As at least 50% of you readers of my blog are years younger than me I'm wondering whether any of you had one of these little Mothercare cookers in 1978/79?
This is the picture on the box it would have come in ... and the reason I'm asking is ... the 'model' is Hannah and she's wearing a spotty dress and pinafore which I made. She used to do ballet, tap, modern, jazz and national dance and this was her costume in a competition. She danced a ballet duet to a song entitled (I think) The Kite when she was 4 or 5. I made the outfits for both Han and her partner and appliquéed 2 kites, one red and one blue, on each of the pinafores. I think Han still has the dress. I'm not sure, but I hope she has!
The reason for this little bit of nostalgia is the fact that I'm trying to clear my desk of clutter and came across the photo. It's Mum's photo and she lent it to me a while ago to scan. Must remember to give it back! We thought at the time it would have been nice if Mothercare could have given Han a cooker but silly us, they don't do that sort of thing, so Mum bought her the cooker, keeping the box for herself!!! Since then the cooker was passed on to my god-daughter who has since returned it. I've no idea where it is currently, but I'm sure we'll come across it at some stage. Perhaps Hannah has that, too!
