I had no plans to celebrate the Queen's diamond jubilee, and still don't, but with all the jubilee talk at the moment I thought it would be nice to show Sunnyboy photographs of me at the silver jubilee in 1977.

Sunnyboy and I decided to mark our own jubilee moment in our family history by making a red, white and blue window display,
and we've seen a lot more red, white and blue in the last few days!
We were fortunate to meet the gentleman who lives here when he arrived home while we were taking photographs of his house. He told us it had taken a month to decorate and he has more balloons to go up on Tuesday. We were very impressed with his window display.
Sunnyboy has also learnt the national anthem, had a jubilee gingerbread man from Tesco,
and I made him a jubilee t-shirt. I did get the flag a little wrong but Sunnyboy was still pleased with it and said he'd also like a bonnet like the one I had when I was a little girl.
We haven't made a bonnet yet but we did make a cardboard tube streamer like my silver jubilee one. Well not quite the same, as we added some stars to the tube and then realised it looked like it was based on the US flag. All in all we were very happy with our jubilee things!
Abolish the monarchy, but enjoy the party!
