9th April 1980

'blank page' boo hoo

*********************

Yip yip yipeeeee I have finished for Easter. So looking forward to 10 days away from the office.
Have got a pretty full diary on my return though. I even had an invite to a meeting in December today ... DECEMBER!!!??? What has happened to my life it is becoming booked up before I can live it??? .... (mmm note to self start looking for a new job!)

Summer is approaching and I am looking to buy a gas barbeque...I said I never would but I am fed up with trying to get lighters to fire and having the temperature is all over the place .........

I saw this advertisement in my Advantgarde mag from 1980 the other day

click on the photo and check out the prices !!!

29 years later for just over £100 I could have this & for almost £700 you can buy this
My how dear were they in 1980 ??

It feels like a Friday night & I am surfing and chilling.

Indulging some brilliant 'Talking Heads' from the late 70s /early 80s ... superb

Great stuff by Talking Heads.
Never seen (or heard) Take Me To The River, David Byrne looks really young there, excellent backing singers too.

I was so into the vid, that I didn't notice all the colour's leached out of your blog, shall I send you some over, think I have a pallet in the back of the warehouse ?

I'm going to refrain from saying anything about gas *bites tongue*

10 days off! - typical - in my day I worked six and a half days a week, had half a morning's holiday a year and had to comb the seashore for lumps of coal to keep my wife and ten children warm in the winter ..... actually, I used to work 10 days a year and have the other 355 off. I used to look forward to leap years just to get that extra day - tee hee

GW ~ can't believe you have not heard 'Take me to the River' by Talking Heads before... it is great though isn't it??

Decided to have a bit of a make over ... the pink was getting on my nerves a bit ... the only thing with this template is that it makes my blog look a bit grown up !!!

So what colours have you in your pallet??
