4th & 5th February 1980

Monday 4
College at 9.00
Had a real 'can't be bothered' day (hey it was a Monday it is allowed! But maybe I didn't realise that yet!!)
Went swimming 11 -12.30
Walked back to college in freezing sleet.
Its a wonder I don't have pneumonia? (born to blog with that dramatic vent!)
Got home at 5.00
Worked all night.. did Business Studies and got all my Sociology together
Went to bed at 10.15 (OMG .. in bed at a reasonable hour and NO mention of Sam that has to be a first!!)

Tuesday 5
College at 10.00
Feel a lot happier today
Skived cookery as it was only a demo on sauces (lol, yes who needs to know about how to make sauces when there is 'Home Pride cook in sauces' I could obviously see the future beyond making a rue!)
Did a test in Business Studies
Got home @ 3.45
Sam rang @ 4.45
Spoke to him til 5pm
He hasn't rung back
Fi rang
Phoned Bev but she was out
Revised 'The Family' (no it wasn't this )
Watched T.V.
******************************
as you know this is the Snoopy Diary from 1980. Daily, Snoopy and his mates feature on each page .. unfortunately my scanner/ printer/Fax (3 in 1) is not behaving.
I just love this statement from Snoopy on the 4th Feb


'Every night I have my supper in my red dish and my drinking water in my yellow dish ... tonight I'll have it just the opposite..... Life is too short not to live a little '
How brilliant lol

On the 4th February 1980 saw the first episode of 'Take the High Road' . It was a kinda Scottish Coronation Street/ Emmerdale Farm /Crossroads where you lived the characters and all was set in a fictional Scottish village. I can't believe it ran up until 2003 ... but I must confess I was addicted to it in the 80s and caught glimpses of it in the 90s.
It had a village shop (for local people, the feeling that outsiders were simply not welcome into the small close-knit community.. I wonder if this where 'A League of Gentlemen' got their idea from??) .. a lady laird and so on.
Superb viewing with Isabel (my g grandmothers name who was from Scotland) and a Moira



Talking of 'soaps' I am seriously thinking of keeping a soap star diary.. near enough on a daily basis I pass Coronation Street stars ambling by .. yesterday I saw 'Lloyd' with 'Steve Mcdonald'.. I have also seen 'Fiz', 'Maria' etc (note to self.... mmm get a life lol)
