For this weeks FLASHBACK FRIDAY I am going back to 1988, when I was 14.
Yet again another bad hair style - this time a perm on top I think! Not a good look!
This is a photo of me and my old best friend Donna, when we met up again two years after my family and I moved from Newbury, Berkshire to North Devon. For anyone who saw my flashback Friday photo 2 weeks ago of an old primary school photo, some of you thought I was Donna, when I asked you to guess which child was me!
When I first moved to Devon, Donna and I wrote to each other all the time and we met up a few times over the years. Nowadays we are friends on facebook and the last time I saw her was November 2008. As it is even though we don't see or contact each other that much, she is the friend I have been friends with the longest, as I have known her since 1984, when we discovered we had a mutual love of all things Wham! related!
I often wonder if we would have stayed friends had I stayed in Newbury, as not long after I moved away she got expelled from the school we went to together and had to go to one in another town. She also fell pregnant at 16 and had a gorgeous son who she raised without his father being present as he didn't want to know! I admire her for that because I don't know how I would have coped in the same situation.
