Went into town (Northampton)
Disco in th p.m
Marlborough Daily Express International Aurora Championship at Silverstone =
freezing cold & quite boring
(ahh how racing has changed when cigarettes monopolised the sponsorship of motor racing now it it is 'high caffeine blow your socks off bouncing off the walls drink'(non -alcoholic of course) )
Just watched Ashes to Ashes ... superb . Based in 1982. An Audi Quattro. Bad Fashion. And so un PC but verging on getting PC. Plus everyone smoked every where........
By 1982 I had ceased to be a teen and was back to 'learning' after 18 months of being the lowest of the low in civil servant terms (I was a casual administrative assistant who just did stacks of filing all day .. it was indescribably boring.. despite me having my transistor radio with an ear piece so I could listen to Radio One all day (oh you could say I was listening to my 'tranny today' back then without fear of upsetting someone!!)... ipods eat your heart out lol)
I announced to my Mum I wanted to go to Uni/Poly and was met with ... 'neither of your brothers did that, sp what do you want to do that for?'
That was the biggest spur I needed and in 1982 I signed up for a Business and Finance course with Marketing. I actually wanted to do European Studies with a language but I think I was the only person that signed up for it and the course didn't run (How un-forward thinking were we then??)
On a sad note today I think that one of my cats is dying. Dear Wallis. She has gone from being very active to losing weight in a week and not eating today although she has been eating ok up to now. She is 13.
I found her on the bathroom floor earlier flat out and dribbling. I picked her up and she purred for me, I have brought her down stairs and have made her comfortable.
Wally is really Teen's cat and her sister Jess is mine. She has wanted a lot to do with me as she is a one person (so I was happy she purred earlier when I gently lifted her up and cuddled her) but adores Teen as she does her.
When I got the 2 cats it was when ex & I were parting and we still had an old cat Rocky at home.
Wally adored him as he did her and she would follow him everywhere, when he died she was distraught ... unlike Jess who loved human company& didn't notice Rocky's demise at all.
Dark days ahead I feel .... many tears from Teen & I.....
Taken this weekend (pets chilling in the sunshine)
I have made a really comfy bed for her in the kitchen tonight ...
