20th, 21st & 22ndMarch 1980

Thursday 2o
Got up at 8.00
College at 9.00
Got our reports (mmm don't seem to have kept them... I wonder why? I probably burnt it before I got home as my attendance was shocking!!)
came home at 3.30
Sam rang in the evening = ok
Got applications for the Nat West and Yorkshire Banks (I never became a banker btw. I do however, have a soft spot for the Yprkshire Bank as they were the only bank in the 70s that would give my young widowed Mum a loan for central heating ... wtg YB)

Friday 21
Went to college at 12.00 for an hour (now that was not worth getting out of bed for)
It snowed = freezing
Got home at 3.00
Did cookery frieze all afternoon
Sam phoned me at 8.30 before he went out
Watched TV all night
Watched 'The Pit and the Pendulum'

Saturday 22
Work 9-6
Thick snow - hot in the afternoon
Had a very, very busy day
Sam is at Oulton Park
Home at 6.45
Sam phoned at 7.15
Washed my hair and went for a drink at the Railway in Formby
Sam phoned at 11.30
He was fed up and said we should finish cos we weren't getting anywhere because of the distance etc
I hope it doesn't come to that!!

So in 1980 we had thick snow in 2009 we have had glorious Spring sunshine but I did wake up to frost and definite chill in the air all day today.

Today/tomorrow (depending on time zones ) is Mothers Day in the UK... so I wish all the Mothers out there a VERY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.. may you you put your feet up, have breakfast in bed and be appreciated for all that you do & smell the flowers :-)

Oh and Nurse Myra I almost forgot... I promised you a 70s carpeted bathroom .. shagpile rools lol !!

Oh good, the beginning of the end with Sam - about time too. I knew it was doomed from the start.

Mother's Day! of course. You're a mother aren't you? - any chance of bringing me breakfast in bed? and doing the laundry? - thanks

Happy Mother's Day,have you seen that bizarre Neko Case video over at Long Tall Animals ? DP's got nothing to do with making that, has he, he was at the turps again you know ?

BTW 70s, I just realised I missed something in your 18th March post. Does this mean we can expect a 'Diary of a hexadecimal obsessive' alter ego ?
Hope you and your Mum had a nice day on the coast, you DID do the washing up for her didn't you ?
