30th August 1979
so cute! I so remember my mum knitting me and my dolly the same outfit :-)
Left Stafford at 9.30 (boo hoo)
Worked 12.00 - 6.50
It was very hot & busy
Phoned Sam at 10.40 pm
He had been out for a meal with his parents
Missing him already
Well the end of my 2nd summer holiday break is drawing to a close..... it has been warm and dry this week but totally over cast, not a ray of sun to be seen. The azure skies of Madrid seem like a dream now :-(
I did what I said I would and caught up with Annie Mouse for a few days, we cleared some of my loft (as I promised I would do) but I have spent a fortune as I have shopped. I changed jobs last year to have more time at home and I still haven't learned that I just don't have the salary anymore for impromptu spending ... my it feels good though, you just can't beat retail therapy lol.
Tomorrow I am hooking up with another friend who I have not seen since Christmas (how awful is that?). I posted I went to her party on 17th March 1979. She and her husband (who I have know since 1977) have just celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary.... you know they are the only couple in my circle of friends that have done the long marriage thing. My friends have either got divorced or married late so their 25 years will be when they are pensioners. I am back at work on Tuesday.
The summer is over here (what there was of it!) and there is that stretch looming towards Christmas.
Anyway onwards and upwards ....it is Saturday night ... came across this Sting & the Police from 1979 and the fabulous track Roxanne (so think Sting is gorgeous)
