Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Remember as a youngster being allowed to take your own photos, counting down how many were left on the film then having to wait for your camera's film to be processed, opening up the packet, negatives in the back, and the excitement of seeing your photos for the first time and actually being able to...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Everything belongs to it's own time Stanley and that's one of the influences that makes it special. I'm sure each generation has it's own great memories.

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I remember playing Elastics which involved a lot of jumping and singing. (Gosh the energy we had) Also hoola-hoops and Coca-Cola Yoyo's. Skates with metal soles that you adjusted to your foot-size. Playing Jacks on your knuckles. Hopscotch.

I still have a crisp sandwich every so often (has to be chicken crisps). It's a throwback from high school lunches. Back then we always had a cream bun afterwards as well.

French Knitting - is that the same as Thumb Knitting? I remember 4 nails I think on a piece of wood. The wool would go round and round the nails and come out circular.

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I couldn't imagine putting my fruit and veg straight into the supermarket trolley (or even one of the smaller hand-held baskets that they provide.) That's because my buggy on wheels goes into the trolley while I wander around the shop. The wheels have been dragged over car parks, footpath s etc. I e...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Sorry about your Meccano set Stanley... Growing up I often had dreams about getting back to England. I would be on Colne Rd and each dream I would get a little closer to Grandma's place (Back Colne Rd). On the night, Australian time, of the 12 Oct '72 I dreamt that I got all the way to Grandma's sit...

How many of you still have your school reports. I still have my grade 7 report and my high school years report s.
I haven't looked at them for decades and was surprised to read that some teachers thought I was bright, cheery and well-mannered. Haha.

2nd to last post Lucky You Stanley.
I vaguely remember being taken by bus to the Bradford Eye and Ear Hospital with Grandma. I was in the kids ward and had to sleep in a cot. I was 6 !!. Haha. She had bought me a new pair of slippers for the occasion and but she left them on the bus .

Oh god that reminds me of a woman (Asian) who catches my bus sometimes. I always try to get off before her and walk as fast as I can to get away from her because she spits on the ground. She doesn't stop or look around her, she just spits and continues on her way. Gross! So many times I 've felt lik...
