This week’s Gallery theme at Sticky Fingers is the Eighties and I have had a good laugh and a bit of a cringe over my collection of dog eared photos spanning that ill conceived decade. Shoulder pads and drainpipe jeans, sweater dresses and jump suits, monkey boots and stripes – so MANY stripes!

But, as I was rummaging through it was these two photos which caught my eye. Both are student railcards, the first was taken in 1985 as I left home and set off for college for the first time, the second as I began my final undergraduate year in 1988. I learned so much in those three years – most of it about myself – and, as we begin to look at Universities for The Tallest One, these two pictures really stopped me in my tracks! I’m not sure whether it is a good idea to relive your teenage and student memories as a parent or not!

For more 1980’s memorabilia and a giggle at the fashions pop over to Tara’s place and have a rummage through!
