I am trying to keep up with the Randjes per week SAL and although I forgot to check the new bands late on Friday evening I did download and print them on Saturday afternoon and was then able to get them stitched up. For those of you who have expressed interest in this year long SAL go *here*
where you can find all the charts. Another name makes an appearance on my sidebar, my darling grand-daughter Kirby Harris.
A few days back I read in the local newspaper that part of the school I attended way back when (Folkestone Technical High School for Girls) is being renovated in 23 luxury apartments and that they were holding an open day yesterday. So off we went to check it out. It was rather surreal to go through the main doors after all these years and wander through the building. The dining room, which had the most wonderful galleried landing, is no longer there but the original staircases have been retained as has the Chapel. The show apartment to the bottom left of the picture was where Mademoiselle Fenn tried in vain to teach me French and the apartment next to it was my old form room. The house was then called 'Eversley' and has been renamed 'Eversley Park'. This was my favourite building of the three that comprised my school.
This next picture shows how the school used to look. I think I prefer the old version!
And these are pictures of me (and my best friend Steph) taken outside of the building. These were our Summer uniforms which were green and white gingham dresses with brown cardigans. Our blazers were also green with a brown trim and we had straw boaters. Some of the girls in the background are wearing the Winter uniforms - brown skirts, cream shirts, brown and green striped tie, a brown mackintosh and brown felt hats. How old fashioned they look today!
I hope you have enjoyed a trip back into my past!
Thanks for visiting
