    Our first little house was a tiny terraced cottage in a Lincolnshire village with a coal fire, i'd be hoarding logs in the shed from late summer thru autumn for wintertime. Lovely smell of apple logs burning and a few logs on the hearth to go on next. Fond memories.

    One thing i miss is how neighbours bothered with each other.

    They visit each other and look out for each other.

    Spend time in each others houses.

    I speak from experience of seeing neighbours in my mums house when growing up.

    Almost everyone mentions summers being better when they were younger but I remember lots of rainy ones.

    I know about that one, but it was exceptional.

    1990, 1994 & 1995 were hot ones, with hosepipe bans being brought in.
