Bottle green knickers.

Bottle green knickers.

 

I had to wear school uniform at my secondary school.. and actually I didn’t mind too much; it was simple to get dressed and green is my favourite colour, and I even like the bottle green of our uniform. We had plain green skirts, white blouses or white or pale blue polo shirts, green tie with a light blue stripe, and a bottle green jumper or cardigan. There were all sorts of rules about indoor and outdoor shoes, lengths of skirts (when mini-skirts were in) but on the whole I thought it was a sensible and practical uniform. We also had games kit, green divided skirts, airtex tops… and bottle green knickers…

So it was only right that when our school year had a reunion celebrating our time at The Cambridgeshire County High School for Girls, we should have a cake with a particular design:

Mrs Johnson (English) Miss Rothery (PE) and Mrs Mumby (History) cut the cake.

  2. I really can say that I don’t think I have ever seen a cake with a pair of knickers on top of it before!

  3. Omg, I had to wear bottle green knickers too – thick and all-consuming ones! It’s left me with an emotional inability to wear anything flimsy now!
