When I was 5 years old I had to have my appendix out and the best present I was given while in hospital, was from my teacher, it was a REAL egg!! I shared it with the girl in the bed next door. We both though it was brilliant!!!

I remember the time my mother thought it was a good idea to cook chips in cod liver oil! It tasted horrible and so she only did it the once; we did everything we could to make the coupons last as long as possible.
