Girls wearing ties!
Paisleys and argyles


We had to wear our ties for school, or else we'd get a fine of 50p. Anyone remember?! If you wore a round neck school jumper you'd also need to pay 50p because the tie couldn't be seen Can't Believe It
V necked jumpers only!

- Bowl sinks - So impractical; How do you clean the counter? Never understood the appeal of this trend when a nice counter with a smooth seamless integrated sink is technologically possible.

- Counter seating in the kitchen instead of a normal table. Who would want this? If I am in a cafe, I never choose to perch on a high stool if a comfy normal-height chair is available. This is only suitable if you are by yourself and slurping down a quick coffee and don't want to interact with others. Totally weird for a family setting. My home is not an Edward Hopper painting.


- Shabby chic - peeling paint, battered wood. Ugh. I guess it matches ripped jeans and frayed hems.


What's counter seating? We have bar stools by our island, and a table and chairs.

Sky dancer toys. Movies on VHS tapes. Floppy disks for school work. Pop tarts that were kosher way back in the day.

I remember when the fax machine was invented, and discussing it with my friend. We were in awe of the idea! And we talked about the concept of video phones! Gosh I feel old šŸ˜‚

Someone mentioned modelscoat I really miss them , they where sooo comfy and easy to wear I had a good few for the week plus matching tichels , we wore the miami knots. I wish these robes would come back to style. p.s. You can still buy them in lingerie , but very few wear them.

What about the paskesz string licorice? Not pull and peel. It came in a figure 8 and was so hard to chew. My favorite. I still dream about it sometimes

Removing the blue plastic round piece from under soda caps, removing the inner circle from that, and stretching the blue till it became a bracelet and wearing multiple of these on our hands.
