Storytelling naughty lil sister x

Good morning, and seriously is it really October already? It is, then it must be Storytelling Sunday. So this is the day we all join forces with the lovely Sian to share a tale or two about something interesting. As you've probably guessed mine is about my sister.

So this month is my sister Rachel's birthday and she will either be celebrating with us today or be off with her boyfriend doing something slightly more alcoholic I am sure. When I think of my sister, I remember many things............
  • the way she managed to complete her degree via the Open University in 5 that is commitment,
  • how she has come through some very tough times with her head screwed on the right way,
  • her ability to see through the most tough financial issue and sort it out,
  • how she always manages to find herself a great job and make amazing friendships,
  • how she can make anything appetizing out of even the most unattractive ingredients,
  • how she makes me feel like the lil sister these days cos she's soooooooo grown up,
  • how she loves her family and would stand up for them with avengance,
  • and many more besides. 

However, there are also the memories, she probably would rather forget, and yes I'm sorry Rach but I'm planning on sharing some today.

So here are some of the exploits of my own personal naughty lil sister.
This photo tells you all you need to know about my sister, she loves fashion especially shoes and this cheeky smile hides a wealth of naughtiness.

I mean look at that gorgeous face!

 Just to make us even, here are some old pictures which include me too....................dressing up at nanny and grandad's house.

Eating ice lollies I think at Lyme Regis.....................

When we were little my sister had the habit of disappearing often on shopping trips. My mother would scour the aisles trying the find her, only to find her somewhere she shouldn't be. She would often adventure out on her bike without telling my parents where she was off to, leading to much weeping and wailing and knashing of teeth as we scoured the neighbourhood searching for her little squashed body. Luckily that horror story never happened.
There was the Sunday morning we awoke to Rach having chopped all her hair off in a fit of pique and the hair was strewn around her bedroom floor. I think it was around the time she was meant to be an attendant to the Rose Queen so it did not bode well for the photographs.
When I was a prefect I caught her and her then boyfriend in the 6th form common room, which when ur a third year is off limits! Naughty girl. She was only holding hands though so that's ok.
When I left home, Rach turned from a brightly coloured young thing into the Black widow. Yep the black phase began. Me well I went through it too but I'd left home so that's ok right? When Rach came to stay with me and my friends in London we were all a bit naughty as we had to hide her from the doorman so she wouldn't be turfed out of the nursing home. The next time she came she disappeared one night, so off we went searching the East End and found her buying cigarettes in a local pub.............she was still underage, naughty thing.

But what I really want to say is Happy Birthday lil sis and I love you very much you naughty lil sister xxxxxx
