  1. some songs never leave you! Although I confess seeing this makes me feel a bit old!

    • No, Joss. Young for your age, not a bit old. When I hear those songs, I think “Gosh, have I really been around that long?”. And the music was so much better then, especially in the 60s. Whoops, now I’m showing my age with that last statement!

      • heh heh. yeah, those were pretty much my own thoughts. The other day I checked on the publishing date of a book – 1984 – well, okay. Then I realized that was 30 years ago. How did that happen?

  6. What a fantastic trip down memory lane, love them all! Thinking of my last post too, The Beatles were one of my dad’s favourite and I remember dancing the twist with him when he played their records…a great memory, thanks for this Sarah.

    • Yes, Sherri, my parents used to dance the twist. I remember my mother, in particular, dancing in her tight white jeans worn with a colourful shirt. Then, later in the 60s, she wore miniskirts and had her blonde hair cut in the same style as the actress Julie Christie and wore the same shade of pink lipstick, too! Ah, memory lane … and there’s me saying I never reminisce.

      • Ahh..well, for someone who never reminisces, you did a fine job here Sarah 🙂 Love it! Your mother sounds very glam! When I met my to-be stepmother (in Brighton!), she had a blonde beehive with knee high white boots, a mini dress with a chain belt and false eyelashes out to there…I thought she looked amazing 😉

      • Yes, my mother was a fashion model in London for a while and carried on doing the odd show for a local posh dress shop until only a couple of years ago. I loved the 60s fashions. It was so exciting going up to town to Carnaby Street then. I also remember going to Mary Quant’s shop and later getting one of my mother’s hand-me-down from there — a tight, ribbed silver polo neck jumper!

      • Oh yes, I had one of those polo neck jumpers in white and I loved it! Wow, a fashion model for a mum, how wonderful! My step-mum was crazy for Carnaby Street and Mary Quant too and had designs for me to be like Twiggy (I was stick thin then, ha!) but I never made it to the actual shop! She worked in a boutique in Riegate which I do remember visiting often not long after my dad met her before they moved to Brighton and just loving all the fashionable outfits. She was the one who was instrumental in getting my wonderful blue coat. My mother was (and still is, like your mum) also very elegant and stylish, I remember her high heels and long, satin gloves. Oh those were the days…now I feel so frumpy lol 😉

      • I lived in Reigate for a while in my late 20s. My son works and lives there at the moment, but prefers the seaside. We’ve so many coincidences of places, Sherri, our paths were bound to cross in the end 🙂

      • Wow, no kidding Sarah! And to think that it took blogging for our paths to cross at last. So many wonderful coincidences 🙂

      • PS You don’t look frumpy in your your photo, Sherri, but I admit to living in jeans, jumpers, T-shirts, and flat-soled footwear these days. They’re just so convenient and comfortable.

      • Ahh..that’s very sweet of you Sarah, thank you, but I think that’s it, writing from home doesn’t really make for dressing up much, but then it is nice to do so when the occasion calls for it 🙂

  8. I remember the Band Aid release very well as all my friends were singing it in the school playground, the new one is good but it doesn’t quite have that haunted feel to it.
