If someone asked me what I think about the 90’s I would say: The Spice Girls, walking to the shop to buy sweets, bike rides, fighting with my brothers, learning to play cricket, dancing, laughing, agonising, fancying boys all the time, discovering the wonder of friends, discovering the heartbreak of losing friends, and above all carefree happiness. I just loved those years growing up and when the #VlogStars linky opened up this week and it was a 90’s Tag…I was excited to record it!
As I remember my teenage years, I was struck with how little worries I had. My parents gave us a wonderful childhood that was a balance of being busy but not exhausting ourselves, protecting us from the world but not too much and letting us have fun and knowing when to reign it in. I took that all for granted as a kid and now I am a mum, I understand that this delicate balance was well thought out and nothing short of brilliant. Now looking back, I want the same for Emma – I want her to experience all the things I did. I want to find that balance for her, and I can only hope that I’ll be able to find it!
But for now, I recorded this little video covering my favourite things from the 1990’s. I actually recorded another initially but as I watched back, I had somehow regressed back to a teenager and said “awesome” “cool” and “mainstream” far more than I would like to…so you’re left with this, which is much more ‘me’ and I hope you like it!
