Due to my absence I won't write all my dairy entries for the 6 days I will just snip out bits & give a brief outline
It seems I skived the morning off college as I over slept. Strolled in there at 2pm and came home at 4.45... what a stressless Monday!!
I had my interview at Marks & Spencer. The interview was 1 1/4 hours long the woman interviewing was' masculine & bullying in a way .. I don't really know if I want the job anyway' Just as well as I didn't get it!! Wrote to Rolls Royce and International Stores for jobs too
I had my interview at the Midland Bank ... now I hoped I got this post ... but alas no I didn't ! Made quiche lorraine for tea and tidied my bedroom
Actually went to college on time on this day only to get the bad news I only got 33% for my mock Sociology (of course the real exams I thought I was taking were mocks doh!!) Made a time plan for Food and Nutrition and washed my clothes to go away
Managed to go to college for an hour and worked for 2 hours (Got £2... OMG £1 an hour!!). I went to Stafford and we went to see the 'Photos' at Stafford Polytechnic but they weren't on so saw the 'Electronics' instead and apparently they were 'crap!'
Got up at 12.00 & went to Stafford shopping. In the evening we went to 'Cinderella, Rockerfellas' night club ... 'good but expensive'
My how fast has my week off work gone... mind you I have been dashing around between the North West of England and Herefordshire... I have eaten out every day and not cooked a single meal .. so that is a result in itself.....
OK back to the 80s from Mode Avantgarde published in 1980 I found an article about shops in Manchester. I moved to Manchester C1985 and worked as a manager in a major department store at the time... sadly they don't have stores anymore.
The opening statement of the article says 'What Manchester does today, the rest of the country does tomorrow'
That quite surprised me as I never thought of Manchester being a fashion icon city then.. it certainly has that feel about it now though. The statement was qualified with the information that Manchester came up with the idea of free trade upon which Victorian prosperity was based... the city boasts the first canal, the firsy railway, the first civic aerodrome and the first computer.... Rutherford split the atom here and the first Rolls Royce was made!!
What a great menu ... apparently there is still a Beaujolais Restaurant in Manchester but it is now on Portland Street .. I must check it out
I have passed this salon many times ... pleased to see it survived into the 21st century
Lisa didn't survive, the property is now part of Habitat
Don't know where this boutique was located?
mmm there is still a mans shop on Old Bank Street....
This is not far from my office and is now a swish resturant called Luso
his interior designs have changed a bit !
what the man about town was wearing in 1980... nicely coiffured hair do!!
