‘Hit That Perfect Beat’ – Bronski Beat

Tonight: East of the Enders once again!

I suffer from terrible pains these days. Usually, towards the end of the day, my whole body begins to ache – most especially my stomach and back! It’s awful! Oh no! I must have AIDS!

And the Bears can sing – dah-dah-dah-da!

What’s Britain's Number One? My favourite record lately: ‘Saving All My Love For You' by Whitney Houston. It’s also Number One in my chart. Groove!


[Following his World War II career, my Granddad Pritchard resumed work at Ackton Hall Colliery on the 12th December 1946, on a wage of 14 shillings a week – Ritcherd, 1990]

This time 3 years ago:
‘I got Doctor Who Monthly 72.’

This time last year:
‘I went to Joey’s for tea. He lives in Marshland St James. Then we went to the disco at school. It was brilliant – and I received various Christmas kisses. I slow danced with Angelene Hawkins and Owen Thomas. Mandy was there, and I love her. She didn’t mind me Christmas kissing other girls at all, i.e. Angelene (3 times), Katy Gaynor (twice), Rachel Baker (three times), Rebecca Campbell (once), Amanda from the 5th Year (three times) and Sue Smith (twice). I slept over at Joey’s.’
