Tiny Tim: “oh mother, shan’t we have a pumpkin to carve?”

“No Tiny Tim! Carve your turnip and be thankful it’s not a tomato like last year!”

Yeah, it stunk, even with a nightlight. no little electric lights then, and not even electricity during the 3-day week!
Don't think I saw a real pumpkin until years and year later. I've bought a pumkin this year 'cos its cheap food, little buggers can go elsewhere for their treats. I fancy some roast pumkin and garlic & pumpkin soup.

We just turn all the lights out so the kids don’t know we are home. Saves on the leccy and giving them anything.

I remember when it started to be a thing in London, teen toe rags came knocking with a baseball bat, let your tyres down if they didn't get cash....scum mothers with kiddies encouraged them to throw flour paste with dried peas on my door - I wasn't even in!
