16th 17th October 1979

&
you know I saw some ponchos for sale in this wool just the other week... frightening (Annie Mouse will vouch for me on this)!!
Tuesday 16
College at 10.00
Made liver and orange etc = yuk (yes no matter how you dress up liver, liver is still yuk.. don't know what the etc was though?)

Bought a black velveteen handbag = perfectly trendy (was that sarcasm?
I have no idea?)

Phoned Sam but he was at footy
Granny = still the same
Phoned Uncle George (yes I was 17 and I had to phone my uncle (my dads brother, my Granny's 2nd son, in California as my Mum is so shy and was uncomfortable make the call. The last time I had spoken to him was in 1965 ish when he and his family left the UK for a new life in America.. I remember the call very well as I had expected to hear an English accent but was met with a very American one.. it was all very bizarre for a teen)

Wednesday 17
Played volleyball this afternoon
Boring day at college
Watched TV all night

Rang Sam at 11.00


I picked up a copy of 'The Week' a couple of weeks ago and only got round to reading it today on the train... (great publication btw)
My oh my the Germans have the right idea about knitting

Under the heading 'IT MUST BE TRUE... I read it in the tabloids'

An 89 year old vandal from Germany has been sentenced to knit sweaters for her victims.
Heidi Kohl was caught slashing the tyres of a dozen cars, because she felt too many where being parked in her neighbourhood.
She was fined , but as she has no money, offered to knit jumpers instead.
"when she has knitted the sweaters, the matter wil be over for us" said prosecutor Helmut Bleh

When I was at my posh preparatory school .... oh yer .... liver was served on a Wednesday. I always took a spare kerchief to put it in. I was caught once and was forced to eat it [the liver ..... not the hanky!!!]

Liver and orange?!?!? Liver and orange?!?!? *shudder*

My mum knitted me a tank top in very similar wool. By the time she'd finished it, no one was wearing tank tops any more but I still felt morally obliged to wear it. The shame!

Wish she'd stuck to slashing tyres instead.

I LOVE liver and bacon. It would be my death row meal, liver, bacon, mashed potatoes, onion gravy....I am salivating just writing it.

Liver and orange though.....
