"'End in sight' for freezing weather", the BBC website tells us. Indeed. I believe it's also called "spring".
"There was also a selection of lies relating to 'fantasy characters', also used to enforce good behaviour, such as in the run-up to Christmas."
You mean to tell me that, despite the assertions from my parents, there is no Father Christmas?!

Re. parental lies. My mum used to tell me that ice cream vans played music when there was no ice cream left.

In the days before AS-levels, we didn't spend our Lower Sixth year on "school plays, forming bands and writing bad poetry". We spent that year studying hard for our mock A-levels, which our teachers would use to make the predictions of A-level grades on which our university applications depended.
