19th April 1979

Came back here at lunch time

Bought £3.00 material for a jacket

Phoned Sam

Started jacket (oh my I wonder what disaster that was??)

You just couldn't make it up could you?

Also from the same film but done in lego (sooooo clever) - the French Taunter ... classic last line hee hee

I still haven't seen the Holy Grail - and we were given a boxed set of all the Python films a couple of years ago - what's that all about? ..... don't ask me.....
