I just love this!

Per kindness of the Ladybird Archive Collection:


School dinners were liver and onions rather than Turkey Twizzlers

A Blackberry was something you picked in a country lane and not something you spent your weekend ignoring

MySpace was a den in your garden, built with bed sheets and runner bean canes

Noah, Isaac and Joshua were characters from the Bible rather than kids in your class

Wheelies were what you did on your bike in the park and not what you wore on your feet for the weekly shop

And if you wanted to be an astronaut, train driver, footballer or anything other than a CELEBRITY when you grew up CONGRATULATIONS

You are a product of the Ladybird generation.

Yep!  That’s me.

    Yes, that’s definitely me, too! I have a friend who collects Ladybird books he has a whole book-shelf full. It is hard not to lose huge amounts of time to nostalgia 🙂
