Here we are at yet another anniversary for this blog in all of its incarnations. The Bride is now 14 in blog years.
I was 14 in 1976 (if you’re paying attention you may be aware that a significant birthday is on the horizon)
What do we know about 1976?
- some of my favourite acting talent was born in 1976 – Ryan Reynolds, Cillian Murphy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Keeley Hawes & Kelly McDonald;
- it was a leap year;
- the summer Olympics were held in Montreal, and fellow Scot David Wilkie won a gold medal in the swimming pool;
- Agatha Christie died (I remember this vividly);
- the UK won the Eurovision Song Contest with the “classic” Save Your Kisses for Me;
- All The President’s Men & Carrie were released; and most importantly
- Mamma Mia was No. 1 on my birthday. Here I go again….
I may have a small sherry to celebrate later!
