Growing up in the 70’s is now live on Amazon. You can find it here.
The school kids are mostly back to school now, so that’s nice for them, and fantastico for us at the shop. No more sticky fingers, and questions about ridiculous things like ‘do you two live together!!’ No, they’ve been mostly lovely so can’t moan. Isn’t September starting out great though, the month of smokey wood fires, berries and splendid sunsets. Not sure about sunrises, I’m not an early riser. That’s hubby’s department. He’s the one who gets up and makes tea and pops off to our local bakery for smashing bread for our toast and sandwiches. We went off to the market yesterday as the week before had been quiet. A lot of the Romany travellers come round buying things. A little girl said to her Mum.
“Mammy, I want some cards.” Her mum answered.
“Mammy I want cards.” This went on a while then Mammy said,
“Why do you want cards?”
“I WANT to play SNAP Mammy.”
“Here you are then.” She got her money out. Aren’t they cute, couldn’t you just eat them up. Great for us that Mammy changed her mind.
We had a lovely few days as our daughter from Leicester and Son from Torquay came to stay, so for once in a while our youngest Son who lives at home had his brother and Sister to go around with. They went to see their Grandma and took her some lovely flowers, cheered her up no end, then they went into Birmingham and came in sometime next morning.
Enjoy the sunshine, and back to school feeling. Hark at me, my story in the 70’s collection is called ‘High School Blues’ I hated school from the day I started. I was crossing the years off until I left. I taught our youngest Son from home myself for his last two years, he passed exams as well, but that’s a story for another day.
