Mum and Dad and lots of friends too but apart from people,

Food that actually tasted, ie. tomatoes, strawberries and most other fruits too. Sometimes I wonder if I were blindfolded if I could tell if it was potato or apple I was eating.

The promise of the future.

Lascivious thoughts which gave me many hours of entertainment and enjoyment.

Tillybaby, tomatoes! Didn't we used to get these from Guernsey, then when Spain joined EEC, they sent their's here, and Guernsey could not compete, as they were, and still are not, part of the EEC? Presumbly, Guernsey no longer grow them. Some strawberries are OK, from Waitrose I am told, but not tried them.

Going out for the day on your bike with jam sandwiches aged 10 or so, without everyone getting paranoid over your whereabouts.

They still grow tomatoes on Guernsey, and they're beautiful I'm told (I don't like tomatoes).

It's not that Guernsey isn't part of the EU, the problem is that Spain is a massive country, and they've built massive green houses on the south west coast where they manage to produce several crops a year. The Channel Islands just can't compete with that sort of volume.
