Time tunnel Tuesday

I was having another sort through my memorabilia boxes to organise them before they go in the loft. Slightly distracting when things from the past you had forgotten about turn up like these treasures:

My 5th form timetable which was inside my pencil tin:

Several photos from university balls with my student boyfriend:

A signed match programme from the day Swansea beat Australia and we were match stewards:

Oh and a very cute little girl from 2004:

Plenty of things to keep and relive the memories in years to come! What do you keep in your memory box?

A trip down memory lane

Being forced to hunt out my school exam certificates sent me to my parents' garage this weekend to go through some of the many storage boxes of stuff! These have been filling their lovely double garage since I moved north 3.5 years ago... So about time I looked in them. 

It was a case of going through them one at a time... Whilst doing so I did manage to throw some bits and pieces away! Eventually on the third box result:

It's funny that I've never needed them since 1987 and 1989 respectively! Just so glad I did't lose them as it costs a fortune to get replacements...

On the way to finding these I came across a real memory mine..

Holiday souvenirs such as these totally non-PC American "Indian" items from the Grand Canyon in 1979

Lots of school related memories including school reports, photos and my Beaconsfield High School scarf:

Several souvenir newspapers showing my love of history, monarchy and weather (I did a geography degree!):

And of course memories of my own children as babies:

And my daughter's first photo shoot aged 3 months:

Looking forward to having a second look through as I sort it more thoroughly at my house so that things are easier to find in future! Do you have a treasure of memories like this?
