17th September 1979
ok what is that head scarf/ear muff about? Oh and matching sweaters too albeit in different colours .. you can't fool me lol
Sam went to work at 8.50
I got up at 10.00
Met him in Stafford for dinner
He bought me a chicken salad
Got the train home
Bought a jumper from C & A £2.15
Went to night school 6.45 - 9.00 pm = good (now you will laugh.. it was a typing and shorthand course. Being in the top stream at school I never was allowed to do typing etc. So I took it upon myself to take up the 'art'.... I may have said I thought it was good then .. but I recall later I hated it ... particularly the shorthand. The tutor was so unforgiving, most of the class were on a refresher where as I was new to the 'dark art'. It was like learning a new language! All I need to do today when taking minutes/quick notes is to write fast in my scribble along with MSN/text speak .. for example '2' , 'B4' , 'fwd' 'w8in' , l8r.... in 1979 that was not invented.......)
I was going to post a Wonderous Wednesday post but after last weeks post it had left the Rev in a complete trauma ... and Drowsey Monkey 'does it so well' I am not going to continue.. but I urge you (well the female readers) to pop along to Drowsey place for your 'Hump Day Fix'
came across this tonight .. a quiz about 1979. I hope that link works if not click here & page down to the quiz.
I got 80% .. I lost on the price of milk increase and how people managed to flee from East to West Germany over the Berlin Wall (hey I thought pole vaulting was a great answer)
