Childhood shenanigans

Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

Riding our bikes as fast as you can 

10 extra points for knocking down your nan 

Climbing a tree till the clouds you could touch. .....then shouting on your pal......can't get down? Not so much 

Crawling through grass with a stick as a gun 

Till you crawl through something you shouldn't. . . . . . .  Never much fun

Climbing the garages to feel like a queen 

Getting shouted at by your ma cause the arse of your trousers is never clean 

Swinging and swinging and swinging some more 

Then ripping your clothes as you leap for the shore ( the grass ) 

Water fights from the tap that doubled as our drinking hole 

Probably not the freshest but looking after our health was never the goal

Kiss cuddle torture in the woods by the house 

You prayed if you picked kiss the boy never ran like a big Girls blouse 

Hanging in groups of all different ages 

Experiencing life and all of its stages 

Laughing and swearing and fighting with boys 

Getting told to act like a girl with elogance. . . . . poise 

Ready and rough and funny and loud 

Me and my pals the best EK crowd

          All those things we used to do as kids brought us fun and experience. You took me back to my childhood and that was a very long time ago.
          God nostalgic write.
