1st November 1979




Knitting for your dog!! (quite like the pink number ...)
Thursday 1
Got up at 11.00
Sam rang

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
OMG!!

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.............

Benny from Crossroads?

Simon MacCorkindale?

Kind of far fetched. Could it be Leif Garrett?

You'd best tell us now. I'm wondering if the (I am still in awe!) was referring to the actor, or the fact he was your 2nd teen hero.

Dear Frac.....mmm Simon MacCorkindale.. actually I wouldn't mind meeting him ;-)... but no I am afraid it wasn't him ... and Lief does nothing for me

In awe as to actually seeing a teen hero who I had seen in concert a couple of times in the 70s (swoon)
