Original Post

Awww. Good thread Pirate 

 

I just miss the innocence of me at times. That's not to say I'm a handful now but....

I don't miss some of the people that patronised me and do wish I had had more friends. Is this something to do with me having two older brothers? I dunno?  Sorry, that was a bit profound, I know 

Not appreciating how I looked or was perceived by others

 

Playing football in the street - it was all that mattered

 

Being unaware of politics, the opposite sex, money, bills, employment . . .

 

Having endless energy and endless enthusiasm about the simplest things

Believing in Santa

Being excited about getting older

Playing in the street til it got dark

And ... acceptance - things were the way they were ... then we went out and played in the street (til it was dark)

All the above Renton , minus the football 

Danger - go kart made out of a pram, conkers, throwing wheelies on a bike, rolling in the snow, drinking from a stream, running across a road, eating loads of sugary things, pulling out your milk teeth with string, falling off a bike and getting straight back on, scabbed knees and no plasters . . . .

 

 . . . and that time seemed irrelevant, lazy wasted days and doing absolutely nothing
