Thanks for popping in.
Friday’s blog a private peek, right?
Well I want to take you back to my teenage years.
I was having a really good chat with lovely Lisa at work today,
and this just came up, because we were talking about wallpaper of all things!
Remember when we were teenagers, we used to get a magazine every month which had a life size pullout pin-up of some super star or other. I even remember the name of the mag:
Donny Osmond (cringe),
to name just 5. I plastered the bedroom walls with them – much to my dad’s displeasure. From the ceiling to the floor.
Favourites at a kissable height…
Go on! Admit it! Tell me I wasn’t the only one who used to snog Marc Bolan’s poster!
The thing was, they were all quite short, weren’t they?
Even Bowie was only 5’ 8” – same as me.
And I had quite a few life size posters, like full length, so to speak.
So I used to hang them about a foot above the skirting board,
so they weren’t quite so short!
Anyway, Lisa found this highly amusing today.
Cor blimey, that takes me back…
Remember Top of the Pops on a Thursday evening,
after Tomorrow’s World?
Used to stand in the corner of the living room and dance away all by myself, while Dad hid behind the newspaper.
Hahaha … those were the days..
my friend, I thought they’d never end,
we’d sing and dance for ever and a day.
We’d live the life we choose,
we’d fight and never lose.
those were the days, oh yes those were the days…..
Do you know, I just wrote that out without flinching.
Some things you never forget.
Come on! Singalong!
You will feel brilliant afterwards, especially knowing hundreds of us all remember every single word, and we’re all having a go!
Where did the time go, eh?
Love & hugs,
