16th February 1979

Friday 16
Cleaned the cookers at college today (Oh they were trying hard to make me into a domestic goddess!!)
Met Sam walking down the road at 8.00 on my way to babysitting

They are dead nice people

Got £2.00 (scarily that baby will be 30 now!! eeek!)

Got home at 12.30am

Really love Sam even if he don't like my hair! (see I knew it was a mistake getting a curly perm)

Well Spring is almost here & thoughts turn to sunny days and new beginnings... even bird watching!
The Judy Annual of 1979 even suggests making your own bird box for the garden

'Here's how to make a simple (SIMPLE??) nest-box'

(yes if you knew how to saw wood with out taking off your fingers as a teen.... no power tools that a girlie could lift in those days ...... needless to say it wasn't done & I stuck to what I knew, boys, make-up and disco dancing )

You are a domestic goddess!!!! ..... what with your grouting skills and all .........

Boys, make-up and disco dancing ... sounds like a very full cirriculum with unspoken benefits for the years ahead! Much more useful than making a birdhouse anyway ;-)

did you have to clean the ovens because you made a mess with the raspberry mousse biscuits?

DP ~ grouting and making pastry... very similar in the results. Awful to get out of your nails lol

tNb~ amazing how your views change as you get older, I would quite fancy a bird box in the garden now (& I have just the power tools to make one lol) ...... but it would just be like providing wild fresh food for the cats

NM~ I expect you are spot on there.... Teen's and cooking what a mess, I think cleaning up as you go along comes on much later in the learning process (have to bear that in mind after my teen has been experimenting!!) lol

tNb said...

well yes, that's true. how about disco dancing in the garden then?

Yep disco dancing in the garden is a great suggestion .... now where can I hang my glitter ball????
