There were corsets!
There were girly treats and a weekend away (is there no end to Mr M's generosity?)!
With pictures from my childhood
and facts from the year I was born
Details of big events
And a range of 'advice' matched up to a range of idols ...

We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows:
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance:
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
