Went to see 'Beyond the Poseidon Adventure' by myself = ok
(Oh I remember this so well. I sat on my own in a fairly empty matinee cinema and two old dears came and sat right next to me, rustling papers and chewing toffees all the way through it. Why do people do that when they have a huge cinema to sit anywhere????? )

Went to see The Commodores = rubbish (rubbish? All I can think of is that Lionel Ritchie was not with them by then??)

Walked home from Bingley Hall

My knitting patterns are in dire danger! As you know Annie Mouse came to stay for a couple of days ..... under strict instructions form Daddy P she actually tried to set fire to them. Can you believe it .. and she almost succeeded but I was quick with a bucket of water thank goodness I am still slight of foot!! lol

Then a strange thing happened tonight as I was going through my knitting patterns to scan.. I came across these.... blow me the old git has rummaged though my blog further than I thought!!!

i was trying to do 8 at a time, but drat and double drat 70's caught me.

DP you do look rather dashing in that orange number.

The yellow number is that you as a boy?

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Annie - I appreciate your attempt at arson. Perhaps a stealth raid when 70's has passed out from one too many Sanatogens ....... and very spookily, there is quite a strong resemblance to the 'real' me in that yellow number. One day, if I'm feeling very brave [or several sheets to the wind], I might scan a photo or two ......

Daddy Papersurfer said...

....... and 70's, I'll forgive you just this once as I'm still choking, I mean smoking, your most excellent gift ...... now, where are the chopsticks?

70s, is that a dollshouse I see in the background of one of your photos?

'Painted all day' Do you still paint? DP is looking smart in that orange sweater. Ha!

Annie Mouse said...

Maybe october or if not christmas will be my next chance, it was so funny though cos they actually set alight and i went into a panic. tee hee.

70steen said...

Annie ~ just as well I did you can't be trusted with lighted flames ... tsk !!!

70steen said...

DP ~ oh go on you know you want us all to see you (gosh I nearly put 'in the flesh' .... phew glad I didn't post that!!)

70steen said...

NM ~ yes it is an on going project that probably will be finished by the time I have grandchildren hee hee

It is lovely though

70steen said...

SB ~ I am afraid it is not the artistic painting type of painting unfortunately, it was painting a room in his parents house

Do like doing arty stuff though

70steen said...

Annie ~ so that is at least another 50 odd patterns I can publish before you attempt to burn my house down again ... lol

Anonymous said...

it's a gorgeous dollshouse *sigh* I've always wanted one but have neither the time nor space for any more projects

fracas said...


Please 70s... you must warn first. I laughed so hard, I nearly gave myself a hernia on the *other* sde too!

I think DP is most life-like in the grey-sweater photo. And... is that Lo, she is a terrible goddess posing with him? Isn't she lovely... and so able to keep a straight face.

She's a Saint. I've always said it.

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...


Oh DaddyP....where would we all BE without you and your handsome face?!

:) Great photos 70's!

70steen said...

NM ~ I too have so many projects that is why I think I will be a grey haired old lady (DP if you are reading this ... not a word!) before it is finished

70steen said...

Dear Frac ~ oops sorry I should have put a warning up

see he won't be told .. this is what happens when you root in someones drawers.. it's like some spooky facial transfer lol

yes TG is such a saint and total goddess :-)

Olga ~ DP is so Uber photogenic isn't he :-D
