Daily Prompt: The Transporter

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.

The chimes of Watch With Mother… followed by the gentle piano introduction to The Woodentops every Friday lunchtime. ‘Nuff said.

… and the very biggest Spotty dog you ever did see.

I liked The Woodentops because it had twins in it, the only twins that I knew of apart from me and my  sister. It’s a bit worrying now to think that a boy and girl pair were supposedly identical! I guess that the puppet maker must have left the interesting bits out…

How about the tune for Rag, Tag and Bobtail? (Thursdays)

I was entranced weekly by the magical world of Rag, Tag and Bobtail – and I loved the baby bunnies.

All these years on, those simple chimes still have the power to transport me back to that little sitting room in our 2-up-2-down in Sheffield and the coccoon-like world of Watch With Mother.
