  1. Great idea for a blog theme! There’s so many ideas of things to talk about and everyone loves a bit of retro! #weekendblogshare

  2. Fun theme. I love retro! He-Man, biking, playing until the street-lights turned on, and classic Mario, are all fond memories. I’m looking forward to seeing more 🙂

    1. Hi Pen, Thanks for reading and glad you enjoy the posts. When you get a mo please let me know the location of your site (I’ve looked through #AnythingGoes but couldn’t find you) Cheers x

  4. What an awesome theme! I confess to being born in the 80s, but my parent’s photos indicate that I missed a hell of a decade! #AnythingGoes

  5. Just got into work after Christmas and missed the book launch! Hope all goes well, David.
