If Twitter had been around in the 1980s.... #wwwblogs


... what would some of my Twitter friends have been tweeting about (and looked like???)?  To see what we're up to 30 years later, just click the user name above each photo...  😲😅

More to come after this one ~ here are the first six....

No, it's not mine!  But you never know, it might be useful research for the novel I'll write one day ... #YeahRight 😂 😎

Premier YUPPIE restaurant or not, I'm not paying £1.50 for a 'Spritzer' if the menus have spelling errors... 'hor d'ouvres', anyone?

  6. This is brilliant TT! I must say you and Julia hardly look any different now, nor do the others for that matter! Such a great idea and. Love the pics and tweets. Very clever :)

    1. Oh, I think we all look different.... we just see our friends favourably! I think the thing with Julia and me is that we've kept the same style - I was only thinking yesterday that it might be time to have my hair cut....

      Delete
    2. Noooooooo!! Not your beautiful hair!! Not yet!

      Delete
    3. Not yet, but I wonder if at some point in the next five years my face will become too old for it!

      Delete
    4. Well, that might happen but not for a long time yet, I'm sure!

  7. Love this blog. Have always been a fan of 'big hair'! As if I had a choice. Lol. You're all looking great, ladies.

    1. Ha ha, you and me both, Lizzie! You're in next week's too - and you ought to see my hair in that one!

    1. Thanks - I hope you like your tweet next week!

  9. Top stuff T!! My hair suited the 80's perfectly being naturally big, have to keep it short nowadays or I'd be straightening it all the time. How lovely to see early pictures of everyone - you all look fabulous!!

    1. Yes, Julia and me had perfect 80s hair too!! But short hair - no, just not me. Hair straightening time (it takes an hour from frizzy curls to smooth!) takes an hour every 5 days, but I read while I'm doing it. Multi-tasking!!

  10. What a great post. The pictures are fab and what a bunch of glamour-pusses you all are :D

    2. I'll have a look next time I visit my mum as she's the keeper of the photo albums :D

    3. That would be great, thanks - I've just put part 3 together and am hoping to have enough for a part 4, too :)
