1st November 1979
Knitting for your dog!! (quite like the pink number ...)
Got up at 11.00
Had a bath
Stripped paper off bookcase in the lounge (hey I guess we were coming out of the 70s and a wallpapered bookcase was just not 'in'...... but was it ever 'in'???) Sam rang again at 11.00 pm
Look forward to seeing him tomorrow
My dairy today 1st November 2008
Got up at 9.00
Surfed the net
Put washing in
Had a long bath, washed my hair
Got the 12.46 train into Manchester
Met up with a good friend
Went to Manchester Art Gallery
Saw a load of great art including a brilliant Holman-Hunt exhibition (I was haunted by this painting which I hate with a passion)
Also saw a fabulous display of buttons (I so love buttons, they even had a Donny button.. )
Went to get the 17.43 train home
Passed the Palace Theatre
Saw a crowd gathered at the 'stage door'
Was it ~Mary Poppins'?
No it was someone in my teen years who was second to Donny
A woman (a complete stranger) grabbed my arm (unfortunately it was my right one ... ouch and double ouch!)
'come on girl get over here' and she pushed me to the front
I stood 2 feet away from him
I thrust the programme I had picked up from the Art Gallery in his direction
He signed it and smiled
Bought a bottle of wine from Sainsbury's for the firework party I am going to.
Kissed my good friend farewell.
Caught my train home (with a load of man united supporters... tsk!)
Went to firework party (great hotpot!!)
now writing this.............
So who was my 2nd teen hero?
mmmm I will let you guess and will tell you tomorrow ........... maybe!! ( I am still in awe!)
