London – February 1st, 1988

You’d have thought that a day of travelling would have been filled with all sorts of dramas, but the flight from Gran Canaria to London Gatwick was dull. I don’t enjoy travelling, so maybe that was the reason why it’s been one of those days when nothing seems to have happened.

Thinking back on today, though, maybe it’s been a dull day because of what happened towards the end of my holiday? It’s been on my mind a lot. Being used as a pawn in somebody else’s love games isn’t nice, but I need to let it go, put it behind me and get on with life. No use dwelling on what has happened and what I have no control over.

I was expecting a full house when I got home, but I found the house in darkness and nobody in. I was hoping Stephen would be back so I could at least have found out how Kev got on. Strange for a Monday evening, especially with it being a work night. With having to go back to work tomorrow, I’ve decided on an early night. The holiday washing can wait, along with the news of what’s been going on while I’ve been away.

Welcome to this new feature for 2018, on Hugh’s Views and News. In this feature, I’ll be sharing snippets from my diary of 1988. We’ll also take a trip in Hugh’s Music Time machine to hear some songs from the 1980s which have been chosen by some specially invited guests.

This week my guest is the author, writer, and blogger Aimer Boyz. Like all my guests, Aimer was asked to choose a random date and chose the 1st February. So, the above entry from my diary comes courtesy of Aimer.

Aimer recently wrote me a guest post which got lots of people talking. Entitled ‘The Ups And Downs Of Writing And Blogging’ it explores the world of being a published author who was recommended to also start a blog. Do the two go together? Click here to read the post.

Living in Toronto, Canada, Aimer has published two books in the LGBT genre and was nominated for the Goodreads M/M Romance Members Choice Awards in 2016. Her latest book, A Little Blood,  is the first in her Blood Bond Trilogy.

Aimer’s song choice from the 1980s is ‘Don’t Stand So Close To Me’ by The Police.

Released in September 1980, the song tells the story of a schoolgirl’s crush on her teacher which, in turn, is discovered. It became a top 10 hit in 10 countries, peaking at number one in both the UK and Ireland.

The title of the song was probably something my body language was telling everyone on February 1st, 1988, given that I entitled my diary entry as ‘Day Of The Dull.’ Do you have a favourite song that always manages to brighten up a dull day? Share a link to it in the comments. Thank you for the excellent song choice, Aimer.
