The then-6-year-old wrote an adorable story about her teacher, headmaster and parents - complete with colourful drawings.

"Unearthing more gems from my de-clutter. This is the first story I wrote at Silverstream School back in 1975. And I had TWO friends!!!!" she captioned the photo shared on Facebook.

"Mummy and Daddy, very cute," wrote one fan.

"Are you still friends with them?" joked another.

Hilary also shared an old passport photo she unearthed.

Hilary may not like it - but we do!
