Fondest memories of being a kid

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
What do you remember most about being a kid, Im talking 7 to 12 ish?

Like holidays, special friends, what you used to do with your parents, how your parents treat you etc.

I cant remember that much apart from my parents making sure that on a Sunday after dinner we always went for a walk. We would walk miles, go to the beach, go shell collecting etc. They used to take us out for walks because money was tight, but as kids we used to love it.
They also would do things on impulse like one day we set of to go strawberry picking and ended up down South at out Aunties, no clothes and went to stay for the night and came home the next day lol.
We used to have fun, Mam would make chips for us and so we felt like we had gone to the chippy she used to put them in paper for us she had a way of trying to please us.

Ah them where the days :)

    Having nothing to worry about, going to school and coming home and doing whatever homework then going out to "play" :lol:

    Having water fights was also another favourite

    When we all used to play down our street (it was a cul-de-sac) and we'd all play on our bikes and make dens in the fields and woods... and we'd climb trees and play silly games. :)

    I wanna be a kid again :(

    I remember that I used to sneak out the living room window to get ice from the icecream van - it was soooo yummy - espacially the mixed one - half lemon and half normal icecream - Yum, Yum!!

    I got caught in the end!!

    By the way I always wondered ... what do Ice cream men do in winter??

    Oh yeah .. good thinking Batman ... It's a shame cos the hotdogs were get here are crap in a bun (Well I bet they are - I've never eaten one from a street seller - saw a TV investigation on them - they drop them on the floor - pick them up and brush them off - reheat yesterday's hotdog's, etc.)

    When I was in Canada though - I couldn't get enough of theirs - 100% beef - 10 to 20 topping to choose from and cheap - like $1.50 to $2 max!!

    your right diamond they are serious crap! i have a mate in manchester who makes a very good living from ices and hot dogs. has a number of vehicles. can you believe they actualy have ice cream and hot dog wars in all major cities in the land. turf wars. it can get quite violent becuase it's big easy money.

    i remember going out to play hide n seek with my older brother and sister & their friends. They used to make me a blacksheep coz i was too young to play properly. Now that i come to think of it, what was the point in playing??
    Anyways i also remember riding my bike down the hill at the top of my street with my friend on the back. We were goin down the middle of the road and i asked her to shout if there were any cars coming. She then shouts "There's a big white van coming!!" So I swerved the bike onto the pavement but scraped my hand off a wall while doin it, then crashed the bike. I still have the scar on my hand where i scraped it but at the time i didn't even feel it.

    Ah to be a little kid again.....
