I was always fashion on trend as a child, my mother dressed me like a 90 year old but one year I scored.I snuck under the bed, unwrapped my gift, joy of joys it was a pink smock top and short set.I tried it on, danced around the room,packd it up and snuck it back under the bed.On Christmas Day my fake excitement was worth an award but wear a pink gingham print maternity style top with short shorts made me a superstar in my eyes.

A beautiful handmade doll from my grandmother, she was my favourite for years until she was so old she just couldn’t be repaired again. In an age now when everything is so disposable, it’s a lovely reminder that sometime the simple things in life can be the sweetest!

My first ever Cabbage Patch Doll in 1985. She had orange hair and green eyes and her name was Azaria Una. I was so jealous as my cousins had 3 each and I finally got one and was over the moon!

I was once given a dog collar for Christmas! I was pretty upset because my older siblings were lauging at me, until i heard barking from the laundry and ran to see a Golden retriever puppy! Little Paddy is now an old boy but still gets around the whole family!

A chocolate eclairs lolly Christmas Tree. It had about 50 lollies on there all carefully placed with a pin. It looked amazing and I didn’t want to ruin it by eating the lollies. I hid it from my brothers and sister!

My favourite Christmas gift as a child was a pair of white and hot pink roller skate boots. We lived in a home with a steep driveway and I loved roller skating down it. I’d wear my walkman and listen to Kylie Minogue on cassette…I was pretty cool in those skates.
