Things we did, but kids now don’t understand.

We grew up with adverts on every channel except bbc, with no way of fast forwarding them.

We learnt to tell the time using an analogue clock, and in roman numerals too. A lot of children either can’t, or struggle to read either of these. They are used to having digital clocks everywhere.

We used to go to the video rental shop, or the library and hire a video or DVD for the week. Now people just stream them online.

More families used to cook from scratch together, and pass on these skills. Maybe they’d have a takeaway on a Friday. Now there are microwave meals, and fast food deliveries any day of the week – even Sunday.

We grew up with pretty much everything being shut on a Sunday, now you can do loads of things on a Sunday as places and shops are open.

We used to take empty drink bottles and returned them, for a few pennies, or a discount on the reply drink.
