What did you get up to when you were a kid?
I had three brothers when I was a boy, so there was never a shortage of people to have a kick-about with a football, or play cricket or rugby. I can still see that heavy leather football crashing through my Mum’s kitchen window. Ouch!
When we weren’t doing stuff like that, and getting into trouble, we used to play all sorts of other games, like;
Conkers (in the autumn)
Penny up against the wall – (nearest the wall picked up all the pennies)
Top trumps – (card game)
We even invented a sort of squash with a tennis ball, against the four-storey gable end of the old school block.
What did you get up to? Let us know here; we’d love to find out! Leave us some contact details, and we may come and talk to you about it.
