It's been fun watching some of the festivities on the TV. There've been a lot of things organised in our village - a street party on the green and a firework display later. Seeing all the flags everywhere, the bunting, the children dressing in red, white and blue reminded me of the Queen's silver jubilee in 1977.
I then remembered there's a photo of me from the silver jubilee celebrations at school. I was wearing a red, white and blue sash made by my mum. What's more the dress I was wearing was made by my mum! After some digging I managed to find it:
It's not hard to guess which one is me if you know that I'm tall! My older brother is in the back row in the middle with the dark shiny hair and I look taller than him. My little brother is in the front (I still call him my little brother which some people think is funny).
The thing I remember about that day is how hot I was in that long sleeved dress. It was made for me for Christmas but it was the only red, white and blue dress I had. The boy next to me is holding up a Jubilee coin which all the children were given as a memento. I still have mine.
I hope you're having a good week so far!
