I decided that I wanted to write a post that would allow me to look back over the past- remeber some of my favourite things about being little. I love hearing stories from when I was younger and looking at how things have changed now that I’ve grown up. I recruited the help of my dad (Lionel) and Jack to answer a series of questions about my life then and now.
What were/are my most common nicknames?
Lionel: Ky, Midge, KP, Nut
Jack: Monkey, Ky, Smelly, Gorgeous
What was/is my favourite outfit?
Lionel: Anything with Bratz on it
Jack: Fluffy socks, leggings + jumper – biggest one you can find!!!
What foods did/do I hate?
Lionel: You liked banana, then not. Tomato, broccoli and veg in general.
Jack: Sausages, red meat.
What was/is my favourite way to wear my hair?
Lionel: Always in bunches and the more, the merrier!
Jack: Messy bun, in a giant knot- however you wake up with it
What 3 words would use to describe me then/now?
Lionel: Polite, respectful and cute.
Jack: Caring, beautiful and annoying!
What was/is my strangest habit?
Lionel: Not strange, but you always had to have either a doll or build a bear with you, wherever we went.
Jack: Still talking to teddy bears at 21!
What is your favourite memory of me back then/now?
Lionel: Watching you dance with Heidi in your first ‘comp’, with Piglet in your hair, staring up at her with a huge smile and without a care in the world
Jack: Going to an open air theatre, ice skating, holiday to Spain
What is your worst memory of me back then/now?
Lionel: Running up the stairs after you clobbered your head on the bannister, not knowing what I was going to find, after you screamed. (I had concussion by the way and was sick all over Lionel at the hospital)
Jack: Nottingham Hospital. We were miles away from home with no family, you were blue lighted in an ambulance between 2 hospitals and were incredibly poorly.
Who was/is my favourite person?
Lionel: Probably me generally, but Jonny at dancing!
Jack: I would like to say me, but I think it’s your dad.
Thanks to my volunteers for letting me pester them! As you can tell I have always been a medical calamity who loves teddy bears!🤣 Could be worse things in life I suppose?!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend in the sun and are all having a positive start to the week! Stay safe 💕
