The toys we left behind
Time for telly
Hands up if you thought Mrs Slocomb’s pussy was just a pet? Or if can’t think Roobarb and Custard without hearing “diddlee dee, diddlee dee” in your head? Telly was brilliant in the 1970s, but what was particularly good about it was the lack of choice. My kids are horrified when I tell them that we only had three channels and everyone watched telly together.
And everything else
Of course, looking back (even when I take off the pink specs) it seems marvellous, colourful and exciting, just the way our children will look back at their first smart phones and the time when the first Lego Movie came out. And their children will roll their eyes and sigh.
I hope I’m around to see how much bigger and better the classic sweeties have become by then.
