WHEN I WAS SMALL...

When I was small...

The days SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much longer!

The cream eggs SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much bigger!

The money SEEMED to go so-o-o-o much further!

The sun SEEMED to shine for so-o-o-o much longer!

The winters SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much frostier!

The snow SEEMED to fall and stay so-o-o-o much thicker!

The wild flowers SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much brighter!

The people SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much friendlier!

The pace of life SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much slower!

The steam trains SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much nicer!

The buses SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much prompter!

The shop assistants SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much pleasanter!

The food SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much scrummier!

The adults SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much kinder!

The children SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much happier!

The beds SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much snugglier!

The coal fires SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much cosier!

The buildings SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much fewer!

The cars SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much slower!

The churches SEEMED to be so-o-o-o muc fuller!

The views people had of life SEEMED to be so-o-o-o much clearer...

... Didn't they?
