Story Telling Sunday - A Jubilee tale.
Arriving fashionably late to the party, I bring you a tale from a previous Jubilee celebration. Back in 1977 when the Queen celebrated her Silver Jubilee I was 7. My school celebrated with a summer fete that was Jubilee themed, including a children's fancy dress competition. I don't remember who came up with the idea but it was decided that I would go as a Jubilee bag! I suspect it may have been to do with the fact that my Dad worked in a factory that produced cardboard boxes so had access to large quantities of paper and card.
Apparently I came 2nd! I don't recall much but do remember it was quite difficult to walk in.
My younger brother also entered but he refused to play along with the Jubilee theme and so went as Robin (side-kick of Batman)
Dad created the card from a large cardboard box, built around my brothers trike!
This story was bought to you as part of Sian's story telling Sunday. Do pop over to check out some other great tales.
I hope you have all had a relaxing Sunday and to those of you enjoying an extra long weekend, have a jubileetastic time!
