Week Thirteen – Interest Waning…

Saturday 26 March

Daddy & Nana came back bringing our easter eggs from dad. Went to Lake P. again. Karen wasn’t home, so left without her. Kaye M.’s garage sale was good (this morn.) bought some clothes. Dad came for tea.

Sunday 27 March

Boring Day. Went to dump – thought I saw Martin P. with Shane:- was right! he’s back! Called to Rebecca’s but she wasn’t allowed to play.

Monday 28 March

Was right about Martin  – on the way home on the bus, he was spotted at Lorelle & Katrina’s bus-stop, going in to the service station

[Tuesday 29 & Wednesday 30 March not completed]

Thursday 31 March

Had our Easter party (only for 8B). Went off quite well! I bought home 4 pieces of cake (banana cake) for Julia, but mum thought it was uneaten lunch & she threw it out. Went to see ET & Little Miss Marker with Figgy at Drive-In. Had a Paradise Pack from ‘Big Rooster’ for tea. Was treadly delicious Four people; so we got 4 easter eggs. I had 3! Figgy had 1 Don’t forget: Back to School: DAY 6


Week Twelve, 1983

Saturday 19 March

Am staying at dad’s tonight cause he’s going to Brissy on Mon. Anyhow, saw American Werewolf in London (3 time!) with Pellings video. Then later in the arvy after lunch of pizza (yuk!) we made; all went to Freshy Creek!

A Life in Words

Sunday 20 March

Saw ‘Can’t stop the music’ on Pellings video (2nd time!) Later (again) in the arvy, went to Karens for a swim. Weren’t allowed so went to Lake Placid! is TREADLY!

Monday 21 March

Day 3 at school today! My favourite day! German! Typing! Home Ec! double English! Art! Maths! TREADLY SUBJECTS! Today was lengthened as parade was extra long & we missed out on half a period – was Typing too! In art started the body. I have a record so far – my face drawing was picked to go up & so was my space landscape one. Hope I have luck with my body.

Tuesday 22 March

Had a trim – fringe. Cut so short. Lucky no-one teased! Had Mr. Roff [our school principal] for Typing. – was TREADLY! At first he gave us a lecture on our uniform – a disgrace! Then when we were typing, we could do whatever we wanted because he didn’t understand. I went back tot he very first things we learnt – fff space jjj space fff space etc! !!!

Wednesday 23 March

Mum went shopping. Bought Mars Bars, heaps of biscuits and icy poles. After school, about 7:00 went to Leonie’s to swap dad’s car for ours while ours had service by Roger. Played tiggy around the courtyard. Stopped and I was sopping wet with sweat! Not to worry I hadn’t had a bath anyway. Didn’t have one when got home either. Will have it in the morning.

Thursday 24 March

Finished our geography unit & started history. Is so boring. I hate it. Going to speech for the last time. Have decided to give it up due to the amounts of H.W. Got Nana’s cartons from the railway (Figgy did). [Nana – mum’s mother – moved up to Cairns from Brisbane, and in with us…] Big heavy, things! But shouldn’t be mean. Mum had the car serviced. Didn’t do much. She also cleaned Leonie’s place, bringing in $40.

Friday 25 March

Last night, started reading the Bible. Is quite interesting. Today made my jam drops. We had a different teacher so she didn’t notice us eating the mixture. Yummy (when done) but makes you thirsty. Went out with Figgy to his boss’s place for a French Party. Made us wear a frog. Got my new things today. Shoes = mum & me, silvery metal colour low heel / Top = black & white stripe, sleeves adjustable. Good for win. or summer. And black tights for me.

Week One, 1983

Saturday 1 January

Today we got our new dog – Astro! He’s a Shepherd-Labradore cross.  Went to Robbo’s for chicken lunch. Astro is just 5 weeks old. Costs $30 including vaxination & 1st worming tablets.

Sunday 2 January

Aspro, er, Astro

Think Astro is blind or nearsighted or longsighted. Going to have BBQ seak but had a little storm. Lazy day. Ate too much. Aus won toss – batted first – (cricket)

Monday 3 January

Over the past few days, a part of my ear has been aching & sore when pressed in or out. Got to write to Fig [nickname of the man my mother ended up seeing after my parents split] to thank him for the records (unfortuneately) (IS VERY HOT) Dad found Costic (work cat) outside work today. Thought we lost him on 31st ’82. He & Astro or Aspro (now) got on well. [My mother wanted to call the pup Aspro because he was “a little pill”] Went to Kendals for swim & drink, when got back, Julia & I played with Pellings, tried to make cubby, couldn’t so went there, played “Game of Life”.

Tuesday 4 January

Met Pellings at 9:30 and began thinking of club names. Met them at 8.00 but they only just woke and had to have brekky & do chores. They said (as it was fine weather) we might all go to Lake Placid for the day. Matthew C. came back today and can’t find his black cat. One of his dogs (Princess) peed on Aspro while he was sniffing her thingo. [HER thingo? She was definitely a ‘he’!] When Pellings came, mum left to have hair body-waved. Today we actually finished the ladder! But I still won’t get up the tree. [clearly the club and the ladder refer to a treehouse we were attempting to build, in our yard]

Wednesday 5 January

Went shopping. Mum wants to buy us some cool, low heeled sandals for summer – I saw nice pair $16. Couldn’t get them today though. Mum’ll try and get them for me later. Wore the white top I got from Jodie & Michael for Xmas. I like it now! After lunch playing with Pellings, R. said, “Let’s have a day at our house”, yesterday, so we’re going there. Took astro to the vet – has a very bad case of Hookworm. Might not live – Poor thing I love him so much and you know who! 

Thursday 6 January

Yesterday ended up not playing with Pellings cause when we got to their place L. had gone out and R. was about to go. So spent the arvy watching TV. Anyhow, went to Brewers 9:30 and watched video before going to Crystal Cascades with Mima, Pol, Beka, Louisa and Julia. Am afraid that we had to disappoint the Pellings again but – it was deadly fun. Took Astro – Mim & everyone love him. Came home Mim & Polly sleeping the night. Stayed up till 12.45!

Friday 7 January

Auntie Hilary’s Birthday & Clare’s.

Played with Mim & Polly all day – good fun. Last night had a midnight feast. Redskins, tictacs, Raspberries, dandy fruit chewy. Very tired. Brewers left around 3.00 now boring! Mrs S. drove past yesterday when we were walking back from the shop with the feast goodies. I didn’t see Shane in the car. Am all upset about high school – books & uniform. “Figles” rang today but this time I didn’t hang up like I did before shopping, on Wednesday
