(I was now at Liverpool Polytechnic.. now John Moores University.. studying Business and Finance with Marketing... yes I hated Business studies aged 18 but after 2 years out of education I got an appetite for it. It is quiet amusing as I am doing a Foundation Degree course through work just now (following on from my 'Professional Cerificate in Management ' with Open Unversity and I am actually using one of the books I used back in 1983... 'Understanding Organisations' by Charles Handy ...wow somethings don't change I guess!)
Wednesday 23 1990
Went to Reading to set up new concession
(by now I was travelling the length & breath of the UK... one day Glasgow next day London. It was the best of jobs.. full expense account, company car... full autonomy in where I went and when I did it .... unfortunately in 1991 the company was taken over and I was made redundant. boo hoo! I did have my day in court though and successfully sued them for unfair dismissal... )
Thursday 24 1979
General Studies A'level
Exam in the morning = really difficult (how can General Studies be difficult . I have no idea if I passed it or not!)
Wednesday 25 1977
European Cup Final
I predicted the score
French aural exam in a.m.
German oral exam in p.m (how cruel & tough is that ....2 language eaxms in one day I bet I didn't know my bratwursts from my les saucisses by the end of it !!?)
Went to a part at the Dixieland with 'J' (after this day what else would I do except party lol)
All is not well with Blogger. I can comment sometimes and not others ... I can post images then I can't. Ok Google what is the crack here? I am even using Google Chrome now and I must admit the service is better than Firefox at the moment. I am tempted to move my blog elsewhere but being a technophobe I am resisting the draw of a sparkly new blog.. but I may yet be tempted. However I am not fully convinced it isn't something to do with my ISP!!!
Poor Gitwizard is also having similar problems.
Well it has been a lovely Bank Holiday weekend oop Norff... the sun has shone and I had my first breakfast of 2009 in the garden :-)
If anyone is interested it is a seedy kinda bread toasted with Philadelphia Light.. a cup of Earl Grey hosted by Olga and a read of a very interesting book accompanied by a cat on the table and puppy on my lap and birds twittering around me :-)
Today I headed to Southport and dropped Teen in the town then gardened for my mother ... she has a most amazingly large garden but not so amazing when you are 78 I suppose and are reliant on your kids to keep it under control.. but the sun shined and I got loads done ( the 'glass back' is complaining a bit tonight but it felt good to be out and doing stuff)
I have a tough week ahead and only 4 days to do what I have to do.. it is like this! ... what I have proposed (I can't tell you what ) .. have asked for comments from many and am having to piece it all together for a coherent paper by Friday.. no pressure !! I guess this is why I am in the job I am and why they pay me .... personally I would rather be in my sandals walking in the sand ... hey ho maybe one day !!
