24th May 1979

Thursday 24
General Studies A Level Exam
Exam in the morning = really difficult

In afternoon not so bad

Posted Sam's Mums birthday card

Stayed in and did some of my meat project (no comment !! lol)

Phoned Sam

Miss him xx


As I am sitting here typing I am listening to the Eurovision Song contest which is on in the next room. It has always been a 'must watch' since I could ever remember ... listening to it like this reminds me when I was so much younger and sent to bed before the end and would listen to it under the covers on the radio.

In 1979 it was held on the 31st March when we came 17th (how we got that high in the ratings with that rubbish who knows lol .... see here

I am sitting here and have heard a few 'cattawallings'..... I must say Finland's entry is dire!!

Our entry this year is a boogie about song blasted out by Andy Abrahams ... I do like it, it gets my disco feet tapping ... go Andy go!! (but I feel the Euro political voting may scupper you)



The track has the same effect as it did with me as a really young 'un (5 years old) bouncing up and down on my bed to this Eurovision winner. No I am not going to go and bounce up and down on my bed... but there again???? lol
