Coming soon (part 2) …

New for 2014 – 70s Saturday

70s Saturday

Every Saturday I will be posting about the same week from 40 years ago – 1974. It’ll be a groovy, glam rock look back at all the great things happening in the world that year, as well as in my own life. It was the year I turned sixteen, left school and started work. So what happened, and how do I feel about the sixteen year old me? Have I changed? What was I wearing? Actually what WAS I wearing!!! As we can see here, the year began with Slade at the top of the charts with their Christmas song when it was all brand new, my haircut cost 42 and a half pence and the country was in the grip of power cuts. What happened next? Come back on Saturdays and find out.

Welcome to my blog where I am enjoying meeting my family - past and present - one at a time. Join me as I learn who my ancestors were, where they lived, what their occupations were and what everyday life was like for them.

    42 1/2p for a haircut, that really is a bargain! I look forward to hearing more about the year 🙂 x
