Got up at 9.15 Stayed off college cos of a cold (sounds like a 'duvet day' to me ... although it would have been 'woolly blanket and flannelet sheet day' then, mmm? just doesn't have the same ring to it somehow?)
Sam phoned at 1.30
I also got a letter off him and I wrote back
Fi phoned after college
Sam phoned again in the evening
He was really chatty as his parents were out (it was a time when you had one phone in the house, usually situated in the lounge and cordless phones were a thing of dreams!!)
So what would you invent? In the 70s yes I would have desired some privacy as in a cordless phone!
But I am voting now for Fran Lane, Bristol & Sue Burton, Birmingham
but above all Belen Lewis, Wilts who said
'I'm hopeless at spelling so I'd rather like to invent something like a spelling calculator; for instance, you would say a word like Unitarian into a microphone and the machine would spell it out for you.'
