Down at the bottom of the garden,
Among the birds and the bees,
A little lot of little people,
They call the Poddington Peas!
Theres Creep-Pea, BlackEyed-Pea and Dump-Pea
Keep it a secret now please.
Theres Zip-Pea, Hap-Pea and theres Sweet-Pea
And all the Poddington Peas!
The Poddington Peas!

Class programme! Penny crayon aswell - is that still on? haven't seen it in ages


Hows about Bagpuss, Fingermouse and Terrahawks? Anyone remember them?
And when Snickers were called Marathons!

I remember spangles.
And tooty minities (can still get tooty frooties, but not minties :cry: )
And those stripey bags of green and white flat round mints.

Hmm, praps that was more down to breed, posh ones like poodles, and "toy" breeds like yorkshire terriers and such, probably on a very expensive diet! :lol:

For the more 'mature' members, what about:

Bar Six

The Wooden tops

Bleep and Booster


When a cadburys flake cost 12d :oops:

Noggin the Nog

Pogles Wood

Clipping a piece of cardboard with a peg to your bike wheel, so that it sounded like an engine.

Putting the pink/red/orange quality street wrapper over your eyes to watch tv, so that it looked like you were watching colour tv.

Getting told that if you were bad, your parents would get the police to take you away, then in the next breath, them telling you that if you were lost, always go to see a policeman. I didn't know what to do then. :cry: :? :shock:

Those were the days

Trollies! - no, not that sort. Every kid used to have one. 4 old pram wheels, two planks of wood, a six inch bolt for the steering pin, a bit of old 'rope' washing line to steer it with and an old orange box as a seat.

Argh - them where the days!
