Bye-bye Bolly Knickers!

The last episode in the first series of Ashes to Ashes aired last night, and it was a good one. I'd thought perhaps Evan would turn out to be the bad guy, but it was someone I'd never even considered. I can't wait to see what happens next season -- I grew to like DCI Gene Hunt in Life on Mars, but I came to adore him in this new series. Now what will I do on a Thursday evening?

The pilot episode for The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency impressed me enormously, and again, I can't wait for next year to see more.

The trailers for the new Doctor Who have persuaded me that this next series may be worth watching again. I'm certainly going to give it a chance.

You know what's funny, though? I don't remember the 80s as having been particularly colourful in their fashions; and myself, I never wore anything but black, white and grey for most of those years...although now that I come to think of it, I did own a red, and an ochre dress...and one of my black dresses had a bluish green geometric pattern printed on it.

I remember going shopping with a friend, with more money than I had, who bought the red and the blue and the white from Inwear. Can't remember what I wore, except in general, and a few highlights. Probably the same as you, grey and white and black....

Inwear? It'd be 15 years before I could afford their stuff ;-)! In the 80s, most of my clothes came from Mac & Maggie, if they didn't come from second-hand shops or the back of my parents' wardrobe (they had some cool stuff from the 50s and 60s still lying around, that needed only minimal adjustment). And I had that fuchsia Laura Ashley dress I forgot to mention earlier, tight bodice, long wide pleated skirt and 3/4 length puff sleeves which did up at the back with a row of tiny buttons and that was my prize possession for a number of years...but that was a present from my Mum, bought to wear at her wedding in '85.

Exactly! Nobody had money for Inwear, except her. I didn't even like it, much too staid. Mac & Maggie, that was my favorite shop too. Clothes were much more expensive then ( relatively speaking), I never had anything to wear....Made my own stuff, mostly.
