Hello! I can’t quite believe May is upon us!
If you caught my last blog you may recall me mentioning the VHS tape I came across when sifting through the cupboard under the stairs… Well, I’ve been sifting through a little more. There are several boxes waiting to be unpacked and a zipped bag of which I have no idea of the contents! Some of these boxes haven’t been opened for at least ten years!
In one box, I came across this radio which my Mum bought me many years ago at a car boot sale. I’m going to clean it up a little and pop it on the shelf. I love the colour.
In another box… vinyl! I love vinyl – the sound of it is so distinctive and it always reminds me of my early days in radio – lining up the next track on the turntable.
Speaking of a turntable I no longer have one but I’ve just found this brilliant ION turntable on our website, which I now have my eye on. It’s really, really clever, you can stream music to other devices via Bluetooth and it lets you convert all your LPs to MP3s so you can listen to them on the go. Technology never ceases to amaze me and I wonder where it will take us in ten years’ time?
Finally, I came across a small photo album too. It’s me! Funnily enough tucking into an ice cream! Can you still buy the cones which you pop the rectangular block of ice cream into? and can you still buy the rectangular blocks of individually wrapped vanilla ice cream? I haven’t seen them for years.
There are more boxes to look into and that bag is waiting to be unzipped. I have a feeling it’s boring old paperwork from around 20 years ago!
I’ve a few days off at home now and I am planning a visit to the gym (it may not happen!) as well as going to enjoy some glorious walks with my Cairns.
Take care and see you soon…
Now what’s in that blue box in the corner..?
