I was reading a DCI Banks book this morning. He was remembering, in 2010, his daughter and her friend (currently aged 24, so born in 1986) playing hopscotch and whip'n'top.
Whip'ntop? That was old fashioned when I were a lass, and I'm 57 this year. The girls would have been playing in the early 90s. Reverting, Peter Robinson? I know it's set in rural Yorkshire, but they aren't that far behind the times.
