Tv: captain planet and the planeteers
buckie o hare
rude dog and the dweebs
Any one remember jamie and the magic torch?
Me and LMSP used to push our beds together and run round and round on top of them, singing the theme to it!

Also I remember flicking alphabet spaghetti around the room,
Our toy poodle Pepe
Stealing Mars bars off my brother's dad's fruit n veg van when he'd pick us up from school,
Racing the dining room chairs,
Pulling down the curtains every morning to play princesses,
dressing my brother up like a girl
Playing with the horses with keith n jonny, keith attempting bareback riding and my bro slappin the horse (wee pony actually) and it galloped away with keith holding on for dear life
looking for tadpoles and johnny bulgies (bulgies pronounced with a hard G not a J - which were cat fish)
crawling under the river bridge and getting scabs on our backs as it was so low and we had to bend
Kicking that roadkill hedgehog and then its jaw fell off
Marie saving a shrew from a cat then bringing it inside only to terrorise it and it had a heart attack frown
tying rosehips on either end of a piece of string and throwing it over the telephone cables outside our house - and making itching powder outta them too
tying worms around a needleless brown christmas tree that was dumped in the garden
Burning plastic bags
making mud/ash pies
decorating our den (under the rose bush)
going down to play by the river at the swing bridge (not an actual bridge - a piece of rope tied to a tree so u could swing across the river)
Playing in the foundations of the new houses when they were being built

general exploring and trespassing forbidden areas

*not being able to wait to get out of bed in the morning,the exact opposite of now!

*the goonies

*getting fish and chips with a can of vimto from pearls chippy van every tuesday when she came by our village.

*fighting with my brother,probably over the remote or something stupid,but at the time felt like the worse thing in the world.

*top cat

*hubba bubba

I used to have a cat named Mr Pooh after Winnie the Pooh and I used to dress him up in my dolls clothes and put him in a pram and then take him for walks down the garden, "the poor thing". The worse thing i used to do was put the hose on the slide and then push him down. I was only bout 4. Poor cat must of hated me ooooops

My Little Pony - I wasn't allowed one frown
Cabage Patch kids, and Garbage Pail kids (much more fun!)
I loved Wilo the Wisp - what a fab creation, with Edna the evil Television and the little fat fairy!
My little yellow plastic tractor that got stolen when I left it outside in the garden.
I didn't listen to much music, but do remember my folks playing Abba
The audio tape of Black Beauty - my parents had it on loop on the cassette player.
Jim'll Fix it
Crackerjack (It's Friday, It;s Five to five, it's......) I hated it
Play School with Floella Benjemin (Let's look through the round window!)
Wurzel Gummage
Look and Read - with Wordy and Dark Towers
I remember reading Twinkle magazine, and the Narnia Chronicles.
Playing on pogo sticks, and later a wierd ball in the middle of a plastic disk that you stood on and bounced - and got bad blisters on the insides of your feet.
Learning to ride a bike without my Dad holding the back of it.
Falling off.
Eating Jawbreakers and Wham Bars.


This may bring back some memories
