When I was about 6 years old, my mother took me shopping one day to buy some new clothes for our holiday. We went into Marks & Spencer and there I spied this little doll. I immediately fell in love with her and begged to be allowed to buy her. My mother says that I rarely asked for anything and when I offered to use my pocket money to buy her (saved for holiday spending) mum said she couldn't refuse me. So she bought her for me and I have loved my little doll ever since. I named her Susan. As I am now nearly 66 years old that makes Susan 60 years old. Her original clothes are long gone and she is a little faded (aren't we all at 60 years old) but her eyes still open and close, she still has eyelashes and her arms and legs still move well. She is between 8 and 9 inches long (22 cm), so a proper "baby doll". I think she is very sweet. I am going to make her a new dress.
