Right, whilst I still remember:
Becks- you still need baking powder coz the 'rise' in SR flour deteriorates the longer the bag has been open.
Geoff- I caught the '4 candles' too- much sniggering to daughter's annoyance.
OH just said that he didnt realise that the presenter was that old. I said but they're all dead. OH referring to Chris Packham.
I can remember walking on the tops of frozen hedges. Somewhere there's photos/slides of Dad, who was a shade off 6', standing in a path through a snow drift well above his head.
Anybody remember liberty bodices? 'B' fiddly rubber buttons. Can remember Mum getting me up the road, steep hill, in a blizzard one winter & was wearing one- no idea how I know that but I just do. I dont think 62/3, as was old enough by then to go to school on my own. Our school didnt close- typical- OH said his in Shropshire/Welsh border did for 2 weeks.
Right, enough rambling from me. Daughters' order for seeds need moderating. J.
