Going to the shop as a kid and asking the shopkeeper for a '10p mix up bag' and he/she would select 10 random sweets and put them in a bag. Shame you can't do that anymore.

Sunny days, no worries, years stretching ahead of us, young vigorous parents, loving school, carefree times - loving sweets and treats!
I remember telling my first boyfriend that I was interested in him by way of Love Hearts...shyly giving him one that said "Hug Me" :D
Stealing pic n mix from my Grandad's corner shop and getting caught!!
The earliest memory available within my brain. I was around 5/6 years old and was in the local park with my parents. The fun fair was in the park today so it was very exciting. I took one look at the ferris wheel and took off like the wind towards it. Whilst running my shoe came off, but I never noticed, the excitement took away my sense of feeling to my feet and in my socks I continued running to the fair whilst my parents laughed.

30 years ago- me looking lovely for St Davids day! My favourite film was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and so I pretended that the daffodil was edible like in the film. It wasn't.
nagging my mum to pop in the sweet shop on the way home from school for some sweets everyday

This was my 4 year old son at his first football match! it is such a happy memory because he absolutely loves football, as do I. We chose to take him when he was 4, because this is when I went to my first match, at the age of 4! we had a fantastic day!

This is my sweet memory. My 6yr old (5 in this picture ) daughter was picked to be mascot for her cheer-leading troupe. I was an emotional wreck as she danced her heart out to win her first competition. She continued to win the next comp and finals too. This year she did so well they have made her the leader of her section and already working so hard as she knows it’s a very important role
