  1. Thank you for your lovely comment. I think all we can do is make the best of each day, whatever our age. I wasted too many days not realising that. Thank you again 😊

  2. I remember when I was a child. There were days (Particularly school days) that seemed endless and there were entire months (Vacation times) that seemed to flash past faster than lightning. Our sense of time was attuned to our sense of pleasure back in those days. Now that I am elderly and approaching the end of my life, the lightning fast days are back again. So I make sure to make the most of each day that I am blessed to live.

  3. Those are memories I have too. It was a different world then, parents wanted us out of the house and were happy for us to look after ourselves.

  4. As a group of kids in Coventry in the early 1960s our parents would say ‘Go play on the grass’. Meant a game of football on a large patch of grass between the three story flats. Jumpers as goalposts definitely. Kerbs on roadsides were for throwing the ball back and forth hoping to catch the edge and get it bounce back. A point won to get to twenty and win. Cheers. All the best.
