A Song for Sunday

A Song for Sunday is a chance for me to find my favourite songs and post them on my blog.

When I was a young teen I went to Summer School. It was a Quaker Summer School run at the country's oldest and most famous Quaker boarding school,
Friends School Saffron Walden.
I loved my time there so much that I actually asked my mum if I could go to proper school there. The answer was no, surprisingly!

Like Quaker Camp, previously mentioned on this blog, Summer School was a fantastic chance to holiday with people the same age and with the same interests. I even had a boyfriend, Andreas, and I had girlfriends to chatter and giggle with.

At the end of the fortnight, there was a disco and every year a Disco King and Queen were crowned.

I had always loved dancing. As a child I had dressed up and danced for my parents, and as a teen I had studied all the latest moves from
Pan's People to make sure I was the coolest Disco Queen. At regular school discos I was far too nervous to dance in front of my peers, but I did love dancing.

I won! Not only did I win, but the school heart throb was crowned King. So I got to dance with the hottest boy in Summer School...to this......



Just for one night - I was a Queen.....a Dancing Queen.....

ps - awwwwwww - wasn't Benny just the CUTEST???

Those were the days! ABBA! I use to just sleep on the couch listening to the radio while I was a kid, and always loved it when they played this song!

Never was a King, but felt like it with my tunes and my dreams.
