    My children have never asked for it to be put on

    Maybe I need to encourage them ( I just want a badge I never got a badge think it had caused some deep rooted issues)

    Ah yes, the advent crown.

    We made it at school with a teacher who lacked the wit to use flame retardent tinsel. She applied a cigarette lighter to the first candle and WOOOFFFF!!!!! Alarm bells everywhere and an impromtu classroom evacuation ensued.

    Oh yes - them were t'days.

    That's it the Advent crown only slightly better than the advent thingy

    They certainly were the days doubt if teAchers would be able to use a wire coat hanger these days never mind actual matches

    I didn't know Blue Peter was still on.

    I once made Sindy furniture out of toothpaste boxes, matchboxes & split pins. Whenever I see a matchbox now I think how it would make a lovely little draw if I just covered it in stickyback plastic & used a split pin for the knob

    Ah, those were the days. Back in the dark ages when teachers were allowed cigarette lighters in the classroom & when health and safety was a mere glint in some do-gooders eye
