1. When I was really little, I used to tell my parents that I wanted to be a ‘fruit shop lady’. This really amuses me now :)
2. Then as I started to grow up, I became obsessed with Hollywood and was convinced that I wanted to be an actress. Drama classes, performances, concerts were my life!
3. All through highschool I wanted to be a journalist. This was my plan until the day I found out I’d got into a Communications degree. Then for some reason, I freaked out, changed my mind and enrolled in a Business degree instead.
Do you think anyone decides what they want to do and then actually becomes that thing?
One of my favourite things to do when I was little was to go on adventure hunts in the backyard. Mum would give my sister and I each an ice-cream container and a list and send us to find certain things. Feathers, a fern leaf, a flower, a pebble, etc. She was such a good Mum.
I also loved to play on my go go ball. Try as I might, I have not been able to find a picture of one on the whole of the internets. Do you remember what they looked like? It was kind of like Saturn and you could bounce around on the plastic frame around the ball. Mine was red and blue and Leigh’s was pink and yellow. Fun times.
I also loved:
Viewmasters! Were they not awesome? And is there anything like them today? No.
Hyper colour tshirts! I wish these would make a comeback!
Mr Galliano’s Circus. My favourite Enid Blyton book.
Making letters out of dough then baking them.
Making jewellery out of flowers. Also looking for 4 leaf clovers.
Yearly ski trips.
Doing hand stands in the pool and making Mum judge them out of 10.
Warheads! I loved tricking my grandparents with these.
My little ponies. The original, vintage versions not the newfangled ones out today!
How bout you?
