I still have...

...lots of my books from when I was a child. I dug them out the other day. These are a few of my favourites. My absolute favourite was The Diddakoi by Rumer Godden. It was a TV series too called Kizzy and is entirely responsible for my life-long, deep-rooted wish to own a gypsy caravan! I read it to my two girls a couple of years ago, and still bawled my eyes out when the old horse dies! The pictures in these books instantly transport me back to when I wore Mary Quant smock dresses and sat in the back of my Dad's Volvo Estate listening to his cassette tapes of The Carpenter's...happy times!

Ballet (A Ladybird Book Series 662)
The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm (Puffin Books)

Do you remember any of these? 


  1. I remember the ballet book, I used to have lots of ladybird books, my favourite was the elves and the shoemaker, I think that's where my love of sewing comes from.

  2. I had lots too! My favourite was Cinderella. I could never decide out of the the three ball gowns she wore, which I liked best!
    Funny how clearly you remember them isn't it...
