18th June 1979

Monday 18
Business Studies pm = fair
Cookery am = quite difficult

(from those 2 lines it would seem I
had exams ... what was my mother thinking of letting me go away for a weekend when I had exams?? ... note to self be more tolerant with teen, who I lambasted a few days ago about going out then discovering she had exams the next day!!!)
Me = very shattered today (I bet I was!!)

Bought a book 'The Deep' (it has to be the book of the film released in 1977)

Revised some Sociology
Wrote to 4 banks (I can only think it was for a job?) & Sam

Phoned him but he was down the pub (quelle surprise!!lol)

He phoned back at 11.00 ish

I have discussed with Olga her travelling plans and it looks like she is heading down South to warmer climes at the weekend. The weather in Manchester has turned so cold and rainy (hey that is Manchester's way!) it is not good for Olgas underwires.. they could rust!! As I am at home on Friday and can catch the Post Office open. Her next port of call is at Daddy P's.. god help her.. I hope her mammories are up for the challenge and her elastic remains taut! lol
I will say a fond farewell to my 'perfect house guest'.
The posse will be sad to see her go but they know she may revisit some day. Tomorrow I hope that I can have a leaving do for her .. watch this space !!



Well 70s has been rooting through her 70s annuals tonight and came across this, a photo pic of Stevie Wonder C1975

I love Stevie Wonder he has been with me through out my life it would seem.. he has had a song for every occasion that I have lived through...


In 1979 he released 'The Secret Life of Plants' album (which of course I own)




How cool & chilling was that??





I make no apology.....I am now going to self indulge












Ok I have had my Stevie hit now !! :-)

i really can not stand Stevie wonder, what a terrible thing to say o know but just can't sorry. and i can't even tell you why...

Yikes, I've never met a soul who couldn't dig what Stevie was dishin' out! But, to each his own, I guess...

I'm sure you're sad to see the housemate go. And she's visiting DP? Gutsy move...better tighten the straps and batten down the hatches (what in the world does that figure of speech mean, anyway??

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Oh 70's...I have had the BEST time hanging with you and The Posse!!I'm gonna miss you!

Hey...small defenseless creatures have been known to mysteriously "disappear" from DaddyP's house...so would you mind insuring my package?
Just in case.

I wish someone had told me that Olga was visiting .....tsk.

[Note to self - make up a spare bed and then ........ shussssssh]

You better wrap her up warm - it's a tad chilly in these 'ere parts an' all ........

Drowsey Monkey said...

Geez, why haven't I visited before? I'm so stuck in the 70s! I see you at Olga's all the time. Sheesh.

Loving the blog :)

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Daddy Papersurfer said...

I do hope you will be ok at DPs at least TG is there and she will look after you ..... you have Wimbledon to look forward to :-)

Of course I will insure you... but how much for as you are priceless

70steen said...

DP~ it has warmed up a bit up here. I was thinking of knitting Olga pully but I think sending her with a hard hat may be more appropriate???

70steen said...

70steen said...
