Grandma Winterfood and I went to Grandma and Granddad Sugden’s. Then we went up town (Castleford). We went to Seymour’s Opticians where I saw Annie, and gave Gerry (Flash’s mum) a Thank You card for letting me stay over. I then bought the ABC ‘Be Near Me’ double-pack and ABC’s ‘That Was Then But This Is Now’ 7-inch, and Men Without Hats’ ‘Living In China’ 7-inch.
Had a pepperoni pizza at Grandma’s and saw Louise and Kev who came over to see me.
LIPS! LIPS! LIPS!
OLD DIARY ENTRIES…
This time 2 years ago:
‘I went to stay at Grandma and Granddad Winterfood’s in Castleford and got some more Easter eggs. I also watched 10, starring Bo Derek, on the TV.’
This time last year:
‘I am now very interested and getting involved in Drama/Theatre, and tonight I had my first rehearsal for the Wetlands High School production of Bertolt Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle. I am playing the Governor and the Monk. We are being directed by my Drama teacher Wilma Hazlitt.’
