I went to school. I went to school to learn. I went to school to learn about Jesus and his teachings. I went to school to learn about Jesus and his teachings and about how to draw and paint. I went to school to learn about Jesus and his teachings and about how to draw and paint and how to read and write about a book called The Tin Men by Michael Frayn. I went to school to learn about Jesus and his teachings and about how to draw and paint and how to read and write about a book called The Tin Men by Michael Frayn and how to add up sums and letters. Then I came home.

Tonight, I went to the Skating Disco - good fun - and eventually came home after dropping Jazz ‘Rambo’ Thompson home.

OLD DIARY ENTRIES…

This time 10 years ago:
‘I watched Doctor Who: Planet Of Evil (Part Three).


This time 6 years ago:‘Went to the Kiosk in Chequerfield and saw a new comic called Doctor Who Weekly...

Mum and George weren’t at home so I went to Grandma Pritchard’s and asked her if she would lend me the 12p I needed to buy it...

It was a lot of money – comics are usually 10p or less – but she lent me it (begrudgingly) and it’s great…

…in fact, it’s amazing.’

This time 5 years ago:‘I watched Doctor Who: Meglos (Part Three).


This time last year:‘A new series has started on BBC1Morgan’s Boy, starring Gareth Thomas who played Blake in Blake’s 7. It’s brill!’
