books!

My idea of heaven as we only had a visiting library one evening a week was a library that opened every day.

A neighbour's child had a whole bookcase filled with wonderful books. And once when she had a birthday party and I was anticipating a good read, I arrived to find the settee firmly blocking the bookcase and was told " so that you will join i the games and not read all the time." Need an emoticon for tears..

I have not changed; still rarely or never enough books! My heaven was the charity shops and a bagful from there!

Seeds sown in childhood..

Sky Sports. All I ever wanted to do was watch copious amounts of sport on Television. Now I do and I don't have to pay them a penny for it.

Military grade Walkie Talkies



Mobile Phones weren't a thing then so the idea of communicating with your friend, who lived a couple of housing estates away, was thrilling.

I always wanted a worm farm but didnt want to be greedy so asked Santa for an empty jampot. Imagine my disgust when he brought me a doll and pram
