Here are a few things that we thought might take you back to your childhood…
All the girls had an uncomfortable school pinafore
It took five minutes for the TV to warm up
Nearly everyone’s mum was home when the kids got home from school
Nobody owned a purebred dog
You’d reach into a muddy gutter for a penny
Your mother wore stockings that came in two pieces
All male teachers wore ties and female teachers had their hair done every day and wore high heels
You got your windscreen cleaned, oil checked and petrol served, without asking, all for free, every time…
It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents.
They threatened to keep children back a year if they failed the school year… and they did!
When a Ford Zephyr was everyone’s dream car… and people went steady.
No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked.
Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.
Playing cricket with no adults to help the children with the rules of the game.
And with all our progress, don’t you wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savour the slower pace, and share it with the children of today?
