15th, 16th & 17th January 1980

ermmm! I think my 2 bothers may agree with that !!

Tuesday 16
2 years 1 month (the amount of time Sam & I had been dating)
Went to college for 10.00
Sent loads of applications for jobs
Skived Business Studies
Came home at 5.00 = knackered
I suggested I would like a canary
Mums fella took me to Formby & I got one for nought (quick translate .... nothing)
cos he knew the man
He's (the canary) is a scruffy brown canary called ... BASIL!! (I named him after Basil Fawlty from Fawlty Towers)
Phoned Sam to tell him
he thought it was so funny
Basil is my pressy of my brother
Now Basil looked a little like this but with way more brown. I loved the fragile bones of him. He tweeted so loud when I walked in the room and if I had toast would go mental.

Wednesday 16
Washed my hair before college (god I do that every day now .. wash my hair oh and shower before work!)
Chatted to Basil (yep I was crackers then too)
Walked around town for an hour
Bought a bird cage and cookery stuff
Went to Fi's all afternoon
She drove me home ... GULP!! (had she passed her test??)
Did some Sociology
= difficult essay 'Is Sociology Inevitably Ideology?????'
Sam phoned
Chatted for about 10 minutes
He is at Market Drayton on Friday

Can't believe I still have this essay (I blame my Mum when she cleared out her loft of stuff .. I expect my Teen will be saying the same in 30 years lol) However, I must agree with Sir Keith Joseph in the 70s in some of what he said ,, although I have no political persuasion at all ............. maybe it is being middle aged I now agree? Anyway I got a B for this essay ..

Thursday 17
Cooking at 8.30 this morning = knackered
Came home at 4.30
Did some copying up of work
Phoned Sam 3 x but the house was empty
4th time his mum said he was out at the pub
He phoned back at 11.00
he was in a very obnoxious mood
It annoys me when he is like that (good you are learning!! )

your site is behaving really strangely with my computer. It's kind of stretching and jumping all over the place. I wonder if it's because I've started using chrome as my new browser....?

Maybe if you removed the snow? Isn't it bad luck to keep Xmas decorations up too long?

I think the most amazing part here is that you shower & wash your hair before work each day!

I barely have the time to drag myself out of bed and brush my teeth before dashing out the door (in true Dagwood fashion).

Kudos to you!
