Once upon a time there was a girl with two younger sisters. Their parents had been on a two-three week holiday without them but brought them t-shirts back. They made them wear these t-shirts to take a photo and not only that they gave them identical haircuts and made them tuck those t-shirts into their pants.
The girl was kind of sick of looking like her sisters so she thought she’d dress up Spanish for the day. Luckily it coincided with an international theme at school.
The girls parents liked buying more matching items of clothing for the two older girls while the younger girl generally had the hand-me-downs. The girls were also made to collect the eggs and help feed the pigs.
The girl played in her school’s fife band and they used to go to Nuriootpa for band competitions every year. (She’s the 2nd one from the left in the top row). The band weren’t really that musical but they looked pretty damn good in their red and white uniforms with the girls wearing bobby socks.
The girls’ aunt got married so she invited the girls to be her flower girls. The girls’ mum made all their dresses while the bride’s mum made hers. The mum kept all the bridesmaid dresses until quite recently but the girl said that she didn’t want to keep it. She didn’t think her son would want to wear it.
Once upon a time the girl swam in a swimming pool that didn’t have a great big fence around it. Her Nana always supervised her and her sisters to make sure they were safe. Nana isn’t around any more but her memory definitely lingers on and the girl’s sister lives in the same apartment. The pool is still there too but now it has a great big fence around it and a list of rules as long as your arm.
