    About when I started primary school aged 5. Getting up in the winter for school those days never forgotten. Ice on windows already mentioned. Getting washed with cold tap water lots of times. Baths in a tin bath in the living room in front of the fire (don’t remember actually doing this but heard it talked about).

    Walked uphill to our school and quite a long way for little ones. In the snow this was really hard, freezing cold feet and hands and exhausting. Mum bought me and my sister over-shoes so that our school shoes that my dad polished army fashion would be still good when we got there. Mum bought me sheepskin gloves because my hands were constantly blue and numb (I still have cold hands often).

    When we got home my mum would have the oven range lit and we’d sit near it for warmth and have whatever she’d made, and often she’d get a book out and read us a story.

    We moved to a brand new house when I was 7 in a different area. So my previous experiences were not repeated. But the memories will never leave me.

    I recall Christmas eve. Looking out of the bedroom window. It was early evening, snowing and dark but in the street lights I could see the beer delivery to the pub across the road. Vaux brewery used, I believe shire horses, and there they stood 4 horses stamping their hooves and breathing steam. It was a lovely sight.

    You lucky devil. I've always wanted one. We've had large tents and a variety of caravans, the last one wrecked in the tornado that hit Portugal, Iove the idea of just being able to up and go. Have a lovely time. Yes it was 2 years wasted but now you can make up for it.

    While we are talking about random stuff we are presently in York, this is our second trip out in our motorhome. The motorhome took us 2 years to decide to buy, partly because my husband was determined to get a campervan until he realised he was too tall for the bed. In my mind that was 2 years wasted

    The past is gone forever, the future hasn't happened so now is all that what counts.

    denise have you tried putting a nice new fluffy pillow in a good quality pillow protector before putting the pillow case on. It seems to help for some reason 🤷‍♂️

    I remember waking up to wonderful ice patterns on the inside of the windows and scraping them with our fingers and mum shouting at me and my brother because the glass would break.
    heavy snow in the 60s and us kids clearing a path in the snow around the block.
    standing on the frozen duck pond and coming home with cold wet feet. Mum putting plastic bags round our hands and feet because we were running out of dry socks and gloves.
    the biggest strip of ice across the school playground and everyone taking turns. Bet it wouldn't be allowed now.
    being sent home from school because the boiler had broken down.
    walking with my dad carefully down a slight drop in the pavement towards the underpass and my poor dad falling over. Not being able to help him up for laughing. 😄
