Height of Summer

I've seen The Height of Summer on quite a few blogs recently and thought I'd like to join in.  My Royal Air Force ID card always had me at 170cm which roughly means 5' 7".  When I asked The Teenage One to measure my height recently it seems I'm now only 168½cm which is 5' 6" (and a little bit).

Seems I've shrunk a little or the RAF had it wrong for 13 years!!
This is TTO and me at the RAF museum, Hendon (standing next to a Whirlwind helicopter.  The type my Dad worked on in the late 1960s, early 70s.  Just a little useless info there.)  

He measures up to 180½cm or 5' 11 ¼ ".  Nearly 6 ft which ever way you look at it.  

I did think, looking at this photo, that the old diet needed to be resumed but then I remembered, TTO is as skinny as a rake and has about a 24" waist  :0)

  2. Oh no another one that has shrunk! I am definitely not measuring myself as I am proud of being 5'6". Would be devastated to find out I was shorter :0)

  3. I demand a Steward's Inquiry! I am taller than you, so I'm afraid that you makes you more like 5'5" and a bit, whether you like it or not!

  6. This has been such a fun series. I am catching up on entries now. I finally sorted my own yesterday and we are very similar in height. I used to be 170cm but seem to have shrunk a smidge over the past few years :-)
