4th September 1979


how on earth do you get that type of hairdo? And why would you be captured on film if you had? Oh and she is obviously a slim gal but that cardi.. OMG!

Tuesday 4
Worked 10 - 6.15
Enrolled at Tech (Technical College) a day late
Had to pay £2.20 (I guess that was a fine for late registration? I was about to enter my 2nd year of A' Levels. I am not sure what that is equivalent to around the world but you studied these from the age of 16 -18. I was taking Sociology, Business Studies and Food and Nutrition. I had aspirations to become a hotel manager! Gosh my teen could have been the next Paris Hilton lol. Lets just say my career path took me no where near that dream!)
Not very busy at the cafe

Phoned 'J'

Fi phoned
Did some social services work (for my Food and Nutrition module
)
Wrote to Sam
Sam phoned at 11.30 after a footy match



Tonight I REALLY have been wading in internet thick unpleasant stuff (my PC has frozen a number of times.. is it my dear old friend or my ISP? Who knows?)

Annie Mouse sent me a couple of vintage photos from the 70s tonight so I thought it cheeky bot to share...... plus here are a few of me too .. published in no particular order!





apart from all that I have a knitting fan... yes I know you may never believe this .. but as they say the camera never lies....;-)

So, the picture of you in orange trousers - you were standing next to 'Sam' and, when things went sour and he, he ........ the b*****d!, you ripped the photo in two and flung his image on the fire having stamped on it first? ......

[I wish I had a tea-cozy to wear on my head ......]

Annie Mouse said...

do you want me to knit you one DP?

Annie Mouse said...

we have both got the same type of skirt on.

scratchbags said...

Geee.. I have got a swollen hand because of over work, silly me.:D Couldn't resist myself from commenting at this one. Mr train knitter is giving me shivers at the thought of what he would be knitting.Is DP not scared at the thought that he may be gifted a similar knitting pattern that the train knitter is wearing?:D you are looking naughty in the first piccy.

Love those bell bottoms! And the window cut on the man at far left can not be beaten! This is, of course, me just voicing frustration at never being able to pull off a window cut myself...(shoulder shrug).

Annie ~ as you can your son in your photo ... can't you just see my teen looking at you from the orange trousered photo of me

oops sorry for stealing your photos but you can put so much more story to them :-)

70steen said...

DP ~ you have sucha vivid imagination... lol
I was only about 14 then so it was pre Sam

70steen said...

Annie ~ was going to suggest the same but as you are a betterer knitter than me you can have the honours lol

Oh yes very simliar skirts and I hadn't spotted the school tie ..

70steen said...

SB ~ I think DP would look rather dashing in that outfit don't you think??

Me 'naughty?'... hee hee always ;-)

Stop working so hard it is the weekend

Rev ~ those orange pants were the most favourite pair of trousers ever...... loved 'em :-)

What is a 'window cut?' I have never heard that phrase before !!!

Annie Mouse said...

oh yes without doubt teen is you.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

I'd look like a tea-strainer .....

70steen said...

Tea strainers can look cool in certain circumstances (I am wracking my brain to conjure up an example.. I am sure I will........... eventually )

nursemyra said...

so which bridesmaid are you? second from the left?

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Dig those ORANGE pants! Woo-Hoooo! And look at your cute little happy faces in the 2nd picture! Awwwww....

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Just testing...I posted my comment & heard some weird clicking sounds...?!?!? Is it a bomb? Hope not!....trying again!!!

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Phew! Obviously not!
Never mind.....

70steen said...

good guess NM ...... but that is Annie Mouses photo and that is Annie Mouse :-)

70steen said...

Olga you have heard clicking on here before ..... how very odd. Maybe it is some kind of death watch beetle that only bras can hear??? :-)

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

ACK! I hope NOT!!! It was probably just DP fartin' around in here...AGAIN!!!

70steen said...

he does tend to lurk about in the shadows .... I think it maybe his 'falsies' chattering lol :-)
