Boy, that’s one reflective trailer – it can only be yours! Much as I love the outdoors, I was never sold on camping and actually refused to do it as a kid, but trailers and camper vans make the experience sound rather more fun.
Ha, he’s sooo cool! The emu has landed – or maybe he’s in the process of landing 😉 I’m also as bad indoors as I am out, especially if there’s fancy floral wallpaper; I’m constantly looking for shapes and faces!
Lovely! What a great background too. I did laugh at the ‘giant insect’ incident, because I’m sure I’d have responded in the same way! I certainly am missing the rainy days at the moment – it’s been several weeks since we’ve had even a sprinkle of the stuff. Hopefully we’ll get a nice thunderstorm soon!
I don’t think I ever played jacks. They’re shiny, so at least they have that in their favour! Game nights are fun, though I often had to force people to play back in the day. I used to love Battleships! Upwords was fun; it was like Scrabble, but easier, as you could stack tiles on top to make new words.
Pac Man was legendary, but nothing compared…[Read more]
It’s pretty darn hot here, so I could certainly go for this!
“I’m not sure if anything I’ve ever created would be considered a masterpiece” What about Cliché Day? There’s surely no other word 😉 Three years is beyond remarkable; I struggled with twenty-six days, so I doff my cap to you!
The rocket lolly looks great! It’s been years since I’ve had one! We’re experiencing something of a heatwave right now, so we could do with all the lollies we can get. I can’t say I used to run for the ice cream van 😉 but remember having fun with the lolly sticks, not least because they used to have jokes on them! Double the fun after finishing…[Read more]
Aww, cute duck, even if he looks a little fed up – maybe he feels the same way about pool parties, which is unfortunate for him! I only ever went to a pool once or twice recreationally as a kid; they most certainly did not go swimmingly. At school, everyone seemed to love and look forward to lessons, but I would dread it for all the reasons you…[Read more]
If I were to tell you my high school was a ‘specialist sports college’, I’d sound overbearingly sporty. I’ll omit the facts that I hated PE, was in the lowest ability set and left proud of my E grade, bringing the snooty sports rep down 😉
Pretty, delicate bird. You know, I don’t think I, nor my friends, ever climbed trees. Possibly we were discouraged from trying. Perhaps we should make a pact to try that too, if we’re fortunate enough to meet 😉 though given my performance on climbing walls, it could be interesting!
They were fun! When I was at college, there was a park directly opposite the site. We couldn’t resist a go on the swings and springy things now and again. In fact I think the college once sent out an e-mail telling everyone to stay off because students were using them more than the children 😛
I was plucked out of classes to do my own thing…[Read more]
Sensational! I love the light in the sky. It’s one of those things I always wanted to do as a kid, but now probably wouldn’t. Some of the baskets just don’t look very big! But it’s always a treat to see them flying in the sky.
