If Twitter had been around in the 1980s... Part Three

To see what we're up to now, just click the username above the picture 😃

#Thatcher'sBritain?  No, taking time off from the cut-throat world of high finance to give some exposure to my maternal instincts...!

Fancy myself in the new Levis ad. Another Nick (Kamen) beat me to it.

My favourite pixie boots!  And love my new scarf; could this become my signature look? Now to find a nice Cafe and have a Good Read!

  1. Good job you put Morten Harket last, no-one would have looked further. How lucky was Julia?

    1. Ha ha - actually, Julia warmed far more to the other two members of the band... I will say no more on a public page!

    2. It was a blast - lots of photos and good memories. Morten had his moments! Paul was my favourite, he and his wife were lovely.

    1. Oh, come now; it's seeing what we looked like that's the best part!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Strange to even start to think that we can be such different people. Love the post,even though it's slightly disturbing!

    1. I know; do you remember looking at 'old' people back then, and it never occurring to you that one day you'd be as them???

      Delete
    2. Oh yes - or at least realising rationally that you would be as old as them (though you couldn't imagine it) but thinking that nobody would notice. Well, nobody says diddley-squat when I produce my Senior Railcard!

    1. People used to get us mixed up. I could never see it, still can't!

      Delete
    2. I can't see it much - but there are photos of us in albums of the late 80s/90s, when our hair colour met somewhere in the middle, where I've actually said to Terry, 'Is that you or me?'!

  6. What a sweet picture of Rose and her baby.

    1. Thank you; yes, it's quite fun... I was going to make it more far reaching like I did with the Zodiac thing, but I've got novels to write and these things do take over a bit, so just one more to go!

  11. Hi Terry, I enjoyed that...Might do a similar one - only going back much further...(when I learn how to put photos on Facebook!) How different the 1940's/50's were: war, rationing, 'utility' was the word of the times, couples 'courted,' (live together? Bite your tongue...)etc., Could be fun! Being the age your grandmothers were is somewhat of a surprise and can't possibly be true?!(mentally 45). Best wishes. Joy x
