13th & 14th January 1980
Woke up at 11.00
Had a walk round the village
I am having my hair permed on Tuesday by Claire (no don't do it!!)
Stayed in all afternoon
Sam did some of his Q.S. (Quantity Surveying) work
He left at 7.30 - boo hoo
He phoned form Lime Street station
Watched 'Ryan's Daughter' = excellent
Washed my hair
Went to bed at 12.00
Got to college at 9.20 cos of stupid trains
Came home at lunch time
Sam rang he said it was snowing heavily there
It's not fair it never snows here
Paid £1 off my jeans (I had an account at the boutique I worked at and for £1/week you could £50 worth of clothes interest free)
Got home at 4.00
Sorted out what I am cooking on Thursday
My brother came home from Copenhagen at 8.00
Wrote off to 8 jobs
Wrote to 'J'
Had a bath
I have joined a night school course tonight (not that I need any more activities really ... I work full time, I have a house to run, I have an art exhibition in March, I blog and my hall, stairs, dining room and kitchen are in need of a lick of paint)
But it is free and it is about chilling .. and gluing and sticking for 2 hours a week ... it is a scrap-booking course.
I already do some of this already but thought I may learn some new techniques .. but my initial reaction after tonight is probably not but the group seem an enthusiastic friendly bunch of gals.
For those of you not familiar with it, it is a way of displaying photographs with added extras. I love digital photography and viewing them on a PC so you can see the finest of detail but I also love looking at photos in an album too.
I started putting old family photos in an album for my Mum when I was off work after my shoulder operation last year.
It looked pretty bland so I did a bit of decoration on a page or two... better but still not good enough.
I intend to start again by scanning all the photos, touching them up a bit and this is my project over the next 10 weeks .. I will let you know the results.
