1st September 1979

September 1
Worked 10.00 - 6.15
We were quite busy

Sam phoned
= not in a very good mood (even today he can ID with this)
Washed my hair and had a bath (when did I last do this in my diary?.... eeeww.. as someone can not start her day without a shower and hair wash today??? I must have bathed more then but maybe I didn't write about it??)



When Annie Mouse was here last week I posted that she helped me sort out part of my loft. When we were rooting I came across a 'Princess Tina' annual dated 1974.



I have only just managed to flick through it tonight and came across this!

Could this be our dear Olga 24 years ago featuring in Peer Gynt before her black lacy phase?? How perky does she look ??




Ah Ha you thought I had forgotten the knitting pattern?
No here it is.
If you can tell me who Johnny Pritchett was..... what prizes he earned as a boxer and what he looks like now ... you could win an extra special prize from 70s posted to your home (no expense was spared when I bought the prizes btw) ;-)

Annie Mouse said...

No idea,....as i know what the prize is. But doesn't he have a look of shriek rooney, his first name has gone out of my mind.

DP ~ what a shame because TG would have loved it!!

I hope you have been giving Wotsit a saucer of milk occasionally ??

Thank you for being nice but you can stop now as it is quite worrying ;-) x

Annie ~ you just knew you had to come back as it is such an adventure in my loft... plus how much money will your school make from the 'tat' you can sell out of there ?? lol :-)

70steen said...

B4by Hi ~ *waving*
Gosh I would dare look up stuff at my work ... it is a case of Big Brother is watching you .....

I did surf Johnny P when I got home and looked at your link... some how I don't think that is our guy.. if it is then he has learned the secret of staying young ... but not attractive lol
