    What can you remember most from your childhood in terms of TV programmes, sweets, clothes even???

    I remember going to Barbados for the first time when I was 10 (my mum is from there) and I was dressed head to toe in Bay City Rollers gear!!! :eek: Of course, I looked great!

    OMG I remember cutting up a brand new pair of trousers to edge them with tartan a la Bay city Roller style.

    My mother had forty fits about it, slapped me and and sent me to my room whilst she drank tea and chatted to her friend who had brought her yappy horrible smelly poodle with her.

    The darned dog then ate my beautiful golly that I loved more than anything and my mother saying it served me right for cutting up my trousers :S

    I also remember winning a fancy dress competition dressed as King Tutankhamen in an outfit borrowed from my next door neighbour LMAO

    Oh and mustn't forget hot pants and chopper bikes and rushing home to watch Six Million Dollar Man on a Saturday night whilst eating banana sarnies for tea :D
