23rd September 1979

Sunday 23
Got up at 10.30
Went for a long walk around Ainsdale
Had a row with Mar after dinner
She was being pathetic over me & Sam (maybe coz he was sick everywhere yesterday... just a wild hunch... now being the Mum of a Teen I can see how that would wind you up... oh how the tables turn lol)
Went to the Sandhills all day (yes best to stay out of Mar's way!!)
Had an ace time
Sam left at 7.53 (wow we haven't had a precise/ on the second time in a while now)
Tidied my room (still staying out of Mar's way and trying to earn Brownie points too lol)

Well my ISP has been palying the hokey cokey all night tonight. Even my teen has given up and gone to bed and I have the lappy toppy (yeah) ... but boo too as all my scanned stuff etc is on the old boy PC... which will not load to broadband just now (drat).. I have just noticed that I can't sign into Google chat either on lappy..... oh things are not well (come on you guys sort yourselves out I pay you enough.....)

As a consequence I can't post what I wanted to post tonight (no knitting patterns either boo hoo!)

I have just thought ... is the hokey cokey a world wide phenomenon? I know some call it the 'hokey pokey' I am not sure if that is a slightly risque version......?



I do prefer this Kraftwerk version by Bill Bailey though........





went a hunting for 'telephone man' Meri Wilson as I have my phone with the same provider and that is a bit hit and miss just now too and came across this *snigger*

Annie wil you please stop with the christmas shopping reminder.. a terrible thought has crossed my mind I will have to write cards out by 20th Oct ... never ever ever have they been written so soon... but after the 2oth I won't be able to write until after Xmas ..

The crash of thunder and a lightening strike ........

Christmas?!? Egads, surely it's too soon to think about Christmas?? I think I'd rather be doing the hokey pokey (right hand in, right hand out, right hand in and shake it all about ...)
