Don't remember how old I was but obviously not that old since my mom said I used to do this when I was really young. I used to grab one of my books and crawl behind a sofa we had. It had a little space because it was a circular back chair in a corner. So I remember crawling into that little space and reading.

for me it would be when i was around a year and a half, i decided to paint a black leather couch with white sudo cream and tried to blame it on my little sister, she was about 6 months old and i decided if she got into trouble they would kick her out and i wouldn't have to listen to her cry all the time ....... didn't work though, she still moans a lot....

That was my favorite game. I loved to fit into tiny spaces and pretend that I was really poor/homeless and make myself porridge. I really wanted to be stranded on a tropical island like Robinsin Cruso. So that I could build something in the trees and read. PUh hahah. I was a big dork and still am.

I think that's so adorable lovelee! I used to want to go on adventures like one of the Smurfs. I don't remember who he was exactly just that he used to carry a little red cloth (filled with his belongings) on a stick. I actually found one of my mom's red scarves and filled it with some of my favorite stuff and prepared to go on a journey when I was intercepted by my mom... She didn't let me go! :( But that was when I was a bit older than my reading in cramped spaces stage.

I had to look him up, because I use to love the smurfs myself. until their voice changed that one year... either that or it was my tv ...who knows. But his name is Tracker smurf.

Good stuff. youre memories are making me remember my memories.

thanks lisa

Tracker Smurf! Brilliant... I was going to call him Vagabond Smurf or Backpacker Smurf! Those are good memories Did anyone else walk around the house singing songs? I used to sing a lot when I was younger I'm told.

Kids are great!

Its really cool how your imagination could keep you occupied for ages, like making dens etc, and its a shame we lose that when we grow up. Although it would be a bit weird if I still ran around pretending to be a fairy princess, or that my bike was a horse...(I'm sure it wasn't just me!)

Another of my early memories is the inside of my nursery school. I remember when my big brother was having his tonsils out, my mum stayed with him in hospital and my dad took me to nursery really late with weetabix all down my front! Men eh?

I also remember how shouting through the fence at next doors dog, a Boxer.

Sometimes I go up in my parents loft and they still have a few really old toys, that I'd forgotten all about, and its the weirdest feeling, both happy and sad.

Toys rock! I had some He-Man toys but i gave them all away when i was seven in a charitable frenzy because Trocaire had an appeal to raise money for the Ethiopian famine in 1986 and i gave them to a bring-and-buy sale at school. I remember being gutted for weeks afterwards cos i didnt have them anymore, it really didnt feel worth it at the time.
