Looking Back On Time

May 04, 2017

Whilst I was spending time at home over the Easter holidays, I spent a day visiting my nana and grandad. We spent the day reminiscing over old times with my nana telling me stories about when I was a child, whilst we looked through some photographs she and my grandad had taken over the years.

I've always been confused when people tell me that I look like the exact double of my relatives as I never saw what they saw. Looking back on photos of when my dad was my age or when my brothers were little tots, it became so obvious that we do actually look the same. I even got a photograph of my brother as a baby mixed up with my own and assumed it was me until I realised that the blankets in each photo were different.

I absolutely love looking back on my childhood things as it really makes me realise how wonderful my childhood was and how lucky I am to have the family I do. Not that I didn't know that already, but its always a good reminder. The one thing that I was disappointed about however was the fact that my nana no longer has an old video player that played all of the old VHS tapes as I came across a volume of Tom and Jerry, as well as Tiny Tots TV and Aladdin. It's crazy how much in love I was with these VHS tapes (my nana told me that every time I came over, one of them would always be playing, no matter how long I stayed). Now they're just picking up dust in a little corner of the spare bedroom. I would love to be able to go back and watch all of this stuff because these small influences are what made me into the person I am today.
