Monday 16th October
College 9.00
Sam met me at 1.00
Tried on a pair of ankle boots at Russell and Bromley they are £13.99 = very smart (although £13.99 doesn't seem like a lot now it was quite a bit for me to afford then and I think they must have been the cheapest boots in the shop ..... you can see by the web site how expensive they are today. I spotted the most beautiful pair of court shoes in the window of the Manchester branch last week... £125 ...... mustn't go passed there again because they were saying 'buy me!!')
Sam got the 5.05 (sorry!) train to Stafford
Couldn’t help crying when he left

my mum used to make the best roly poly pudding though she called it baked jam roll.

(not the same mother who sent me the bum for halloween - I had two mothers)

hey have you still got a copy of your essay on vinegar?

some gourmet vinegars cost big bucks these days. they're almost a fetish item!
