16th & 17th July 1979


a step too far!!!!!
Monday 16
Worked 10.00 - 6.20 = not very busy
Was chief butty maker today (translated I made sandwiches all day. I was usually on ice creams. Making butties was quite cool and I loved the fast heat sealing machine we used lol)
Sam hasn't rung!
Made a button through skirt
I am very tired
He phoned at 11.20
He had been working in the Woolpack


Tuesday 17
Work 10.00 - 6.30
= very hot and humid (I wish! Today it has been cold and wet)
Not that busy
Drew £5.00 out of the bank to get a skirt, but couldn't get one
Fi phoned Dave
I phoned Sam at 7.00
He hasn't phoned back yet
Sam phoned at 11.20 & 11.50
Cos he put the phone down on me
He had been to the pub


Sorry for the internet silence ... I think, however, it bothered me more than my readership lol. All due to my ISP who denied all knowledge it was their fault, told me it was my PC and in a pretty patronising tone .. i.e. I was dumb!! tsk!
No matter I am back now :-)


I wanted to see if there any actual videos about real people in the 70s & by jove there are loads!
This one is a protest about CB radios .. rubber duck looks like we have a convoy.. and all that. I seem to recall there was so
me sort of ban on Cb radios??



Whilst surfing I came across this clip about the borough I live in
Classic the reporter (with a posh voice... must be from
down Souff) says 'I stopped a chap in flat hat' lol I drive down that bit in the opening titles everyday (when I drive into work that is!)




But this must be the best home movie lol ... a Walton House. Oh what fun !!!!!?????


Good Night John Boy

Oh before I go

Love your doodle :) It's raining here, I actually love the rain.

I loved the Walton's too! I've never seen that doll house before...I would have loved that as a kid. Okay, I'd still love to have it.

We've all got posh voices down here don't you know young lady.

I also like your doodle - you should start a postcard range and sell them on the interweave [10% commission please - thank you]

I was born in Manchester but that is one dreadful song. I think it's the school choir (remember 'There's no one quite like Grandma'?) that I find particularly awful or maybe it is the flat cap on the singer....
...Oh my God! I'm turning into a Southern snob....and talking all posh.....I need rescuing!!

Although the weather is much better down here....

70steen said...

D ~ eeewww the Grandma song !! Did you have to. I have shivers up my spine.

I am a NW snob who talks posh... if I can get this mic to hook up you will hear it.. a Northern accent with a twist .. my teen thinks I have a 'vestibule' voice (i.e. say vestibule in the poshest accent you can think of lol)

rescuing ?? Stay where you are I am heading Souff for some sunshine ;-)

I was always partial to Ben. Must be the red hair. LOL. It couldn't be his penchant to be rebellious, now.. could it?
