Worst thing of the day was being dressed the same as my sister and being made to hold hands

Having looked at the photo again, not sure who gave me that asymmetrical fringe cut, suspect it was my mam grrrrrrr

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.
Perhaps we got glasses because we was in St.Helens..."World Class In Glass" as the town signs now say

I shall have to see if I've got any photos but I suspect that my Dad was still taking slides at that time. I remember wearing a red gypsy skirt, a white blouse & a blue, cotton tank top thing over the top.

My Mum's friend (who now lives in Wanaka) was introduced to the Queen when she came to St.Helens & showed her round a new sensory garden, created especially for the blind.

ok, who's got the can opener?





One of the remarkable things about the Silver Jubilee parties was that neighbours, who wouldn't be seen dead together in a pub, managed to put on Abigail's Party food and beer for the adults.
Put together decorations, bunting, wallpaper tables with paper table cloths and build up anticipation levels in the youngsters in the weeks leading up to the celebrrations.
Fleet review, in the Solent, meant run-ins with the shore patrols, multi-lingual scrapping and rib-tickling with night sticks/pick axe handles by provost marshals.
Games for the younger teen males included 500cc grand prix, round the gravel paths of the close, with Barry Sheene, Kenny Roberts and Johnny Cecotto competing on Choppers and 5 speed racers. He, with the bloodiest/most bruised knee, was The Man. TCP and gravel rash were the pit lane smells and sights.

A Double Diamond works wonders so drink one today! This was a beer with a taste somewhere between Tesco value bitter and the contents of the Grand Union canal. We totally believed that it was somehow the elixir of life. It was only surpassed by Watneys Red Barrel which, in a bizarre testament to the power of advertising, appeared in Spain with the package holiday boom. The Spaniards had obviously watched UK telly and thought that the prospect of warm Watneys would have us flocking to their bodegas. Happily, holidaying Brits took to the San Miguel like a duck to water and the Spanish were left to wash their cars with this awful English offering.
