I had the same! I remember the time Mum made jam and gave me a jar for the teacher. You can imagine what happened...!! I had a VERY sticky school case! I should do a page about mine - although I don't think I have a photo... And wasn't the grease-proof paper the most useless stuff?! Thank goodness for gladwrap!
I had one too! Thank you for the memories.
We used to wrap our frozen cordial drink bottle in a tea towel to help it stay at least partly frozen all the way to big lunch - and there was always some melted to drink at recess. Did your tuckshop sell vegemite crusts? They used to be 5 cents.
Absolutely the same here. I remember that rainbow coloured paper too and we never got it either. This is the first time I had thought of this in years. And yes I do remember the graduation to airline bag. Wow each couple of years we went to the tourist office to get a new bag. I remember one year my pride and joy was an orange Ansett bag. Such memories. Thanks for bringing them back for me. Great page!
