I honestly don't think that Mandi takes after me, I think she's got a lot of her father in her, as does Tony. Some have also that she looks like me........

This made me search my photos to see what I looked like when I was her age... Well I was certainly slimmer than I am now and I suppose I can see a sort of likeness between us.


I was her age here - and I remember so well how full of life I felt and I had so much energy!!!!


As you can see I did suntan like she does.............


This photo was taken over 15 years ago and I personally think she looks younger nowadays than she did then...........



If you look at her father - you can see she does have her father's eyes. Tony has my shape - almondy. Also Martin had blue eyes which both of them do have, I have green......


This was taken around the same time as the one of me on the pedalo, but I had had quite a few ouzos by this time and it was a long walk back to the hotel via the quayside!!! It's a long story, but to cut it short - we had to have help negotiating the sea wall etc................. LOL

I am very flattered that people think she looks like me, but that's wishful thinking on their part. I'm no longer the go-getter of yesteryear, I've certainly piled on the pounds since I've been unable do a lot of things, but luckily with these pictures I can see what I used to be like and be thankful that I had all those opportunities. Also that I have two wonderful children who have grown up into fantastic adults and who I'm so very proud of.
