At Primary school, I was one of two Hollyhocks. We both had our growing spurt before the others.

Shame they all carried on after we'd stopped. :-0

Jane - that photo sounds a good one to bring out around the Festive table

That made me giggle. Does he remember the occasion?

I remember being quite miffed that I wasn't one of the main characters ruined my acting career. ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)

Sigh .... I was a lion. My only 'speaking' part was to 'roar' which sent me into a fit of coughing :-(
First and only appearance - still can't figure out what a lion had to do with the Nativity though..... :-S

Never had an 'acting' part - was a narrator once.

My grandson was Joseph last year at pre-school.
This year, at 'big' school he's been demoted to a sheep!!

I was an angel - arms crossed against my chest till numb

The following year behind the screen in the choir which I preferred especially as Ivor Cutler the Scottish poet who took a most irreverent view of most things was tinkering the keyboard

My Youngest granddaughter is a donkey this year - non speaking parts only for year 1 she says proudly :-)
