Mum’s Pennywise chocolate icecream - but ‘a la francaise’ as I couldn’t find any Carnation Evaporated Milk or Cadbury’s Drinking Chocolate Powder here. We at this all the time growing up. Totally unhealthy, but delicious and perfect for celebrating the first rays of summer sun. Check out the ‘DIY’ tab on my website www.madeupwednesdays.com for the ‘vintage’ (!) recipe.

When I was a kid, my Mum spent a lot of time cutting out sewing projects on the dining-room table. One of her favourite indulgences was the designer sewing kits from ‘Clothkits’. My sister and I had knitted Clothkits dresses, and Mum had a summer dress with a lily motif that she’d made from their designs. As a company, Clothkits eventually didn’t fare all that well, but was revived by enthusiasts in 2008. I was excited to buy ‘Tom’ from their website and set about putting him together as a birthday present for my son. Tom now does acrobatics in his crazy 70s clothes and is pushed around in a stripey blue pram - even though my son is now more into superheros than pretend parenting.
