A trip in to the city was never complete without mum taking us to Darrell Lea for a treat at the end of the day’s shopping. We were allowed to choose one thing. My brother ALWAYS chose Rocklea Road. (I tried to discover something different every time.) Now that I have my own family, I realise that our treat was mum’s tactic: a bribe to keep us well behaved while she was shopping! And it worked.
