How ya’ll doing?
I had a plan to create a planner theme to reflect my childhood TV preferences.
I restricted myself to 80s children’s telly (because if I included all the TV shows I remember, I’d need a bigger planner!) then I had the tough decision to make about which actually made it in.
Much to my husband’s disgust, I didn’t include Superted or Bananaman! 😉
I included some brightly coloured washi because the 80s weren’t about subtlety.
There are lots of famous shows depicted but I included a few less-remembered ones such as Bertha, forget me not farm and The Wuzzles. (I remember crying when they axed forget me not farm and I used to have a wuzzles clock and Rainbow Brite doll….so many memories!)
When I’d finished I also realised that I’ve subconsciously revealed all my childhood crushes… the earliest being Andy Crane in the broom cupboard. (A couple of years ago they had a 30th birthday party for cbbc and had all the presenters back….he doesn’t look any different!)
(I was always more Thundercats than He-man…)
Then ITV introduced us to Pat Sharp (who still looks lovely now but has a much more sensible hair cut) and the lovely Neil Buchanan.
I adore Neil and he is so talented, but when looking up the picture on Google I found out where he is now; he’s in a middle-aged rock band!!! I love it! 🤣 It’s so at odds with the kids TV but makes me so happy. (Honestly, go and search it…you won’t be disappointed!)
(Orville! 😍… More importantly, the legend that was Roy Castle 💔)
So what did you watch? Who were your first celeb crushes? Did you enjoy my confession? 😉
