    Back to the chippie... Takeaway wrapped in newspaper as you walked down the street.
  7. What are you having for dinner today?

    Tonight's menu is: Slow Cooked Gammon Shanks with a caramelised Apple Sauce (M&S); Anya Potatoes. boiled in the skin; the rest is leftover (uncooked) veg from this week - A handful of sprouts, Asparagus, a small courgette and some carrot. Unfortunately, I have to go out into the badly forecast weather tomorrow for a Diabetic Screening Test, so will make good use of the outing and stock up for the further poor forecast for the weekend.
  8. Childhood Reminiscences

    Who remembers buying a 'pennerth' (pennyworth) of chips from the chippie? I think I also had the leftover bits from the fish batter! Maybe just a treat from the chippie server.

  11. Tripe

    I remember having it as a child, therefore not had it for decades. I always thought it had a horrible fatty paste on the linings. There were various different outer patterns. Can't recall how my mother prepared it - don't think I want to!
  12. Sticky Malt Loaves

    Jar of thick liquid.

  14. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Engaged

    I originate from 'The Potteries' area. ...Left there when I was 19, but I still keep in touch with a number of friends from my senior school days there - we meet up occasionally. It's amazing when we get back together; at first sight of those who I only see on rare occasions, I think "good grief. she looks old!". But, after a very short time, we all sound the same and sort of 'look the same' - we might well be back in the classroom.
