My salad dressing days

Do not underestimate the therapeutic quality

of dancing in your living room to music which reminds you of your youth.

There I was in my skin-tight striped jeans, batwing jumper, legwarmers and pixie boots with my layered fringe swept off to one side dreaming of spandex leotards and dancing around fountains with some of my classmates at the New York School for the Performing Arts.

And, of course, I am now bringing the music to a whole new generation: after strutting her stuff to ‘Hi Fidelity’ and ‘Des-da-des-da-des-da-MONA’, Chicklet #1 remarked to me sagely: ‘Good music!’.

The gal is indisputably classy.

Her mother’s daughter, natch.

I’m hoping for a similar Footloose rave soon – as soon as I work out what to do with the large black disc the music is stuck on.

Brilliant UC! Next time Gorgeous Babe stays with us I shall introduce her to a whole old world of music. If I can find the wind up thing we used to play it on!

Advertising standards been after you have they?

up until this post, I’d blocked out of my mind the horrors of 80’s fashion…

I do hope you can find little tiny leg-warmers for Miss Chicklet.

Comment by Whinger

the fashion was great at the time – I always felt unattractive in my teens but felt good in leg-warmers, long t-shirts and dancing was cool, which was great as I was in a musical theatre group at the time.
what great memories you have jogged for me – I loved Leroy! I saw the Kids From Fame at the NEC in Birmingham.
