    Building dens in the garden/field and hiding out.

    Riding my bike as fast as I can and skidding or jumping off it.

    The overwhelming anticipation of Christmas.

    Really, really enjoying films and video games.





    If the first two were socially acceptable for a 27 year old I think I'd still do them.

    When my primary school got all festive at Christmas and singing carols :)

    Exploring the local neighbourhood "playing outside" without people thinking you're a weirdo. Just try it as an adult; wondering about with no sense of direction. This was in Lewisham, so was also pretty scary at the same time.

    Coming home from school to watch cartoons.

    Not particularly something I miss... but jumping from ludicrous heights without any fear. If I tried dropping from much over 6 foot these days I'd probably break a hip. :D

    Exploring in the local woods for hours on end. I'd do it now but I tend to scare the shit out of anyone who sees me.

    No debts larger than 10p and a conker.

    Sneaking into the grounds of the local girls boarding school.

    Having fun without the need of alcohol.

    I just miss the boundless energy. Id run around all day at school, then get home and run around some more games of it, football, skateboarding, biking whatever, you couldnt sit me down.

    These days Im knackered before I even leave the house in the morning.

    I miss being able to punch someone in the stomach (without getting nicked) just because you don't like them...

    Thinking conkers are an epic gladiatorial battle of wits and skill.

    Lets just say neither me nor my mates complained about carrots for dinner. Though at that age we were more interesed in causing mischief than perving through the windows. We left that to the dodgy looking blokes [Psychotext?] in raincoats hiding in the trees.

    Not having a single responsibility or obligation to uphold.

    Pits with thousands of plastic balls you could swim in and have wars with.

    Being able to get away with virtually anything with almost no punishment.

    Birthdays and Christmas Day where it was almost impossible to sleep the night before and waking up at the crack of dawn to run downstairs like a madman and rip apart wrapping paper like a rabid dog.

    Feeling like a ninja because I had sneaked a biscuit out of the biscuit barrel.
