Jan 2nd – ‘Lunch at Ball’s Bros with Tony, Eddie, Sue, Jenny, Carol and Moira. Was very nice. Can’t believe I spent £3 on a lasagne as i’ve almost run out of money and don’t get paid ’til the 15th. It was a nice day back in work though, had lots to do. After work me David and Sonia went over to Karen and Martin’s for dinner. She made lasagne’. When I got home Mum had saved me a huge plate of bolognese’.
Life aged just seventeen definitely needed to become more colourful . . . Where were my thoughts, feelings? Just mundane facts. I also wrote on the same day ‘Me and David have made up a really good dance routine to ‘Super Trouper’, which we showed everyone at the working men’s club the other night’. Ahh, youth. ‘Super Trouper’ had just been knocked of the top spot on the UK charts by John Lennon MUCH to my dismay.
