Woohoo Stweetparty it's like 1977 all over again, I am gonna have a hunt around for some nice bridge rolls a bit of the old Primula Cheese Spread with some stuffed olives and luvvly jubbly Ritz Crackers.

I have mugs and a teaspoon that we were all given at school in 1977 might see if I can find them for old times sake.

I hope we get to see some of the Buckingham Palace concert and parades over the weekend.

I found a fabulous cake, shame we wouldn't be able to get the strawberries or I would give it a go.

I thought I had a photo lying around of 1977:

Yes, I remember the silver jubilee street party and receiving a silver jubilee mug.

That's brilliant I think we still had slides in 1977, not proper photos.

I do recognise those chairs though, we have them in our office.

I will bring the grapefruit, wrapped in tin foil, with cheese cubes (luckily they do cheese here ready cubed) and pineapple chunks on sticks

Happy days, looking at some Top Ten I've just discovered that I may actually still live in a bit of a 1977 timewarp.





Was meant to post the play list but ne'er mind you got Lionel instead.

I remember having a street party but don't remember any sort of mugs/glasses being given to children. Don't think there are any photo's either which actually is a real shame.

I'll help blow up some balloons and make the kids some crowns (doing that at work so by Monday will be an expert at it)

Any of us of a certain age still got their Silver Jubilee Glass that all British schoolchildren were given back in 1977. I have
Silver jubilee glass? I got a mug!! - although I do remember the village holding a huge party in the local agricultural merchants barn where everyone sat at one of 12 tables according to the month you were born - with huge amounts to eat, drink and be merry.

Certainly in our village this year (different one), there doesnt seem to be much celebrating going on - oh well will have to do some of our own.
