I'm a 1661 woman - sixteen from behind, sixty one from the front! I'm of the baby boom generation. Loved the fab sixties - which I experienced in London - I was a flower child - thought love would change the world - brought my children up in the country - back in London for the 2nd summer of love in the eighties - danced all night again - wonderful! Now in Devon looking forward to the adventure of old age - bring it on! hahaha

Click with Mick

OK, now I'm definitely in the groove. I'm uploading pics and I'm away.
So, this is one of the Rave magazines that I found on Sunday. There are ten of them for me to read through and I'm keeping a watch for Jeff Beck - you never know, he might well have appeared around that time.
I had a call from my friend this evening. Her boyfriend proposed to her on Saturday and they are going to get married in August. She asked me on Sunday to be her "best woman". On Sunday the wedding was going to be held in Chatham, Kent. The venue has now been moved to Edinburgh.
I am so excited. She is one of my best friends and she's a lovely person. She's had a really tough life but now she has reached forty everything seems to be working out for her.
This is not going to be a traditional, formal wedding - it's going to be a bit wild and fun. But does anyone know - what is a "best woman"s role?

Cool pics of Mick. Excellent old magazine. And those Babycham glasses, I used to have some of those...to die for.

Did you know you can get Babycham shoes now? They are really cute. Put them on your birthday list.

Mick, good looking? Ewwww, no. He got better as he got older though, but still not my type.

Exciting times ahead GOW! Australia! That is so brilliant.

I know, it's only rock'n'roll, but I like it!

Doesn't a best woman have to get the bride very drunk and put her on a train, lose rings and make an embarrasing speech mentioning all of her ex's?

Blimey, I can see why I ran away to Vegas now! :o)

Dons - yes, blimey o'(Ronnie) Riley indeed! Thanks for a lovely day today BTW xxxx

Betty - Babycham shoes?? Wow, what a thing!

RW - Mick got better looking? We obviously have different ideas about mens looks! hahaha

Trac - well the thought of being a best woman sounds better and better, reading your comment - I'll have to work on it - the bride has already emailed me asking me to source bridal hire shops in Edinburgh which stock red bridal dresses - this could be a long (hot)summer!

Hi GOW...is ER on on a Monday? The same one as Thursday? I thought the first showing was on Thursdays? This week was about Pratt going to Africa and a girl with a grandma with dementia - same one?

Sorry about the Dido thing. Please don't sue? I'll make it up to you in the next chapter, I promise.

The wedding sounds fun. We're off to Edinburgh at half term. I'll keep an eye out for bridal shops (I'm not going in any though!!) - red dress. Sounds my sort of a gal!

hmm, not sure I agree with RW either about the age-improvement with MJ. Fab pictures/mags.

The wedding in Edinburgh sounds great (though I thought if you were coming to London we might meet in Greenwich market..... :o( ... )

If you're best woman, don't you get to get off with the bloke you most fancy? other than the groom, of course.
