    Huge roses with terrifyingly big thorns in the garden
    Big spiders in the garden shed
    Psychedelic patterns on the carpets
    A grandfather clock ticking
    The clickerty clack of knitting needles
    Those pink wafer biscuits
    Sitting on a bench with my back against a boiler in the kitchen
    Tomato soup and cheese sandwiches
    Black and White tiles in the bathroom
    Stillness
    Endless conversations about people long dead
    A picture of the flying Scotsman in the hallway
    Tins of peas
    No phone and no TV
    A general feeling of melancholy for the past

    Very clean
    a big model ship and shire horse pulling a cart
    home made cakes, apple pie, pancakes, jam
    pink wafer biscuits
    fresh fruit and veg from the plot, peas from the pod
    soda stream
    playing with my toy cars around the swirls in the carpet
    Jim Reeves or Crystal Gail on the very good stereo
    red kola
    breakfast rolls
    the smell of motorbikes and onions in the garage
    old spice
    the sun through the kitchen window and a fine view of Banarty hill
    rough local kids
    packs of dogs
    oor wullie and the broons
    snowballs and macaroons
    being ‘the wee boy’ and grans favourite
    gift in pink and white striped bags
    such happy happy times with my gran and grandad, getting teary now. 😳

    I really hope my son has such fond memories of his gran, but I’m sure he will.

    Almost every contribution to this thread I grin wistfully to myself & think “yeh, that too” – or have a private moment trying to get the fly out of my eye

    As my son would say EPIC thread
