Happy 10th Birthday - Sept 30 1977

Looking at the big header on this spread of my diary I thought maybe I'd gone big on celebrating my sister's birthday, but no that's in August. And my own 10th birthday was before I started doing a diary, so what could I commemorating with such emphasis? Radio 1. Honestly, the tenth anniversary of the start of Radio 1 was so big a deal I gave it a big headline? That's how interesting my teenage life was.

Loving the TV line-up, and the pop records I've made my "RFTD" (Record For The Day). Yes, I think we have my childhood totally summed up there. Flowers In The Rain by The Move, fair enough, but who remembers Stranger In The Dark by Stella Parton?


  1. This is so beautiful. I recently found my old diary too, which inspired me to pick up writing again. But mine isn't nearly as impressive as yours. I hope you will publish more pages in the future.

  2. hi..

    this is really so good ! Thank goodness we have another amira basmati lover here. :) We usually steam it 3-5 minutes on the stovetop – so easy
