    ive 3 other brothers 2 are younger and we all got bathed on sunday nights.

    Thing with a bath after you where about to get out the dirt in the water which was from the person having the bath the dirt floats in the water and when you get out you have some of it on you.

    I was never allowed to have Matey. Most of the time we didn't even use proper bubble bath. It was usually a squirt of washing up liquid.

    Yes, I used to dread Sunday nights as a child - school in the morning, and all that. Sir Harry Secombe visiting the Grampian Television region on Highway.

    But after a wash, there was That's Life! and Spitting Image, Hale and Pace, and Clive James or Tarrant on TV.

    Sundays were so awful back in the 1980s - no shops open, omnibus edition of EastEnders, and other things. I am glad things have improved now.

    When I stayed at my grandparents late sixties Granny would sit me on the draining board in the kitchen where she would wash me

    After that I used the bathroom. Afterwards I would get dressed in the lounge but shyly in front of the news reader on the TV. I thought they could see me lol

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    and i'll 'ave me bath each Saturday night
    whether i need it or not"

    As a kid growing up in the Eighties in a dull backwater of a town, Sundays were always empty, dead days. Just whiling away the time before the school week started up the next day. Sunday teatimes were always a visit to my Grandad and Great Aunt. Being given a cup of weak, sweet tea in a light-blue plastic mug. And salad sandwiches, which I hated. It would be getting dark outside. On the TV would be something like Seal Morning, or Return Of The Antelope. Then something completely dismal and prosaic, such as Antiques Roadshow. And bloody Bullseye. When it was time to come home, the walk up the path was a head-clearing noseful of fresh air after an hour of cigarette smoke, parental gossip and sandwiches. You could usually catch the smell of a coal fire or a damped down garden fire most Sunday evenings, especially in winter. Most of the houses in the cul-de-sac were closed up for the night, with usually just a living-room light on and the dead, end of week gloom was everywhere. Once at home, there was no going back. A bath, with the radio on playing the Pepsi Chart Show was inevitable. As was school the next morning.


    Sundays are indeed the long dark teatime of the soul.
