Thursday 1 1975
Had an argument in art about the Bay City Rollers
Nearly got beaten up (really? I don't think so!!)
Now you see I was Mud fan and didn't rate BCR (although I went to see them in concert dressed in my cropped jeans with tartan on) Mud were great... who could forget dancing to 'Tiger Feet'
Can't resist this..... it has to get your toes tapping :-)
Sunday 1 1977
With Moggie all night (well not all night obviously !)
Lent Banksy 10p (bet I didn't get it back)
Bev says Dave fancies me
but I know she is only messing
Worked 1.30 - 4.30
Ange fancies Martin
This so reminds me of my Teen who is a similar age now.... who fancies who? Who is going out with who? etc.... ahh times don't change that much when hormones are involved lol ;-)
Saturday 1 1982
Went to see 'The Gamekeeper' by Barry Hines
Singing in the bar at night - good (not sure if that was me or a singer ??)
Interestingly the entry the day before said I went to a talk by 'McVicar', John McVicar.
In the 60s he was 'public enemy number 1' an armed robber who incidentally had a dead or alive reward on his head. (Do we still have dead or alive tags?? Probably not!)
He did get 'nicked' eventually and was sentenced to 26 years ... in 1978 he was released (he must have been a good boy mostly even though he did escape a bit).
Whilst in prison he got himself a degree in an " 'ology "and wrote 'McVicar' which was made into a film starring Roger Daltrey (which I don't think I have seen).
I don't recall the content of his talk this far on in years but I do remember he was a very awesome, in your face, charismatic speaker.
Sunday 1 1983
Motor racing at Donnington Park
It poured with rain all day (mmm sounds about right!!)
Yahoo it is a long weekend :0) .. I do like May( in one breath) as we have two extra days off ... but in another breath unfortunately I am maxed out at work just now and those 2 days will cause me huge catch up ... gawd I wish people would stop giving me deadlines .... (plus can someone remind me I am in London on Tuesday and need to be out of bed for 5 am!!)
On the cards this Bank Holiday weekend is painting the dining room and getting my teen fitted for her Prom dress (sorry everyone in the USA but I am pulling my tongue out at you and blowing a big raspberry... we never had such a thing here in the UK before just and end of school disco...) The handmade dress Teen has her eye on is £190 gawd I don't think my wedding dress was much more than that?????
