Where am I?


Besides stuck in the 50's? I wish I could have seen this place years and years ago...was it nicer then? What did we have before bogans? I want this town to be nice again, oh yes.

I've only been there once, but is it Parramatta?

Nope, not Parramatta.

Frankston?

And in the 50s it was probably filled with bodgies and widgies, rather than bogans!

It looks nice, the clothes were nice but other than visiting I wouldn't want to be a girl in the 50s. I'm not clever enough to be a blue stocking so by now I would have a grumpy husband (unlike my grumpy partner) and a couple of children. When I finish my time machine I'll take you and we'll go to the craft shops!

ohh that seemed a bit moody, sorry just had the most annoying contact with a 'friend' who is very into vintage and keeps telling me how good the 40s were! erm war! There is a great book which shows how little people have really changed. Its a thing where after the war the british government asked people to keep diaries and send them in. It comes across a bit like a collection of blogs. Its good reading all the whinging, mostly about the food and the weather.

Hoppo Bumpo, you got it!

Becca, yep, I'd like to take a time machine and go for a visit, and shop, and take pics...but I don't think I'd want to stay there. It's the old rose coloured glasses thing. What's the book called by the way?
