Nobody has posted a challenge this week, so I thought I would take a turn…
I went to a pyjama party on Friday, but this one was a little bit different. Besides our PJs we were encouraged to take our kids (if we had any) and our teddies.
After we had eaten healthily, we all sprawled on soft furniture and cushions in front of the biggest tv screen I’ve ever seen and stuffed our faces with curly wurlies, iced gems, jelly babies, twiglets, dolly mixtures and liquorice allsorts while we watched old cartoons from our childhoods. It was wonderful to see Pogles Wood, Mr Benn, Noggin The Nog, Trumpton, The Wombles, Dangermouse, Bagpuss and Hector’s House again. And the bestest of them all – The Clangers. The little ones were fascinated by these cartoons from another time and even though it was way past their bedtimes, none fell asleep.
The cartoons reminded me of some of my favourite songs from my childhood. The challenge this week is to find a clip for one of your favourite childhood songs and to maybe tell how old you were and if you can remember, any memories you have of that time.
UPDATE: Is anyone in the mood to set next week’s challenge? The first person to volunteer gets a tube of ‘Spill points and a gold star.
