27th April 1980

Sunday 27
Went to Sam's grandma's for dinner (must have been a bit tense after her husband had just died!)
Left there at 3.30
Went to the Snooty Fox with Sam & Mike
Spoke to MH from Paris 9 (ooo Paris 9 were a local band whose members went to school with Sam .. MH was the most gorgeous man I have ever seen wearing eyeliner... hey it was the 80s !)

Watched 'Clockwork Orange' til 1.30
********************************
Funnily enough this weekend I popped into my bro house as he was getting rid of DVD as he now has 'Blue Ray' what ever that is ?? so Teen and I came home with around 20 DVDs one of which was 'Clockwork Orange'.

I have had a pretty S**tty week last week and weekend .. my cat was sick, I had to put her to sleep, then I got the Mother of all tooth abscesses which caused my face to look like Joseph Merrick, then my other cat started peeing blood ... so off to the vets again today (thankfully it is cat cystitis which is caused through stress... so a couple of quick jabs and a course of antibiotics and all will be well), with all this I forgot to pay my cc bill so got hammered with interest and late payment ... so with vet bills of £200 plus my dental care I now pronounce myself seriously without any shopping funds !!

As it is still Monday I feel I need to to 'Mellow Yellow'
This image is from a card I picked up from a dumper basket for 10p


Loving Bananas in Pyjamas




Back at work tomorrow so all will be back to normal:-)

Things can only get better, think positive. Make soda bread - very therapeutic, recipe at mine, 1 hour from mixing bowl to eating hot bread, yum!

That's a very cool card :)

Oh - and your link wasn't working - but I fixed it.

I think I counted at least three 'horribles' in there so that should have used up your bad luck quota .... sunshine all the way now [apart from the rain of course - tee hee]

Good luck on restoring the 'shopping fund'

(and beware anyone offering to show you the banana in their pyjamas)

oh dear you have had an awful week. hope things pick up soon.

(you're not going to let your teen watch A Clockwork Orange are you?)

diane said...

Sorry you've been having a rough time. Hope things turn the corner soon.
I watched "A Clockwork Orange' for the first time recently. It's still horrid! A lot of films which were scary and shocking in their day, are mild when viewed nowadays but I found 'A Clockwork Orange' an exception. Nasty.

GW ~ Thanks I always think positive .. I hope. That soda bread recipe looks easy enough me not being a baker at all ... may give it a go this Bank Holiday weekend (yippeeee a long weekend :-) )

70steen said...

Hi DM .. I liked that card too particularly as it was only 10p what a bargain. Thanks for fixing the link over at yours :-)

70steen said...

DP ~ yep I figured that I have now had my 3 pieces of bad luck so fingers crossed.. & yes what have you done with all that good weather??? :-)

70steen said...

Somn ~ mmm I am not sure how to restore the lost funds ?? I could shop at Netto for a few weeks but that would be even more torture .. only a month to build up the funds before June arrives ... Teens 16th Birthday, purchasing a prom dress for Teen(be glad you have boys, car insurance due and a holiday eeek!!!!

70steen said...

p.s. Somn ...re bananas in Pyjamas ... it could be the best offer I have had in ages lol ;-)

70steen said...

Thanks Dear NM ... as the song goes 'Things can only get better'

No I will not be letting Teen watch Clockwork Orange but whether she will sneakily watch it whilst I am out is anyones guess (hey that is what I would have done!!) ;-)

70steen said...

Thank you too Diane :-)

mmm I wondering when to watch it? I think it will have to be an evening on my own with a large glass of something .... I will let you know my review of it though!!

70steen said...
