Ok, so for all you guys across that big puddle, this is what growing up in the UK was like for all of us over here during the 70’s and 80’s. And for all you Tumblies who grew up here, just see how many of these you remember and back me up on just how accurate this is.

I suddenly feel like a kid again!!

New watch. 
1950s Italian style.
It’s only a repro (of course) but even the Italian military had style.

Got to spend the day with my little girl yesterday. This is what I found waiting when I first arrived.

So a guy came in to work today, saw this and said; “Imported American chocolate, what’s that?”

Erm … it’s chocolate … that’s been imported … from America. 

Really, how was I supposed to answer this one without sounding condescending?

Got my grade back for my first assessment …

I got a merit! That’s only one level below a distinction!!!!

I’m actually quite chuffed considering I realised I’d screwed up and decided to pretty much re-write from scratch over night the day before the deadline!

The scary thing is, this is all so true!!

"When I Am Dead, My Dearest" by Christina Rossetti - YouTube

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.
