And anything for the weekend sir?

As a kid I remember the barber asking my dad that, I wondered what that was all about then.

It reminds me of the graffiti on pub walls next to the vending machine in the blokes toilets.

"Buy me and stop one.... Buy 2 and be one jump ahead"

Loved Nibbets, weren't they made from potato? Can you still get them?

 

I can recall the name..were they made from corn?  shaped like workman's tools? Spanners, Hammers etc..became 'sophisticated' and introduced S&V...Later?

 

I recall Vesta, yes, camping...

 

The first time I heard the word Pizza was about '71, after footy practice, mate ran home because it would be getting cold...?

 

Grandad always liked Camp Coffee, nobody else did! along with vista, their was another popular Indian food brand,that he liked, think that it began with a B?

That's not the Nibbits I remember, the ones I recall were more like "French fries" in shape. Apparently Pom Bears from Morrisons and I assume other supermarkets taste very similar.

Camp Coffee,

My dad would only drink Camp Coffee, with chicory essence. I think it was a throwback from the war. It was just about acceptable if it was made with a full cup of milk.

Camping for us was tins of Fray Bentos stewed steak, packets of Surprise peas and Deb mashed potato. All carried on your back along with the tent, sleeping bag, calor gas stove and cooking and eating utensils

would that be Britannia? I remember eating their snacks when I was working in India.

Nibbets were nothing like pom bears, quavers or whatever. They were, in shape, very similar to vesta crispy noodles only straighter.

They had their own unique taste. I loved starting at one end and nibbling down the piece like a rabbit. That's  why they were called Nibbets. Another favourite when I were about 10, was a cup of Oxo and slice of bread for a penny, at the YMCA. Still have that now sometimes for me evening drink, while 'er indoors has Ovaltine.

I knew how to spend me money back then. Didn't need bus fare home Phil., the YMCA was on the other side of our street. That is, until they closed it and moved the club to join in with a club on Willoughby Street (I think). For some reason, Monty Hind club comes to mind.

Thankyou Lizzie. We managed this year to have a fairly " normal ?" Celebration. We invited some of my inlaws ( just 3 sisters and 1 Partner). We only had a cake and a few nibbles and  couple of bottles of bubbly but it was nice to be together in company. We had decided to sit outside so I put cushions on all the chairs then it got windy so we stayed in the kitchen.

Great day yesterday.....two of my Grandsons (9 and 6) spent the day with us...not seen em for about a year........i'm not an openly doting Grandad but i do love em to bits.......they spent all day playing on the Garden...mostly football...so decided to see if i'd still got any of my old skills.........much to their pleasure (and mine) i had..........

         They loved it and couldnt stop laughing...I'd put my shorts and football socks on and was actually running with em...didnt think i still could....

              They chanted ''Grandad'' ''Grandad'' so obviously played to the crowd.......felt ten years younger...when they went home...

           Made me realise how much i'd missed em......to top it all..when the Daughter picked em up.....i saw my nearly two year old Grandaughter........who is obviously beautiful and full of cheeky character.........all in all a wonderful day............

CT which "old" photo? Last years 50 th anniversary one? No it won't be that one because we forgot to take any photos....busy catching up with in laws. I did take a few before they arrived though, but none with us. The only one was a video pic with my brother in law in France. He kept saying

" bacio, bacio, (kiss) so we did and he took the photo and sent it.

The one on Facebook a few days ago; you and your husband a few years ago.

 

 

...and I'm not sure what the problem is with posting photos here, but although they don't seem to work when you post them, I've edited the original and made it appear.

49 years ago today, I was trying to push a bowling ball through the eye of a needle! Well, that's what it felt like giving birth,  haha. This is the last year coming up when I've still got all 3 in their 40's. Getting old? Moi? Nooooo.
