29-Sep-12 School memories!

In Blog, Personal on September 28, 2012 at 12:49 pm

After a busy week in my IT world this week, with a number of various challenges, I decided to make my blog another personal update today. Especially as I came across a number of old memorable photos today.

I’m so organised. When we went away on holiday in the summer, I hid away some vouchers I won in our annual Xmas ball last year. So well, that since returning from holiday, we have been unable to find them!

Today I made the decision to root high and low from them and finally I found them! In the case of an old video cassette! But along my travels, I can across some very old photos and thought they were so good, I would share them in my blog today. Apologies for the quality, but Kodak was only a new invention then!

The photos below are of my first school trip at my secondary school, which was camping in Hindhead. Helping me to find my directions through the wood and with washing up is my good pal Bazza.

What a fine pair of bobble hats! All the rage back then.

Learning to do chores at an early age. What a lovely clean bowl of water!

This photo is of me and another of my best pals Captain (Graham) on the left. The lad on the right clearly did not like the rain!

I guess this was a summer holiday!

The next set of photos were from one of our last trips at school, which was to Boulogne. If you are wondering why Lew, one of my other best pals is holding is nose, Captain’s mum decided it was a good idea for him to bring egg sandwiches! On the right is Onde, one of the lads in our form, who I have not seen for years.

Another summer’s day!

In this shot are my four closest mates, Lew, Captain and Neil, with Bazza making an idiot of himself. Timeless!

Was Captain really the same age as us? He looks about 8!
