STILL on the subject of pobs memories – as a child they were the only things that made having a sore throat bearable. My mum used to sometimes put in a few raisins and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Incidentally, did anyone else have sugar sandwiches? These were a slice of bread and butter dipped in the sugar basin - they were also a sign that it was the end of the week and the money had run out.
