Being A Little Kid..............

So I was reading a post which the lovely Hayley had done about Being a little kid and basically reminiscing about all the good things we enjoyed as kids and I loved reading her post so I thought I would do one myself as was such a good read you can read Hayleys Post here


OMG I was obsessed with Sooty as a kid was without doubt my favourite show, every day it was on I used to get sooo excited and I had ( and still have) the Puppets to go with it I remember being so sad when mum had washed Sweep and his squeak went after being washed haha and even now I can remember the theme tune ' Hey ho it Sooty and Co every1 say hello... HELLO' haha and don't worry the puppets are in the loft at my mums I don't still play with them now ha


Everyone I know had these trolls such a huge craze for them wasn't there? Used to get so excited when I got a new one, and U could get the bigger ones which were like a ballerina and bride etc? Loved them

One of my favourite cartoons was gummybears loved this show

Oh Penny
As a kid I was obsessed with Oh Penny I remember one christmas mum and dad Getting me this house and the tree house and then form then on I was hooked loved it :)

Penny Sweets
Brings back memories of getting ya pocket money and popping to the shop to buy the little 1p and 2p sweets ah those were the days

BabySitters Club

Dont know if just me but these Books were my fave when I was kid I had every single book and loved them all.Also loved the point horror books as well, did u read any of them?

Sister Sister

My fave show I loved this programme so much and even now wish they would show re runs loved poor old roger 'go home roger' haha

Going the beach and spending so much time building a sandcastle with a little moat then praying it didnt get washed away when the tide came in,lol and me and my cousins used to make Sand cakes as well and try to get our parents to eat them haha :/
