When I asked the question 'What's the ONE thing you remember from your childhood home that you SWORE you'd never have in your house as an adult? Did you stick to your vow?' the phone lines and social media went nuts! I love it when you join in - here's a list of just SOME of the best responses..... :-)
'A coat rack in the kitchen - my parka always smelled of chips'
A copper canopy over the fireplace
Plastic bath racks
Vesta Ready Meals
'Only having a coal fire to heat the whole house'
China figurines (sorry, former paintresses and designers!)
'Tiles with budgies on them' ( !! )
'That vile picture of a child with REALLY big eyes, crying'
Teapots thick with tanin because they never got washed
'One of those hideous, knitted crinoline dolls on the toilet roll'
'A sitting room nobody was allowed to go into'
'Mellow Birds' coffee
Pink toilet seat covers and pedestal mats
....and finally, from Brad - the ONLY one I have to disagree with.... 'A drawer full of rubbish in the kitchen - paper bags, old plugs, rubber bands etc'.... oh Brad, no no no! EVERY house needs a drawer like that - even in 2017!
See you soon on Signal 2 :-)
