Oh dear – it’s been a sad evening for me…
I was doing some packing for the move and found the brightly-coloured plastic-beaded bracelets I used to wear as a teenager (and perhaps into my early 20s, ahem).
I’ve got a lot of stuff and I really need to be brutal and throw away things that I don’t use/wear/like (and probably things that don’t fit me anymore – eek!). I saw the bracelets. I knew I didn’t wear them anymore, that they didn’t fit with me style anymore. I knew that I’d outgrown them: they were firmly part of my teenage/student days. And those days are behind me now.
I knew they had to go.
So, for prosterity, I decided to take a photo of my lovely jewel and neon and primary coloured friends that joined me for many a pub session/lecture/party/clubbing disaster/first date… Many of the beaded bracelets I made myself and the bangles are the first I ever found that fit me as usually they just fall off my hands (they’re from a toyshop. The bangles, not my hands.).
Out comes the camera. When I switch it on it makes all the right sounds, but nothing appears. Off and on again. Nope. Remove the battery and memory card. Still nothing. Press the buttons – it still takes a picture. Then I noticed that there was something on the screen, but it was very dark, as if looking through an image through smoked glass, only just visible when pointed at something bright. Bugger. It looks like when I go back to working full-time my first big purchase will be a new camera!!
But for now, here’s a picture of my lovely bracelets:
I hope they brighten your day as they’ve brightened many of mine.
