I loved their advertsing jingle and I thought it would be marvellous to be considered a pretty face and be allowed to buy their floaty floral clothes.
I also DESPERATELY wanted life to be like a box of chocolates, try saying that without a Forrest Gump twang!
Most specifically I wanted life to be like a Dairy Box advert.
Not when the box looked like this hideous thing But when the art work simplier and the women in the ad were dressed in white floaty (that word again) cotton and cheesecloth frocks and reminded me of Sara Moon pictures.
The ads were full of sunshine, cricket matches, panama hats, all ages mingling and laughing, dogs, wicker chairs, croquet, a jolly vicar, good times and love. Thankfully some knind soul has put them on you tube where I can go and get my fix.
The people used in the ads were mostly blonde. My dad has 2 blonde half sisters who are about 15 years older me than and I thought they were the prettiest most glamourous things on the planet.
Finally I wanted to sit in a field of poppies and paint. Wearing, yes you've guessed it, something floaty.
Flakes are still one of my most favourites.
