16th November 1979



Friday 16
Went to Southport
Exchanged my brothers Christmas pressy (the record rack.. I wonder why?)
Got the rest of the wool (I recall that you used to order your wool, they would batch it and you would leave it in the shop to buy when you could afford it)
Met 'J' accidentally
She came for dinner
It really cheered me up (nothing has changed there in 29 years!)
Sam phoned he was in a terrific mood! (erm was that sarcasm?)


My old boy PC is playing up and I am on lappytop, so anything I have scanned is sitting on there not here as this is not set up for the scanner!

Well, all good things come to an end and I am back at work tomorrow. The Monday Blues will be bigger than ever after having been at home for 4 weeks (how fast did that go?) can't even think what I have done in that month, granted 2 weeks were taken up with mind bending painkillers....


There s some sunshine on the horizon though, shortly after I get back to work I will be getting a new team (well 1/1/09 & not before time I can tell you)..


my boss forwarded me this application he recieved last week....

Daddy Papersurfer said...

I also love the pink knitted wig/hat but in a very scared and scarred way ........

Daddy Papersurfer said...

'i'before 'e' except after 'c' - or are you making Brian feel particularly welcome? - tee hee

Mystic Veg said...

Nothing to do with the picture, I stumbled on this website and thought it might be right up your street.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Are you enjoying your last day of freedom? - boo hoo

70steen said...

NM ~ thank goodness it was some eye candy instead lol

70steen said...

NM & DP ~ how coll would it be to have a different knitted hair do every day the possibilities are endless hee hee
with some thoughtful promotion they could be the next hot thing to wear??

70steen said...

DP ~ yep just trying to build up Brian's inner confidence as his 6 pack certainly doesn't need it ;-)

70steen said...

Oh MV ~ you have surpassed yourself ... thank you so very much. I have been laughing my little sox off at the 'kip' of them on there.
I may have to replace knitting patterns with those images :-D

70steen said...

DP ~ BOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO

diane said...

I'm loving Brian. So he can't spell? You have spell check don't you? :D

Bonkers hat.

70steen said...

Diane ~ he is a man after my own heart ... we can misbehave oops sorry mis spell so badly together....

Yep completely bonkers but a great hat all the same lol

John C said...

The hat/wig looks more apt to be crotchet work, rather than knitwear.

So pink even I can tell. :)

...ignore the man behind the curtain.

Please?

Daddy Papersurfer said...

John is soooooo in touch with his feminine side.

[Hugs - just this once! - as you return to work]

John C said...

DP's just jealous I can pull off being a bitch online better than he can.

('Bitch' meaning 'female dog', akin to puppies, which are cute, cuddly, irresistable...like knitted hats.)

70steen said...

John ~ I am impressed with your knitting v crochet knowledge ... you have obviously been paying attention to all the patterns these past few months

Do i really need to stay away from the guy behind the curtain? ;( can't I just take a 'ickle peep?

70steen said...

thanx DP :-)

70steen said...

boyz, boyz, boyz...... put your handbags down *snigger*

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Higher him!

Daddy Papersurfer said...

He's high enough already ......

[Just popped by to make sure you survived the first day back ..... it'll be downhill all the way now .....]

John C said...

He (points to DP) started it!

I never get high. Maybe a bit stoned from proper medication, but that's expected.
