When I was a little girl I always felt that the weekend was starting off on a good note if I had a new bag of sweets on a Friday afternoon. I guess some things never change. ;) I do pace myself better now, though. Back then, I used to get a packet of Dolly Mixtures, Liquorice Allsorts or something else just as sickly but yummy, and eat three quarters of the packet in the back of the car on the way home. Not only would I sicken myself of them before I even got home, but what I’d hoped would last a week suddenly was barely lasting an hour. How easily I learned so young to rationalise with myself that just one more jelly would be alright, and of course I could then make the last quarter bag hang out for six and a bit more days, just so I could have that gratifying chew right there and then while I drew smiley faces on the steam on the inside of the car’s back window! While I’m reluctant to say I’ve grown up, it’s true that these days I have changed enough so that I hoard goodies in tins for weeks! And I put my smiley faces on computer screens.
Have a lovely weekend!
