Wednesday December 27th 1961


A couple of post ago I said there was another special celebration today
~~~~~~~~
The UK Prime Minister was Harold McMillan
The US President was John F Kennedy
The Christmas No. one was Danny Williams with Moon River
The big film was Breakfast at Tiffany's
The average house price in the UK was £2.7k (UK Stirling)
The Berlin Wall was constructed
The first man in space

And
It was also the date my mother gave birth to her 3rd child, a second daughter - me!

Yes, today I celebrate my 50th Birthday!!!


The girls are coming round later for a bit of a shin-dig and i will get my presents then, (I know Jenny has bought me a Pandora bracelet, can't wait to wear it!) I will show you all next time.

We are cooking a joint of pork to have pork & stuffing sandwiches when everyone comes.  
Mark is becoming an expert at making stuffing, he made it for Jo's Christmas dinner and it was very tasty, so I'm going to leave it to him :-)

Speak soon
