Monday 7 March
Boring day. HW – usual. At the bus stop, was overcast and breezy. No rain untill the afternoon. When I got home, Genelle was here. Apparently she was complaining that she was sick at school and meantime mum was cleaning Leonie’s. She got a ring from Leonie saying to pick up Janelle. Mum got her and she said after Janelle left at 6 o’clock that Janelle didn’t look or act sick at all. Bit fishy, eh?! [No idea why I spelt Janelle as Genelle in the first instance] Uniform has changed. See 8th!
Tuesday 8 March
Now the uniform is a blue (dark) skirt and a Peter blue or Bird of Paradise Print blouses! Yay! Anyhow, today, we made Honey and Nut Crunch in Home Ec! Was treadly fun! Astro came here, and we had to keep him quiet so Mrs Pajaya did know he was here. Pets aren’t allowed at our flat you see! Oh! Here’s the Address – Flat 2, 25 Old Smithfield Road Freshwater Cairns, QLD 4870! Today was 8.3.83! Funny eh! Rain has continued tremendously!
Wednesday 9 March
Yesterday & today at the bus-stop it has been pouring. Still the rain continues. Went to Toni’s this arvy – Kylie came too. Laughed our hearts out! Anyhow, Julia is staying the night at Dad’s. I went with him & Julia just for tea at the Robbo’s, but decided not to stay the night cause of HW. Figgles came (That’s why I went!) Anyhow, Mum went shopping and bought new things – toater[? can’t decipher my handwriting] self -polish shoe polish, Snickers, Violet Crumble bars, ice cream, utensils & umbrellas
Thursday 10 March
On Tues – Picked up my paper-bag pants from brewers. Wore them to Robbo’s on Wed!
Today started with a bang! Mum woke me and told me the bridges were over so I couldn’t go to school (Thomatis & Freshy). Later on, after Julia left for school, a garden drain next door ended up flooding Old Smithfield Road! (Or Changing it into a BIG Puddle!) Julia got a new Barbie – Golden Dreams! We both got a dress to go on our barbies
Friday 11 March
Boring school day. Though Lucy asked me to sleep the night. We were to go out with Anthony for a pizza or something, then to the movies, but mum didn’t let me go. She said Anthony couldn’t be trusted. So, it ended up that Lucy slept. ‘Figgles’ came over with some Tucky-fried chook (BBQ) for tea. Went to town and bought 2 new, yellow comforatable canvas chairs. Petra couldn’t sleep. (Julia asked her also)
