Then and now *sigh*

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest features here.

There are moments when I’m really reminded of how my life has changed since the advent of motherhood.

Here’s a picture of me clubbing on a Sydney bar top in the Nineties in an ostrich bra and hotpants.

And now, here is that same ostrich bra, ripped to shreds and placed into upended Duplo to make icecreams at 800p each in my children’s shop.



I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry. Maybe both!

    At least you have the memory of wearing an ostrich trimmed bra in a bar in Sydney and now it’s the bra that just keeps on giving! 800p is a bit steep though, even for ostrich.

      I thought it was pricey too. Not what it cost in what my children charmingly call ‘the olden days’.

    That’s very funny! wow you were (still are I’m sure) hot.

    *Sigh* indeed. I’ve been bombarded this week with photos of young hot people enjoying Apres Ski….

    Personally, I’m impressed you made it home that night in Sydney with the bra still on you!!!
