Yes, this month I am combining two things! Not only is it Story Telling Sunday 2 today, telling a story with words and/or pictures, but I am also going to Pass the Book!
First, the story. Story Telling Sunday is hosted by Sian - over at From High in the Sky and if you pop on over to her blog when you have finished my story you will find links to loads of other stories.
My story is very much linked to the book I am passing. So, actually, I have to talk about both things together!
Life in the Slow Lane is a non-fiction book about a group of girls, growing up through their teenage years in the 80's in mid America and how they are still all good friends. I haven't made that sound very interesting! However, it is a fascinating read and spending my teenage years in the 80's with a great group of girlfriends it really made me think and remember what good times we had.
In all, there were sixof us in our group, Kirsteen, Nikki, Mandy, Ann, Jane and myself. The last time we were all together was at a high school reunion back in 2006 and when we got together it was just like old times and we didn't stop talking all evening! In fact, we met up again about 2 months later as we had so much catching up to do. Unfortunately after that, Nikki went to the States and Mandy to Australia and we lost contact.
Are you still in touch with any school friends?
If you would like to go into the draw for the book (and be prepared to pass it on once you have read it) please let me know in your comment below and I will try to remember to make the draw on Sunday 9th June.
Happy Sunday to you all! We are spending today holding our family party to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary and my parents' golden wedding anniversary. I should have about 40 people in the house (hopefully it will be sunny and we will be in the garden) this afternoon and we will all be having a wonderful time, whilst the rest of the UK celebrates the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Whatever you are doing have a wonderful time and may the sun shine on you!
