December 25 & 26

Monday 25th December 1978
Christmas Day

Got up at 10.30 (oh those days of getting up just as Mum had gone to bed in the early hours had obviously passed. She would have everything ready for us in pillowcases placed carefully at the foot of our beds, a sock stuffed with little pressies together with the mandatory walnuts and satsumas. The coal fire would be lit in the lounge so it would be warm for us when we got up. It was always magic. But yes for my poor Mum who had it all to do would just about get her head on the pillow and we would all be up, so excited, waking Mum showing her what Santa had bought)

Opened my presys:-- Got Cowl neck & 'V' neck jumpers, 2 pairs of sox, 3 pairs of knickers, two underskirts, suspender belt (ooooo!), a diary (now that tells me there was a 1979 record but alas lost), an address book, 'Just Musk' & 'Occur' perfume, 2 pens, makeup bag, a basket & a big teddy
Phoned Sam at 11.00, he got loads of pressies.

Watched 'The Sound of Music' (hey compulsory Christmas day viewing and this is some other stuff we would have been watching)
Made Snoopy a pyjama top
Sam phoned back at 11.00
pm for 5 minutes
Wish i could have spent Christmas with him xx

Tuesday 26th December 1978
Boxing Day
Got up at 10.20

Had a bath & hair wash
Watched T.V.
Sorted out my bedroom

My brother's girlfriend and dad called round with pressies at about 4.30

I got some 'Just Musk' perfume (ooops I obviously must have mentioned I liked it!!)
They left at 7.00
Fi, 'J' & Bev Rang

Watched 'The Day of the Jackal' - saw it 4-5 years ago at the flicks = good
Sam phoned

Really miss him
He said that he had been to watch a footie match this afternoon

2007 Thank you to everyone for their lovely pressies I received this year I am most grateful :-) Just a thought ??? If this happened

Then I suspect we would end up here :-)

Oh, is it all over? - I must have missed it ........

I do remember 'Just Musk' - it was quite nice ......... did it come from a deer's bottom?

Daddy Papersurfer said...

.... or was it from just behind the ears? It's probably quite important.

Oh I knew you would notice .... anyway according to wikiwhatsit...Musk is the name originally given to a substance with a penetrating odor obtained from a gland of the male musk deer, which is situated between its stomach and genitals.

I am sure Lenthric developed it from this :-)
