time-travelling tuesday (part 6)

Me in my Brownie uniform, 1988.  No shame...

22nd February 1988
Today I wore my brownie uniform to school for thinking day.  At gym I was so good at doing cartwheels that I had to walk and do it withot stopping.

[To the best of my knowledge, I have never managed to do a cartwheel in my life...ever!  Have I misremembered or was I just bigging myself up in my own private diary?)

23rd February 1988
Today after I had done my writing Mrs Smith said you can do joint writing in all your books now.  Mum said I was very good at doing joint writing.  I had to take Kerry to chanter.

42A 24th February 1988
Today is Wednesday.  I had to write about the nurses watch.  By the way did you know the numbers are on it upsidedown.  I made a marvellous medicine.

25th February 1988
Eventually it is today.  I was working with Miss Corregall.  Comapring Surfaces was the thing.  Mum is baby sitting Lynsay tonight.

26th February 1988
I am at Finlay's house for the night.  I saw Lynsay having a bath.  Mum and dad are at a policemans ball.

25th July 1988
[I guess I must have been filling in spaces when I ran out of pages?!]
Granny phoned to see if mum and dad could have a meal.  So we had to go to Finlay and Flora.

27th February 1988
Today is mums birthday and Martins too.  I got a little dog from Flora who looks like this.

Of course it is a toy.  [What?! The drawing looked so realistic!] I've read a lot of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Factory.

28th February 1988
Today is Sunday.  I was making a mat.  It was tapestry matiriel and I was sewing a patern on it.  Kerry made penut peenut peanut butter bon bons.  Kerry said they were bum bums.

    1. Yes, such sophisticated humour... That said, it did still make me laugh 26 years after the fact!
