I have a thing about floodlights!

Ever since I was an ankle-biter, I have had a thing about floodlights. I always wanted floodlights for those magnetic football games that used to be around, and also for my Scaletrix! I was ok for grandstands - I used to make those out of cigarette packets - but I could never make floodlights.

All you needed were some lolly sticks and a few of those old camera flash cubes ( you can see I had brothers can't you), plus silver paper from your dad's fag packet and voila floodlights!

You might not have been able to make them years ago,
but you are certainly in them today,

Father Christmas once bought me the floodlight set to go with my Arsenal Subbuteo team - both of which turned out to be a major disappointment, and I don't mean Father Christmas.

Hi Viki,
I remember those floodlights! Were you a Charlie George supporter?:)
