25th July 1986

Friday.
Olly is back!!! He actually slept in the garage with dogs!!! 2.00pm: Matt came round and we drove off for “Salcombe!!” The actual time we took was about 2½ hours!!! We had a walk around “Salcombe” and bought a lovely ice-cream!!!! 8.45pm: Dad arrived here!!!!!! He didn’t come with us because he was at work at the time!!! We did a spot of gambling and I won all Matt’s sweets!!! Watched a film at 10.30pm and it didn’t finish ’til 12.15am!!!!

So we weren’t that concerned that Olly had buggered off last night and quite rightly so. A night in the garage with the dogs was about as rough as it was going to get. And at least he had his nice soft pillow to make the night a little more comfortable.

Off to “Salcombe” (why do I insist on using the inverted commas every time I write “Salcombe”? – you see I’ve done it again!) In case you were wondering it was my Mum who drove us down and not me or Matt. I have recollections of listening to Mum’s cassette albums of Lionel Richie’s “Can’t Slow Down” & Dire Straits “Brothers In Arms” in the car. I seem to have survived unscathed.

I don’t know what form of gambling occured but it appears that I’m not to be messed with. Nor do I remember the name of the film we watched. It would have helped had I wrote it down.

Blimey, it’s only blumin’ Lionel flipin’ Richie…
