Bread slices are getting smaller, I have got an old fashioned toastie maker, the type that clamps together and you hold over the hob to cook. Where once the bread hung over the edge and had to be reamed off from around the edge with a knife, now the bread barely fits inside it.
Makes tasty cheese toasties. Yumm.

If you come from the Yarmouth area in Norfolk and you are the wrong side of 40 (?) then you will have fond memories of Matthes bread baked in Gorleston-on-sea.
I wouldn't like to say how many times I walked past their factory gates down Englands lane salivating at the aroma of baking bread and cakes.
Sadly shut up shop many years ago and is now just a distant - but very pleasant - memory.

On a similar vein... I remember walking to my granndma's (Hunslet area of Leeds) and walking past Brays bakery on Hunslet Road... same smell, no doubt.

Ask anyone what their favourite smell is, and I'll bet a very large percentage will say "the smell of baking bread"!!

The great thing about grandma's on a saturday morning was that she baked her own bread, and when I got there, there was always a warm oven bottom cake waiting... dripping with real butter. :)

My walk from digs to uni in Southampton took me past a bakery. The smell was fabulous: really set me up for a morning's study (or whatever.) Their bread was awful. When I went back to uni for a reunion last month I took a stroll back to the old digs and the bakery was knocked down. It's now a Tesco car park - paved with the last batch of that grotty bread for all I know.
Sworn, b'loody!
