1982 - Jo was 16. Over the summer, Jo got her first job - Bedmaking at the local holiday camp with her best friend. Not the ideal job for two asthmatic teenagers with a dust allergy! But it paid £2.40 for three hours work which was the same as a paper-round paid for every day and twice on a Friday. Jo also dated her first boyfriend, this lasted about as long as her job did! Summer only and then back to school for her exam year. Jo was making more friends out of school thanks to her family moving house and discovering a love of rock music which was to define the rest of her life.
Well first off I wasn't born quite yet that year (but hubby was ;)). When I turned 16 I had a surprise birthday party that my mom threw for me. Actually I had 3 parties! I got my driver's license and a new light purple Plymouth Neon. I think that's the only time I saw that color of car ever was the '95 Lilac Neon. I also had my first job (to pay for the car and the insurance) where I worked at a roller skating rink selling concessions. One of my worst jobs ever but one of my best quitting stories :) A little risque for here though!
Now Jo loves everything Halloween so these are two things I've stitched that I think she would like :)
