Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Does anyone remember wearing Children s Harness and Reigns as a child? They are a rare sight over here but whenever I see them being used I always think "What a good idea".

Re: OBITUARIES

My understanding is that Koko was a female , she was very maternal to small animals that were given to her for eg kittens, she cared for them as if they were her babies. Oh... and she really liked Robin Williams, in the photo, maybe because he was hairy and a male. :smile: She very probably lived a ...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I feel for you Stanley and can relate. Both our parents disappeared within a week of each other (never to return to bring the family back together tho). My first job was working for a debt collection agency, I was able to see every record on their books in the form of cards. I came across a card for...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Everything belongs to it's own time Stanley and that's one of the influences that makes it special. I'm sure each generation has it's own great memories.

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I remember playing Elastics which involved a lot of jumping and singing. (Gosh the energy we had) Also hoola-hoops and Coca-Cola Yoyo's. Skates with metal soles that you adjusted to your foot-size. Playing Jacks on your knuckles. Hopscotch.

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I still have a crisp sandwich every so often (has to be chicken crisps). It's a throwback from high school lunches. Back then we always had a cream bun afterwards as well.

French Knitting - is that the same as Thumb Knitting? I remember 4 nails I think on a piece of wood. The wool would go round and round the nails and come out circular.

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I couldn't imagine putting my fruit and veg straight into the supermarket trolley (or even one of the smaller hand-held baskets that they provide.) That's because my buggy on wheels goes into the trolley while I wander around the shop. The wheels have been dragged over car parks, footpath s etc. I e...

Sorry about your Meccano set Stanley... Growing up I often had dreams about getting back to England. I would be on Colne Rd and each dream I would get a little closer to Grandma's place (Back Colne Rd). On the night, Australian time, of the 12 Oct '72 I dreamt that I got all the way to Grandma's sit...

How many of you still have your school reports. I still have my grade 7 report and my high school years report s.
I haven't looked at them for decades and was surprised to read that some teachers thought I was bright, cheery and well-mannered. Haha.
