I was a child in the 1950s, a teenager in the 1960s. This blog is for those who lived through those times and want to reminisce, those who are interested in the period and even any who are obliged to research those decades for a project and want to hear what it was really like from one who lived through them.
My aim is not to hanker back to the ‘olden days’ and preach about how life was better. I don’t want to make people sad. I want to put a smile on a few faces as we remember things like Andy Pandy, Chad Valley toys, wearing hand-knitted jumpers, having a bath just once a week, traveling in cars with no seat belts, getting a Hotspur, Princess or Twinkle comic once a week and not having a clue what garlic, red peppers or Camembert looked like.
Travel back with me and smile, laugh or share your memories.
