Does your mum read the blog?

Kirsty said...

I thought it was going to be your mum & the small but Olivia is so much better.

Is the difference that your mom has kangaroo paws and Olivia does not? Am I close? =)

Love the comparison!

Your Mum is going to be cranky with you. It's a pretty uncanny likeness though.

It's the colour of the swimming costume, isn't it?

Claire (ethel loves fred) said...

Yup, it's the arms and the colour of the swimming costume!

Lucky for me Mum has a really good sense of humour, and is able to laugh at herself, which is just as well because the 3 of tease her relentlessly - all in good fun, and secretly I think she likes it!

Hahhaah I love this.
My Mum would kill me if I even put a nice photo of her up never mind a beach shot.
I love original photographs from the 60's 70's.
There's a great group on flickr that has a lot of them and I just love going through them.
:)

This is the best Monday laugh ever I love it. Your mum looks like she is having a ball. I love that header too, I have a photo quite similar of my grandad and nan. Gorgeous.
