To practise my typing I typed out a couple of recipes for my file and added some stamping to decorate the page. After 30 years and more of electric typewriters, word processors and finally PCs in the workplace I need a lot of practise to get back my manual typing skills - such as they were! The wonderful Typewriter Heaven thinks it dates from the late 70s.
Carrying on the retro theme, I nabbed this electric blue Sparklets soda syphon in a charity shop a few weeks ago for £3. When I got it home I was relieved to find the bulbs to charge it up are freely available on line. Such a satisfying shape don't you think and I love the vibrant colour. This design is a Hostmaster and I can just imagine it sitting on the sideboard at a 70s/80s dinner party. And surely there must have been one on Beverly and Laurence's drinks bar in Abigail's Party, though I can't see one in the photos.
