my first communion

So Yahoo Photos is closing down and then are moving all old photos over to whatever account you want. Since I have the flickr account anyway www.flickr.com/sineadborg moved them there. It worked overnight so saw what was moved this morning

I had forgotten I had this - its my first communion photo. This is before I got the spleen taken out - you can see I'm whiter than my veil! I look like butter wouldn't melt in my mouth. Truth is I have long socks as I had bruises on my shins from getting into a fight with a young not so ladylike Valerie in my class.

I still hate the name Valerie because of that (another reason why we're not sharing the names we picked for boy or girl Hobbit as folks have these preconceptions - we do !)

Dont ya just love the bowl haircut. At least this one my Mum didnt try and cut. She used to put tape (cellotape) on our foreheads and try and cut under for a straight line. Of course pulling half our hair off in process taken off and was never straight.. I had geometric haircuts WAY before they were cool folks

Hope you had a smashing July 4th or a good Wednesday for rest of the world and have a brilliant weekend

That's too cute...You know I always hypothesized that if the kids turned out to be a bit yellow (from all the bilirubin) than that might be a sign they had spherocytosis...but since their daddy is so pale (those Irish genes of theirs), I thought my second child, just took after him. She's super white. I never really worried about her before. I just need to get us all in. I've been working on that stinkin hemotologist referal for over a month now. I can't understand why it's so hard to get an appointment with one of these guys.
