8th January 1979

Monday 8
Back to college = ok (ish)
Got a letter off Sam
Wrote him back

Social Services was cancelled (this was part of my Food and Nutrition A'level curriculum. It was quite intensive, the cooking was fine but not so fine was the chemistry of food and social care.... a living nightmare.)

My brother = home from Iran, Dubie (ok I know it's Dubai !!) & Frankfurt.
Mum is so happy (I bet she was! Being a Mum myself now I know just how worrying it would have been for her. But me as a Teen.... yes I was worried a bit but it meant I could hang out in the lounge without being chucked out by him. It was quite horrid at times being the youngest of 3 with 2 older bro's)
Sam phoned

Petrol Strike is nearly over hurray (all part of the Winter of Discontent)



Any way never mind the Winter of Discontent... here we have the fore runner to internet dating 'Dial a Boyfriend'. It is so funny you can even cut out a hair style for your lucky boy ..... the worrying thing is and many of you may not know this but in the 1970's Daddy Papersurfer was a model. I can certainly see the resemblance can you???
