    Poor kids

    When I was at school, it was really depressing to see the "Back to School" posters in shoe shops etc. This tended to be couple of weeks before the summer holidays ended. It seems the signs have been going up earlier and earlier but this is taking the mickey!

    Not to worry - in a couple of weeks Selfridges in London will be setting up their Christmas section.

    No. Really. I only wish I was joking.

    The thing is..............

    When we were at school, it only felt like it was a couple of weeks of "Back to School" stuff and nonsense, because there wasn't the all-day every-day TV that we have now!

    Growing up in the 70's/80's, TV was a thing of beauty, and adverts could be appreciated. Now, you know that it will be Aug Bank Hols when the first Xmas advert comes on, Jan 2nd for easter eggs in the shops, and many many more examples.

    The rampant commercialisation of every aspect of our lives continues unabated!
