We learn where Cathy was when JFK was assassinated, how she tried to subdue her naturally curly hair with sellotape in an effort to copy Twiggy's hairstyle and of the fun she had on her trip to Wales with the Girl Guides even though conditions were fairly basic. Cathy tells us about her holiday jobs, why we might want to follow her example of never sending food back to the kitchen in a restaurant and reveals why the book is called 'Jam for Tea' (hint: there is a canine influence).
One of my favourite reminiscences has to be the story of Cathy's mother attending a wedding reception wearing a dress made out of the new one hundred per cent man-made fabric, Crimplene. In the crowd, her mother was pushed against a heater then spent the rest of the evening with her back turned away from the other guests so that no one would see the large brown scorch mark on her bottom!
There are charming glimpses of the future too, for example the vignette of Cathy and her father dressed up in their wedding outfits, playing piano duets at home while waiting for the ancient Bentley to arrive and take them to Cathy's wedding. These hints of what is to come whet our appetite for the next installment of Cathy's life story. More please, Cathy!
I have no doubt that children of today will look back on their own childhood fifty years from now with similar nostalgia!
The title “Jam for Tea” becomes even more appropriate when a sweet little back story is revealed and this spirit of fun shines throughout this short but very enjoyable memoir.

A nice book to read over a cup of tea and a biscuit. No analysis required, nostalgic and easy to read. Pleasant but not challenging or thought provoking.Published 4 months ago by Debbie Leigh
This book was ok, but I was hoping for a bit of humour like other anecdotal books I have read, this was slow and quite bland in comparisonPublished 5 months ago by Esther
