We’ll remember this night when we’re old and grey, because in the future these will be the good ‘ol days..
No matter how old we are, everyone still enjoys looking back on “the good ‘ol days” these good ‘ol days might date back a few years.. months.. or in some cases weeks!..
“Aw remember like two weeks ago when it was sunny out and we did nothing for a week? those were some good times!”
Nonetheless it’s always a fun time looking back on past memories, pondering over years gone by, laughing over the old photos, bad fashion choices and dodgy hairdos! No matter if you’re 85 or 25 being nostalgic gives everyone that warm and fuzzy feeling.
Back in the days when all you had to worry about was going down the drain after your mother unplugged the bath, (I’m sure that wasn’t just me!) who you were going to sit with on the bus during your school trip, or what you were going to wear to the disco on Friday night.
Seemed like such major problems at the time didn’t they?
Back when Christmas was the most exciting time ever.. when getting this little creeper from your uncle just made your 7 year old little life:
Looking back there wasn’t anything “amazing” about you Ally was there? all you did was talk in an eerily sweet voice, yet you managed to bring so much joy..all the while scaring the wits out of every mother in the country (well mine anyway!). You never did turn evil though, despite the concerns that you would somehow manage to steal a kitchen knife and bludgeon us all to death.
“Hiii I’m Allyy and I’m gonna get youuu” still gives me chills.
Back to a time when if you didn’t have one of these you weren’t a cool kid:
That my little 13 year old friends is a Walkman. She was the precursor to what was to become the discman MP3 player and eventually that snazzy iPod touch you can’t go anywhere without. (Can’t say much I suppose, I am glued to my iPhone.. but it’s only because I had to beg my sisters to let me use the wonderful walkman you see there)
These. Just these.
Back when Kids TV was actually watchable:
Back when you got along with your siblings.. (for the most part)
Back before you valued every precious moment of sleep, and going to bed was the worst thing ever:
(I will fight this!)
(You might also want to take note of the fashion.. not one of my finer moments)
Back when being seen in public with your dad was cool:
(That’s not my pint….)
Okay maybe that was always cool……
So you see my point. Writing this post was so fun. It’s really good just to look back on times gone by. I’m sure in another 19 years I’ll be whipping out photos I’ve taken recently and dying of mortification all over again! Not to mention craving some of the food I eat now, or longing for some of my favourite TV shows and tech gadgets.
So I leave you all with this classic (albeit cheesy) feelgood song of the 90’s. I’m sure you remember this lot..
