What do you remember about your childhood?

I was brought up in Britain in the 1950s and 1960s, so I have a particular set of memories.

Do you remember early closing of shops on Wednesday and early release from work on Friday? These days, shops are open all the time and people work all the time.

Do you remember being sent home early from school because of fog, thalidomide babies being born with deformed limbs, or people dying from tuberculosis? Some things have got better.

In fact, I feel that the timing of my birth has led me to be part of a blessed generation, as I explain here.
