30 YEARS AGO TODAY
Every so often the Hippy will come home from work with a bit of treasure usually from under the floor boards of a building he is renovating/ tearing apart/ rebuilding.
Sometimes they are funny, like the rude note a builder left back in 1972, too rude to post here but very funny. Or the clay pipes we found under the floorboards at our old house. Or the woodbines packet he can home with last week. Or the set of old school lockers he gave me for Mother's Day. Or even the tea urn he found in a skip.
But Friday's find was rather poignant.
30 years ago today.
"In the end nobody will win. Everybody will loose - and loose disastrously."
I was surprised at how strong my feelings about MacGreggor still are.
But sadly it was true.
Did you wear a coal not dole sticker?
I did, to school which was an interest growing up in the Tory heartlands of Guildford in the 1980's.
Not sure it made me many friends, but it sure made my mind up!
Or are you as many people I know these days just too young to know what the hell I'm wittering on about?
All a bit too somber for a Sunday evening?
Here is a picture of the old fag packet to cheer you up.
It's on display in the kitchen, which is more than I can say for the old copy of the Daily Mirror!
Have a lovely week kids.
Love Nora xxx
