4th April 1988
We went to visit Martin Scott. [The one with the broken leg - see last post.] It was boiling. I could have sizzled like a sausage.
5th April 1988
Quite hot but not as hot as yesterday. I saw a bee three times today. Tonight I am going to read Son of a gun.
6th April 1988
We saw Junior Mr Fly. In other words Mr Fly Junior. This morning Kerry and I were swimming. We had a barbecue.

Donna, I've got something to tell you. I'm going to buy a Gordon the Gopher. I've got enough money to buy one. I went to granny's house to earn some money. We stuck an L plate on her back. She went to huntly with it on and everyone was laughing at her. We earned £5 each. We sang her our cool song. [This day could have a whole post of its own, my funniest childhood memory, probably.]
Today it was windy then rainy then windy then rainy then snowy. I got 70p for helping with the sticks. Kerry and I did a play for mum and dad

It was Pinknosewinkypoos birthday. [He was my cuddly toy cow with a name chosen with help from my granny, she of the L plate debacle.] I don't know what else to write apart from I am wearing plain white ankle socks. Kerry only has to get 95p until she can buy a Gordon the Gopher.

Last night dad
videod taped Police Academy and I watched it this morning. We were looking after Linsay and she never cried once. I got an easter egg, a T shirt and 2 pairs of socks.
