Today I decided to write on a lighter note. I was thinking about when I was younger before I went all crazy. I thought I would list some of the things I loved to do as a kid. Maybe you would like to think about this yourself, we all have some good memories, even if we are haunted by the bad.
The Floor Is Lava!: The funny thing about this is I thought me and my sister had created this game. However it seems to be a game that many kids had created or been taught. Interesting though.
Marbles: Marbles was so much fun for me because little did I know it covered a couple of my needs, collecting and gambling lol.
Freeze Tag: I loved this game. Actually any game of tag really. The thrill of being chased.
Favorite TV Shows:
Electra Woman and Dina Girl : I actually have a dvd of this and watching it now I realize just how cheesy it was, but still adore it! I remember me and my sister would tuck our t-shirts into our underwear and pretend to be them!
H.R. Pufnstuf : Again I own this still and am not sure what I liked about it, though it still makes me giggle.
Wonder Woman: Sense a theme here? I did and will always love Wonder Woman. I was a naughty girl who stole a giant comic book about her from the school because the library wouldn’t let me take it out anymore.
Gymnastics: This was my favorite thing to do in the world, I did flips and cartwheels all over the place instead of walking, hehe. I did this for 9 years and it kept me happy and focused while I did it.
Track and Field: I’m short, and have always been but that never stopped me from doing long jumps, high jumps and hurdles when I was a kid.
Autumn: Has and always will be. I know a lot of kids liked Christmas but I loved Halloween more. (still do!) Plus I loved the smells and the cool rains. The crispness of the air. I never liked being too warm.

Favorite Place To Be:
This one is so easy. Outside!! Most kids when I was young, never wanted to be home. We didn’t have computers or Ipads and cell phones. In fact you had to call a landline and we could listen to each others calls without anyone knowing lol. I was outside as long as I was allowed. Even in the cold of winter I loved being out and playing in the snow.
What kind of good memories do you have as a kid?
Fabulous….it’s obvious we were brought up in different countries. The only thing I recognise is Wonderwoman, and like you I was a huge fan. That and the A-team 😉
I was a ballet and gymnastics girl and the entire school holidays were spent outside on the bike, skates or just running around. So many knocks and bruises but so much fun!!
I liked the A-Team as well. It seems like kids don’t enjoy the outside as much anymore, it’s a shame when I would kill to be out there more.
I know. I have two nieces who are just content to sit and play on their computers all day. I wouldn’t mind so much if they were reading or something. So frustrating.
