24th November 1979

Saturday 24
Sam in Manchester to watch footy
Worked 9-6 £7.00 wages
Stayed in all night
Haven't heard from Sam
Fi phoned

I am off to London tomorrow for a meeting. It will be a pretty long day leaving home at 7.30 and probably not getting home until 21.00. I must say that the trains to London now from Manchester are ace ... 2 hours 10 minutes. Better than flying as my feet are no more than about 4 foot off the ground.
I am also going to Horse Guards for the first time ... I am quite excited really (I am like a big kid!!) .. must remember my camera....

Today I was tagged. Yes I don't normally do them but there again I can't resist a challenge particularly as I have to challenge my tired grey cells to think of some stuff. I do think I may have weakened and done a similar tag before... but what the hell!!

The tag was from the loverly tNb at Atomic Dogma .. I am still reeling a bit as tNb reckons I understand Boney M?? I understand the shudders that go down my spine when I see the male singer in silver pants ... I can tell you it is NOT a pleasant shudder... eeeeew

If you can now focus after that horror.. the tag is

7 Things About 70s

1. I am really a big softy and cry at Lassie films, animal hospital, etc EVERYTIME. No matter how many times I have seen them

2. I once did a strip-o-gram for a leaving top executive were I worked because some one dared me

3. I now wear flat shoes more than I wear high heels (sob...)

4. I can not go out the house with out at least applying a touch of mascara (if left on a desert island that is what I would take with me)

5. I once owned a black jaguar car .. had to sell it. Sold it to tinkers for cash and next day had the police knocking on my door to say it had been used in a robbery (it was such a beautiful car too with chrome bumpers ... ahhh!)

6. I part own a hotel in Germany which we want to sell (any tinkers out there willing to pay cash lol)

7. I have a thing about stationery and craft type stuff ... (put me a shop that sells it and I am like a kid in a sweet shop.. oh B&Q warehouses have a similar effect... lol)

So now I have to tag 7 others. Normally I would just say help yourself but on this occasion I am going to select bloggers

Sylvie - because she is loverly and I think she may like to do it :-)
Olga - because she is a bra and bra's love this type of stuff
Dear Frac - as she is on her sick bed and want to keep her mind racing
Claire - coz she is a fellow Liverpudlian although she is from Widnes
Diane - coz she is a 'game' Norvern lass but living down Souff
Nurse Myra - as I would love to see her take part .. NM is worse than me with tags
John C - well OMG who knows what we may get, but it would be fun ;-)


Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

"Bra's love this type of stuff!" Thta's NEWS TO ME!!!!!!
Oh, alright....will do on my way from Norway to....whereEVER it is I'm going next! (hee-heeeeee!)

Do you have any pics of the strip-o-gram? Or maybe you could just paint us a picture?

fracas said...

Oh my word! I can't possibly compete. You've been quite the rowdy, haven't you fraccy sis?

I shall try.

And you know... I'm afraid to read John's!

sorry sweetheart I'm gonna have to pass on this one. but you should definitely blog more about numbers 2, 5 and 6. I want details!

Nothing wrong with doing a strip-a-gram at work. Happens all the time around here.

I would try and help with the hotel but I am breaking for the border in a couple of weeks...

I got to the sentence that mentioned Horse Guards Parade which reminded me that the beach volleyball competition is going to be held there in 2012 and couldn't quite manage to concentrate for the rest of the post ..... you had a black jaguar cat!!!?!!!!

70steen said...

Olga I knew you would join in ... it is better than doing suduko when travelling ...
No pictures of me doing strip- o- gram that I have (not to say there aren't some somewhere in the world) There are pictures of me doing the management to staff Christmas entertainment OMG

70steen said...

Dear Frac .. mm yes I have been wild at times .. I think me problem is if some one says 'you would dare' it has been like light the blue touch paper

Glad to see you have been refrained over at Johns place ... looking forward to the post though :-D

70steen said...

he hee NM 2, 5, 6... may well be featured along the way (I hoped I could tempt you but I understand x)

70steen said...

Somn... really you have regular strip-o-grams wow the world of high finance is not as dull as they taught me at Uni then??

p.s. bad time to sell I know... which border btw or is that secret ?

70steen said...

DP I said car .. only after I had checked the spelling in my post(doh!)

not sure that volleyball in Horse Guards will have the same effect as beach volley ball in steaming hot temps.. but I have just thought of one male advantage with the cold weather here .........!

fracas said...

Ok, dear fraccy sis... I have finally managed to get to the post office box and am here with bells on to gush and mwah and all that stuff for the timeliest gift anyone ever sent. Mr. Frac is away for a few days, and what you sent is absolutely perfect. I intend to blog about it tomorrow (tee hee). You must find time to check and see just how thrilled I really and truly was!

XO to you. You're definitely in the will! ;-)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Shrunken willies!!!? .... oooo, you mean perky ..... well ..... you know ......

diane said...

Ooh thanks! No's 3 and 7 would be o my list too. I've done similar tags before but suffice it to say I am still sufficiently weird to do 7 more.... :)

Somnambulist said...

We're still deciding whether to head North or South... watch this space!

70steen said...

well done Diane I look forward to your sufficiently weird 7 revelations ;-)

70steen said...

Somn - good luck... which ever choice you make will be the right one ... I like positive thinking ;-)

70steen said...

Dear Frac I actually thought about it today and thought it was surely lost across the pond ... I was going to e mail you this evening to tell you what it was .. coz as we know you were confused at my cryptic messaging hee hee

Soooo glad you like it and it raised a smile :-)
will pop over and see what you have posted x

fracas said...

Well, I learned yesterday that I am not quite recovered yet.. and as a result nothing got posted. With Mr. Frac gone, I had a fair bit of running around to do what with errands and children and sports... and it quite did me in!

I'll be at it as soon as the fraccy family gets fed. I'm chuckling just thinking about it again...
