Christmas Day 1965 with my mum, dad and two elder sisters.
This was the first Christmas my dad had the cine camera.
I was five.
My mum had a bad cold. I had a red dressing gown.
Check all those Christmas cards and that very 60's pattern wallpaper.
I got a dumper truck, a racing car, a little box of lego and a lovely warm scarf.
My elder sister got some 'smellies' and a paint-by-numbers set - they were a thing in the 60's.
My younger sister got some 'smellies' and a notebook and pencil.
And my mum got a black 'nightware set' from my dad. Oh la la...
Then we had the traditional Christmas dinner - turkey and all the trimmings.
I wasn't vegetarian then - I'm not sure many people were in the 1960's?
I still ate from a bowl instead of a plate, and with a fork and spoon - how humiliating!
But I was wearing a dinky little bow-tie, so cool points for that.
The table cloth has long since gone - but would you believe we still have the matching serviettes - 54 years later.
Happy Christmas, happy days...
