Holidays – my next topic

In my effort to keep motivated and organised I have found a great group of people here: http://organizedgenealogist.blogspot.co.uk
All the talk of various methods of storing and organising your folders got me looking again at the disorganised pile of papers I’ve been shuffling around from one place to another. Finally I separated my photographs into categories and one of the sub-categories has been named ‘Holidays’.
I shall now attempt to further separate these into different years of my childhood holidays. You might think this would be easy, but all my holidays were spent at Pontins Holiday Camps, which exude a generic air of chalets and Bluecoats.
These holidays were taken between 1966 and 1975, which were ten years of not the best fashion you’ve ever seen. Here is a taster of some of my holiday clothes, in particular my taste for floral trousers that were way too short in the leg.
