Hunting down abandoned buildings and egging each other on to go inside (because they're all haunted).
getting excited about christmas/birthdays
we'd challenge ourselves to do an arbitary number of communal keepy-uppy. (And if we hit our target then we'd just raise the bar and start again. Great days).
we'd hose the ball off for a while til it was shiny and white again and you could see it better for a bit longer.
i would have got a magazine, lucozade and a sandwich or toast cut into small triangles. Plus a few grapes or small orange.
I miss being small and sick at home.
giving how much i was enjoying my sandwiches and grapes.
another one is getting a midnight snack from my mum and dad if they got an Indian at the weekend. We'd get a really small plate with a few chips some rice and sauce.
why are all mine food related. :(
We used to do all the old tricks with clear nail varnish and vinegar.
Do kids even still play conkers these days?
I was crap.
And apparently I still 'throw like a girl.'
without people judging.
i tried to walk up them the last time i was home and almost broke my neck
if you use the bannister support to swing around and carry your momentum onto the stairs after running down the hall. It's just a natural thing to do whenever I'm there. one minute I'm in the lounge, the next I'm in my room, looking cool.
im really sorry i ever started dying it.
but I'm sure everything was just less painful
Knocking on friends doors to see if they want to go out.
Taking a football to the park and just playing with whoever was there at the time.
Though I do still indulge sometimes when nobody's looking.
hiding in hedges
farting on siblings pillow
And for people to think I'm cute as a result.
and thus a treat wasn't just something i enjoyed eating, it was also a surprise. now when i get to eat hobnobs/posh crisps/whatever, i know it's been in the cupboard ever since i went to the shop.
Racing all the other kids home from school
filling a plastic tub with half penny sweets
kiss chase / stampede / british bulldog
having a full head of hair
experiencing things for the first time
rewinding cassettes with a biro
no longer live near dartmoor for the slopes
no half pennies anymore
kiss chase - i think i'd get arrested and i'm a little on the stocky side to join the average playground game of the other two without breaking a few legs and getting arrested
xmas stocking - not without packing it myself and i'll be too busy wrapping presents for my little one
sure there are some things i could experience for the first time but not the really fun stuff
all my cassettes are gone, all my cds are gone i could spin a vinyl on a broom handle but probably not worth it and buying cassettes again is too retro cool for me
definitely lost my innocence for good aged 9
not the same anymore
Damn, kids are weird.
