Exciting Childhood MomentsSaturday, July 16, 2016
These were the days when picking a packet of crisps was a skill. Trying to feel through the bags at the corner shop without the cashier seeing you. I was good at this I won countless packets of free crisps and even won a fiver in one.
The ‘Mr Postman’ song on SMTV Live
Yes I danced along with Cat Deeley, Ant and Dec every Saturday morning. I bloody loved that show and Still love me a bit of Dec to this day.
The Spice Girl Photo Album
I think this was the only collection I ever completed. I can remember going to school with a massive pile of the same picture of Victoria on the toilet and trying to swap with my friends. I was so happy to get the black and white picture of them all together. I must have bought 20 packs to get my final 1 but I did it and I was so smug when I did. Haven’t the foggiest what happened to them, all that money wasted.
Yes I was the girl who knew all the dance moves at the party. I would confidently dance through the entire song of Steps, Atomic Kitten even Hear’Say (What you forgot about Hear’Say). What… its not cool to sit at home taping every CD:UK and rewinding until I knew every dance move off by heart???
I don’t think it mattered what stickers or cards you were collecting the excitement when you opened the packed and you saw that holographic paper. I collected everything from football stickers to Disney ones.
Swimming Pool Inflatable Parties
Before Health and Safety went silly birthday parties either consisted of a bouncy castle in your back garden or a swimming party and the best Pool parties were the ones with the big inflatables. These went the full length of the pool, with bits to climb on and slides.
What are things that made you happy as a child??
