Red Nose Day.... When I Was A Kid

I remember the first comic relief... 25 years ago... does that make old?? don't answer that!

When I was a kid.....we all rushed out & bought the most awful hard plastic red noses that made you sore if you wore them for too long. We all paid a price to go to school in anything other than uniform, worth the 50p you'll agree :) The evenings tv was full up with fun & laughter, most enjoyable.

Now... some 25 years on I don't watch Comic Relief, yes it has some fun sketches but the it's the whole pulling at heartstrings bit that I just can't take anymore, I end up an emotional wreck. Once it gets back to a funny sketch you mop up your face, start to laugh & enjoy yourself & then all of a sudden BAM... they hit you with another relief story & you're back to hugging the tissue box again. I'm sorry Comic Relief, nowadays I just add my donation & enjoy a tear free friday.

Here I share with you the fun side of Red Nose Day.... the twins enjoying playing with their soft, foamy red noses, with thanks to Nanna & Grandad.

Happy Friday :)
