My Old Diaries


Recommended Posts

Back in the late 90s I used to keep a diary.  Even my sister said they were boring but I used to write what had happened in Home and Away most days.  I thought I'd thrown them out but I found them yesterday.  Admittedly Steven and Selina are mentioned quite a bit but I thought I'd share them in case the Home and Away information in case it provides any extra tidbits / jogs anyone's memory.  Also please note 2nd and 3rd January were repeats from 1996.

These tidbits are from January 1997.  There will be more to come.

02.01 Jack tells Liam at the bus stop to not go home because his father has been  arrested.  Michael gets swept off with the current.  Angel goes into labour and Kelly and Pippa help her to have baby Shane.  Selina is pleasantly surprised to see Steven.

One thing to mention for this one is that Steven seems to be the only regular character absent from this episode.


I can imagine that I'd have written summaries like these when I was 12-14.

Thanks for sharing. I wasn't watching H&A so often by then so this is both filling in the blanks and bringing back memories. It looks like these episodes are never going to see the light of day again ? 

I too could see myself keeping a diary like that if I'd been a bit younger when Home and Away first came along. I know I definitely used to write down every film I'd seen and what was number 1 in the charts when I was in my early to mid teens.
