, concerts, picnics, etc.)

All of the above…even went to the Zoo with my very first date.

8) Did the boy/man always pay for the date or did you go Dutch treat?

Dutch until I met hubby.

9) Were you typically the talker or the listener on a date?

Both usually.

10) What did you do if the date clearly wasn’t going well? (feign a headache, ask to go home, end the date early, etc.)

I’d say that my father wanted me home by 8pm or earlier, or I had to be up extra early the next day.

11) A connection from the past to the present, if applicable. How long did you date your current partner before marriage?

© willowdot21 first date with hubby.

Four years I was coming up 14yrs when I met him and I was 17yrs nearly 18yrs when we married.

12) Bonus Question: Care to share a disasters first date??????

Once my cousin and I had a double date and with these two older lads who wanted more than we expected…we to the ladies and left. Safety in numbers 💜💜

Throwback Thursday #48 – That Was Then And This Is Now

This is Throwback Thursday Lauren and Maggies brainchild.

This week’s prompt is from Lauren and it is : That Was Then And This Is Now, she doing something a little different this week. Growing up, we all had dreams and aspirations. Lauren would like us to think back about what we were like and what we wanted as a kid compared to the adult choices we made.

1) When you were a kid, did you like your name? Would you have changed it if you could? Do you like it now?

Oh! Yes I definitely would of changed it then, I was teased a lot about it! I suppose I have grown into it now.

2) As a kid, what always brought a smile to your face? What about now, as an adult? (family-friendly please)

Cake, family and friends.
Yes indeed..the same now plus and you can add grandchildren too💜💜

© willowdot21

3) What was the most important lesson your parents taught you? Did you pass that lesson down to your family?

Be honest and be kind
I really hope so.

4) Are there talents you started as a child that you still have? If so, what are they?

Writing and storytelling…do I still have that talent …. I hope so.

5) Is there something you regret not doing or starting when you were young? What was it?

I wish I had got more A and O levels at school….I actually have no academic certificates.

6) Did you have more close friends as a kid or as an adult? Any idea why?

Definitely as an adult. I was bullied at school by teachers, nuns and my peers. No one liked me so obviously I was not likeable. It’s better now I think I always do my best to be accepted. 💜💜💜

© willowdot21

7) Where did you go to think as a kid? Where do you go now.

© willowdot21

For a walk, anywhere to get away from people.

8) What would be the name of the chapter of your life from 10 – 18? What would the name be the name of the chapter of your life currently?

10-18
Very almost but not quite, gave up.

Now
Let’s hear it for Hubby and the Boys. Big and little.

9) What wonderful thing happened in your adult life that your child self could never have imagined?

People liked me for being me .(I hope)

10) Would your child self like your adult self? Why or why not?

I truly do not know…she was unpredictable. I hope I have made her proud 💜💜

Throwback Thursday #47 Hanging Out.

Welcome back to Throwback Thursday

Lauren’s in the hot seat this week for Throwback Thursday and she says:This week’s prompt is: Hanging Out  Feel write about a place or places you liked to hang out in your youth.

Throwback Thursday is the brainchild of Maggie and Lauren.

So here we go HANGING OUT.

Did you spend more time hanging out at friend’s houses or away from the eyes and ears of parents?

Yes I did , I did not have a great many school friends but I did have a few really nice ones , we used to stay at eachother’s homes occasionally it always fun to be somewhere else. Most of them had big gardens and houses so we always had plenty of places to hide and play. One girl had a great big garden that had a hole in the fence which lead to a huge field we had a whale of a time in there just running wild!

If you stayed home, how did you spend your time?

Colouring , playing with Teddy , reading and as I got older listening to music 💜💜

Did you have a favorite eatery.

With friends? Two really the fish and chip shop at the top of our road and the Wimpy Bar in Ealing Broadway!

Did you go to the mall with friends?

We didn’t have Malls in the UK. But we had high streets and occasionally we go shopping in a group, only window shopping, we never had much to spend!

Did you choose to socialize at bowling alleys, arcades, or roller rinks?

No really definitely not until I was about sixteen and even then very rarely. I can remember bowling once or twice, I loved it. Arcades were were we went on holiday by the sea, usually penny machines. I never ice or roller skated but my sister’s did.

Did you go miniature golfing or do another outside activity?

Again miniature golf was when we were on holiday. I spent a lot of time at the park it was a huge place with a museum, cafe, play area, boating lake, fishing lake, and all sorts of pitches. It was in the same road I lived in.

Did you hang around after school killing time? What did you do?

I always went straight home unless I was on detention …. Hang around at school…never couldn’t get away and home quick enough.

Did your parents typically know where you were?

Yes mostly.

Did you prefer to “hang” with friends or family members?

Hard to say I loved both.

Was it “cool” to be seen hanging out at any particular place?

The Wimpy Bar, the Cinema, and I loved our local youth club that was the place to be! That’s where I met hubby 😉

Was there a place you wanted to hang out, but weren’t allowed to?

No not really 🤣

Throwback Thursday #46 – Secrets, Hiding Places and Niches

We are back again for Throwback Thursday. Maggie is pinch hitting for Lauren today who had some personal things to attend to. She will be back next week.

If you care to join in , it’s easy. This week’s prompt is: Secrets, Hiding Places and Niches.

Now as far as these questions go my answers are I am afraid rather boring. I am sure there will be some really exciting answers from some of you … anyway here goes!

******

Did you keep a diary or a journal? If so, where did you keep it?

Do you know I really do not remember keeping a diary or a journal when I was young… Sometimes we’d have to keep one for school during the holidays, strange really.

Did you have treasures or money you hid from siblings or parents?

Again not really, I just was not very secretive. I never had much money!

Did you have a need to hide things your parents would not approve of, like cigarettes, etc.?

Yes when I was older cigarettes but I don’t remember hiding anything.

Thinking back, describe your most creative hiding place.

Oh! Gosh under my bed or the back of a cupboard…. Not very inventive!

Did you have a tin box or safe or a diary with a lock?

No.

What about yourself? Did you ever have a favorite get away spot or hiding place?

No not really our house and garden really were not big enough.

If you did not feel the need to hide away, where did you go for a little alone time?

My room, but I shared a room up until I was fifteen so it wasn’t easy to find space. There was always the crescent outside of our home, a circular grassed area with trees, it was surrounded by railings and bushes. I would spend time there if it was empty.

If you had siblings, did they hide things from you? If so, what types of things?

I really don’t remember.

Now that you are an adult, do you still have little niches where you hide things away, like mad money, treasured letters, etc?

No really I don’t.

When you feel the need to be alone, to where do you retreat?

The garden ,the spare room or the kitchen.

Sorry I am a tad
