1978 November 2007

As I have caught up in months to this one I thought it would be interesting (to whom? Who knows? & will it work? Who knows?) to keep a diary during November and see how it compares to 29 years ago. There will be some personal stuff omitted as it would not be fair on those involved plus I would blush lol
