    Actually one my grandfather had from his days in an English school as was the norm at the time he grew up. He didn’t do sport but was great at cleaning them for the next match.

    @ARYANTO lol I use one every day! This is my Mom's, which she had for as long as I can remember!! It was always next to the stove, but I use it now for my coffee teaspoons.

    I got Monopoly out of the garage. This set has been in our family since I was in Primary School - and that was a looong time ago! It's looking rather the worse for wear and most of the Title Deeds have disappeared. Brings back good memories though!

    @ARYANTO I wonder how many women darn socks these days? I haven't a clue how to! We live in a disposable age.

    But I'll let you into a little secret. I keep any old socks with holes in them, and use them as mod pouches in my bag! Works very well too, let me tell you - especially for tube mods like the iJust3 or Vaporesso. But even my Picos nestle comfortably in an old sock!!

    I'm not a hands-on person so I don't repair things, but neither do I just throw things away. It's actually fun finding another use for something!!

    @ARYANTO Ahhhhhh Matchbox cars were my brother's pride and joy! Strange how we all seem to have a collector's instinct. As an adult he collect Toby Jugs and what a stunning collection he has too!

    @Room Fogger, some of these are actually in use at a coffee shop called Boeretroos, in Yzerfontein. The funny thing is that I've never noticed them until a day or two ago, but I believe they've always been there!

    I just showed these to my son, mentioning that the 3.5” floppy disk used to hold a massive 1.4mb of data. He’s still on the floor, laughing!

    Agreed, it a masterpiece @ARYANTO .My Mom inherited her grandmothers one, then lent it and some other antiques to friends who started a farm venue for functions as part of the decor/ museum they made. Closed and all of a sudden they don’t remember her ever “lending” anything to them, same with a kiaat riempie bench my grandfather made, but the wheel turns.

    In Primary School we used to cover our books with brown paper - and put a glittery sticker on the front to customise it! What fun that was!
