24th October 1979

Wednesday 24
Letter of 'J' ('J' was now at Manchester University studying art... how envious was I?)
Skived off recreation to do Sociology essay

Couldn't finish it though
Dungarees I ordered arrived = nice - cost £11.79
(the scary thing is I think they were these...OMG... looking at the straight legs these were definitely late 70s!!)

Phoned Sam His sister has passed her driving test

Knitting 80s style

I was going to make some wise crack comment about 'what is with her hair!' Then remembered this 80s photo.............

Mind you it was a great style ... just wash 'n' wear .. unlike now where I spend ages in the morning straightening and styling and by the time I get to the train station it looks worse than that .... lol

i think they look fab, careful now though you don't want to be in DP's and the man from the zoo's overall club.

love the dungarees and the hair. but please stop scaring me with the knitting patterns

Ooooh, thanks for reminding me about wash and wear hair! I tried several times and always ended up with some godawful shaggy perm. Hardly an improvement over my Dorothy Hamil years ...

That dress is knitted?? How clingy and static-y would that be? And the neckline on that guy's sweater!!! Or is it the buttons? Either way, just NO.

Oh Annie I would love to see that photo... pop it up on your blog :-)

I had forgotten about the boiler suited man at the zoo hee hee

lol NM ~ I thought my images were far scarier than the knitting .....
great corset Friday btw .... thank goodness I only occassionally take part in the t-shirt Fridays .... otherwise we would be talking 'scary' ;-)

tNb ~ and you reckon my photo isn't 'some god awful shaggy perm'!! lol

I think that one I had up there was supposed to be a sophisticated spiral perm .... hee hee

70steen said...

oh p.s. Dorothy Hamil hair do .... rofl ;-)

70steen said...

Diane ~ I know ... just how long would that take to knit and imagine the baggu bottom after you had sat in it for a while ... not to mention the itchy scrathy feeling.

Yes a defo NO to any man with buttons on his shoulders......

tNb said...

Oh, you just had to bring up the spiral perm ... most traumatic hair experience of my life!

70steen said...

hee hee you where traumatized??
I ended up looking like Carlos Valderrama .. without the moustache I hasten to add lol
