Mother Love

Three important celebrations today.

It's Mothering Sunday here in the UK.

Our clocks have gone forward, so it's officially British Summer Time - yay!

And Miss Shirley Jones - whose career took her from grieving ingénue in Carousel to matriarch of The Partridge Family - will be 80 years old tomorrow.

Here is a rare piece that suits the "Sunday mood" - Miss Jones' magnificent version of The Sound of Music:

And here is a clip of Miss Jones (playing second fiddle again to the gorgeous David Cassidy) with The Partridge Family, and an appropriate number for today:

We were privileged back in 2010 to see Shirley Jones in her one-woman show - read all about it - and we were pleased to note her voice was still a force to be reckoned with.

Shirley Mae Jones (born 31st March 1934)


  1. Charming, but oh dear, those white pumps.

    1. They'd cost a fortune to buy in a vintage shop in Camden these days! Jx

  2. Meanwhile, David's back in rehab.

    1. And nowadays looks like a very old Lillian Gish reflected in a spoon. Sad, really. Jx

  3. Oh David. I still love him.
