Choosing retro sweets from jars, and the smell of new erasers takes me right back to my childhood.

Meeting up with my dear friend Kath that I grew up with, we have known each other since we were toddlers. We meet up as middle aged women and within minutes we are giddy schoolgirls again, it's better than therapy!
