Friday Frivolity: Lies We Tell Our Children

Friday Frivolity pinnable image

Little white lies make the world go round, and nowhere is that more obvious than when it comes to the fibs we tell our children. Like the classic:

If you eat your crusts...

And the myth which is only ever a grandparent away from being thoroughly debunked:

When I was your age...

And the well intentioned but rarely realistic:

If you tell me the truth, I won't be angry!




Now on to the link-up! :D

  3. LOL! My parents never told the "tell me, and I won't be angry" lie. They told the truth: "tell me, or it will be worse if I have to find out myself". Thank you for sharing and hosting!

  4. Wow, you nailed it!!
    I told some lies to my kids, but I'm really trying not to tell any to my grands. Lying is such a bad habit, and it's sin.

    1. It's hard because so much of childhood is based on white lies - Santa, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy!

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale.
