When you were a kid- what did you think was really posh? Things that you envied when you went to a mates house?
For me it was Imperial Leather soap- a bar of soap with a label and edges.We just had a big lump of Fairy soap
What was your envy?

RR- you've never lived!
The bog was down t'yard when I was young. Soap itself was a luxury.
And- yes! The label still stays on to the end.
Wrights coal tar soap was also a luxury. I lived on Daubhill then- and so High St baths were where you went to get really clean

This fat kid, he was always stuffing his face with toffees and they had a carpet in their living room.

Central heating was posh to me as a kid! We used to have to group round an electric fire with them bars. In my teenage years my mum discovered calor gas fires, this was much better but still not as posh as everyone else's heating!

I'm from the generation that didn't have an inside toilet, running hot water and all the other stuff mentioned above but I'd like to add to that list - no telephone had to use a neighbours (corner shop) or telephone box, no car, there were a couple of work vans in the street I lived on but I don't recall anyone owning their own car, and finally a tarmaced street - we had cobblestones front and back!

Happy days!
