“Went up Trevs and got bike wheel” / ” In afternoon took out drawers of bedside cabinet and primed them – gonna paint them red and gold (smart) – Gonna paint chair gold as well” / “In evng (no tibs) recorded In + Out of Focus + Old Songs new Songs – Family”
My word, what a veritable cornucopia of things today eh?
No real idea about the what and the why regarding the bike wheel comment but it appears self-evident on the face of it.
I DO remember (“huzzah” says the crowd) painting my bedside cabinet. It was a six-drawer affair that my Dad had made with his own fair hands a few years earlier, and I was obviously channelling Lawrence-Llewellyn Bowen a few years in advance to spruce it up a little. It was obviously a well made piece of furniture because my Dad STILL uses it underneath his workbench in his garden shed. Same funky little legs on it and everything.
However, … a gold chair? Blimey, what kick was I on?
I borrowed “In & Out of Focus” back in October 1972, and (even more strangely) I said I sent away money to BUY “Old Songs, New Songs” the previous June… so…. erm….. I’m not entirely sure why I was recording either of them again?!
Perhaps I was just copying both to cassette for greater portability?
