When I was a spotty schoolboy in the Sixties I would come home from school [or skoo] on a Friday and celebrate with a large jam butty and a huge glass of milk.
The butty would be made from Mother's Pride, the very whitest and softest of bread, stork margarine or Lurpak butter and a thick filling of Robinsons strawberry jam with whole strawberries in it. On biting into it the jam would squeeze out from the sides of the butty and go all over my hands. I used to love licking the sticky stuff off my fingers like a dog!
The milk was full cream from the Milk man, a pint bottle in the fridge and poured into a tall hi-ball glass. If I was feeling posh I might have had a straw but mostly I liked to gulp it down in as few gulps as possible. I would finish with a dramatic 'aaaaaaa' and wipe the milk-tash from my face with the back of my arm as if I'd just done a 15 hour shift down the pit!
Nowadays its a much less interesting affair, a strong cup of Yorkshire tea and a Mars Bar from Aldi called Mister Choc.
What did you have have when you got home from school readers?
