Flashback mother like daughter


This is one of my favourite photos, taken at Butlins (probably Barry Island) in the mid '70s.  I am the little one sporting the rather fetching swimsuit and trying exceptionally hard to pose like my very gorgeous mum!

My uncomfortably sexy pose really demonstrates to me how much I wanted to be like my mum.  She has always been very comfortable in her skin.  She still poses when the camera points her way...even at 77 she knows how to work what her mama gave her!  She has real poise. There was obviously some hero-worship going on at this point, with me trying to emulate her effortless posing.  Bless little me!!
