Either at our house, but I do remember the dilly cart coming round every week to empty out the outside toilet, no flush toilets for us when I were a lad.I remember the council having to put drains across all the back gardens of the houses where I lived so we could be connected to mains drainage.. made things smell a little sweeter..

The corporation muck cart
Was full right to the brim
The driver fell in backwards,
And found he could not swim
He sank right to the bottom
Just like a little stone
And as he sank, he gurgled
There's nooo place like home!


Etc etc

Doing away with the milkman was the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it......

But at least I've got dinky models of 1 and 3 to remind me of the good old days.....not sure about 2....that may have been before my time....

What makes me smile is the thought of you having to suffer through watching One Erection (up each of their arses) on the Today Show

Yeah, I had to leave the room. I'm not feeling good as it is and the incessant screaming wasn't improving things.

But, if it's any consolation, I've had to suffer the last 5 weeks of finding out little known facts (because dd didn't have her tweenie friends to confer about all of this) about One Direction. I discovered, thankfully, that many of her friend's moms have iPhones and I could plug my daughter into her friends on Face Time and she could tell them all of these lovely facts. Unfortunately the time difference was the only issue.
