Back in the “olden days” (early ’70s) there wasn’t a lot of choice of courses at secondary school. The 3 choices at the school I went to after year 10 were “Professional”, “Commercial” or “General”. You had to decide which course and the subjects were set accordingly.
Well I chose Commercial and made some very good friends in 5C1. We haven’t seen each other (mostly) for quite a long time even though we live fairly close by. I thought that because we are all having “special” birthdays this year (although I have missed a few birthdays at the end of 2012) I would send out birthday cards with a note suggesting we catch up for coffee or lunch.
Here are 2 of the cards. Not my usual style but I tried to make them retro with a “secretary” theme.
Seeing that I’m reminiscing take a look at this Pinterest site (♥ Pinterest)
I know that it is an American site but there are lots of things I remember – Vick’s inhaler, Tupperware salt & pepper shakers, teledex (still have one), stereos. The “readers” are different we used to have “John and Betty” John can jump, Betty can skip.
If you were a typist you will remember the frustration of the keys jamming 😆
Well that is all for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with some more holiday photos.
