Which decade were you born in?

My earliest memory is being 2 years old and playing with dogs, Alsatians, that I think belonged to a neighbour in the first home I ever lived in.

Playing in a Wendy House at preschool aged 4 . I LOVED preschool.
At 5 – my dolly called Victoria

I was born towards the end of the 1970s
My earliest memory is standing by the orange toilet that was in our flat above the pub where my dad was the landlord. I don’t remember anything other than the fact the toilet was orange. I must have been two as we moved just before I turned three.

1980s. (The best decade, of course!)
Watching a spider crawl across the wall and willing it not to come anywhere near me. I would have been about 2 or 3, proving that my spider phobia goes back a long way.
At age 5 I loved my garden swing. Seriously, I could play on that swing for hours singing songs to myself and daydreaming about all the places in the world I could be swinging away in.

I think my earliest memory is my aunt and uncle’s wedding. I was five, and wore a peach dress with puffy sleeves and loose ribbons, borrowed from a friend. My only memory of the day is my gran being helped down some steps to a car; I think I was worried she would fall. I vaguely remember a conga line from the reception too!
We’ve had a bit of a break over Christmas but I’m back with another Remembering Childhood post.This week it’s the turn of Vicki from Mummy to My Cheeky Little Monkey
I was born in the mid eighties – 1985 to be exact!
I can remember looking out of my great aunt’s bedroom window at the crane ‘Big Geordie’ on the opencast mining.

I was born in the 1970’s, just, but it was a great decade to be born in!
My earliest memory that I can date is actually the morning of my fifth birthday. I got a fishing rod and my Dad took me fishing at this beautiful spot. The sunlight dappled over the water and the grass blew lightly in the breeze. It was absolutely perfect and I even caught a fish! It was so amazing and then we went home to my birthday party, but I never went fishing again… Apparently five year olds talk too much for successful fishing trips!
At 5 I loved my playdoh, I would constantly make little cakes and treats and put them in what I pretended was my display window (it was my wardrobe). The hours spent playing with the playdoh was some of the best time I’ve ever spent! At ten my favourite toy was probably my bike. I used to ride around the estate I lived on making a map of the alleyways that connected all the houses. I really loved being on my own!
Yes, I have a cuddly toy Bambi. He was given to my at my First Christmas by my Dad, when I was seven months old and he still has pride of place on my bed. My husband has learnt to love him too! I really wish I’d kept my Dusty Bin from a year or two later because he was wicked!
I loved Bros. I had a giant poster on the wall, which used to freak my Grandparents out when they stayed in my room, as it looked like two men were breaking into my bedroom to kill them. I’m ashamed/pleased to say however that I didn’t really do “pop music”, I was more a listen to classical music and the classics… My parents had me listening to Simon and Garfunkel, Abba, Dean Martin, Dolly Parton and other Country and Western performers. Honestly it’s probably why I can sing almost anything from memory!
I LOVED The Pink Windmill, it was my most favourite show. I also liked cartoons like The Flintstones and Dungeons and Dragons. I remember watching Knightrider and Blind Date reguarly too! My children still think it is amazing that we didn’t have 24 hour children’s TV available to us.
The first film I remember seeing is a rerun of Disney’s Robin Hood. I remember coming out of the cinema and it being dark and thinking I was really grown up. It was probably only about 5 pm however! I wish that Disney would re-release some more old movies at the Cinema, I’d love to see some more on the big screen.
I wanted to be a Teacher. I still do, but I’ve realised that I only like a few children and could never be a full time teacher! I also wanted to be an actor, but I wasn’t good enough.

I was born in the 1970’s, the later part!
My earliest memory is when I was two years old at my birthday party and I ended up in tears. Turned out the next day I had chicken pox!
My parents still have my dolls pushchair and highchair, My girls love playing with them when they visit. It’s really strange to see them playing with my toys.
I loved (and still do) Take That. Robbie was my favourite and I was obsessed. My bedroom was covered in posters and I used to tape every single appearance they made on the TV.
My wonderful dad took me and my friend to their concert, he patiently waited outside for us.
I think it was 101 Dalmatians, the original one at a Saturday club they ran at the weekend. I still love this movie and have it on DVD, Alice loves it too.
I have lots of outfit memories I would rather forget. I had this bright red pixie boots, that I wore with everything. Even if they didn’t match my outfit, I would wear them!
I always wanted to be teacher and I used to play schools all day long. I had my own register and I would sit all my teddies in a circle as my pupils.

The 1980’s (1985 to be precise)! I am now in my 32nd year – scary stuff!
This is a tricky one – a lot of the memories I have I think I have because I have seen photos or home video that have triggered something. I would probably say that my earliest memory is of my auntie and uncle’s wedding. I was 2 (nearly 3), and a (very serious) bridesmaid/flower girl. I have watched the wedding video thousands of times so it may be that that has triggered the memories, but I do feel I remember the day in significant detail (more detail than shown on the video). I forgot to throw my confetti, I didn’t smile, my baby sister had to be taken out of the church, the line-up took FOREVER and I got so fed up of being kissed! It is still my favourite video to this day!
I don’t think I can actually remember. At 7 years old I got a doll (the boy version of “Tiny Tears” that I named Timmy) and that doll was my favourite thing in the world for many years (so much so that I have little recollection of any others). At 5 years old it was probably Cindy (no Barbie’s allowed in our house) or a My Little Pony?
At 10 years old it was still Timmy, but Winnie the Pooh had also joined the gang (see below).
I still have Timmy somewhere and all of his paraphernalia as I want to give him to my daughter in a year or two. She will probably hate him but never mind. I also have a Winnie the Pooh teddy that I have had since I was 9, and my children are starting to love him (I am not sure I approve of this).
A1 (ahem, moving on…)
As a teenager it was Funhouse. All I ever wanted to do was be a contestant. I also liked Get Your Own Back and Finder Keepers, and Round the Twist, and Byker Grove. I think I watched too much TV. When I was slightly younger I liked Bodger and Badger and Art Attack. I can’t remember much TV from before that as my mum was quite strict with screen time. Maybe that’s why I watched so much as a teenager!
The Rescuers Down Under. My sister cried the whole way through. I don’t remember much of it and have never seen it since. I remember it being quite sad!
Yes, many! Shell suits and knickerbockers (not together of course). Hair-wise, I had a pretty standard full on fringe and short bob until secondary school – it was terrifying. I am the one on the right in the picture.
A mum. Literally, nothing else. This is still what I wanted at age 16 so I found choosing my A-levels and onward career rather difficult. I am very lucky that my dream came true (sorry, that’s a bit soppy).
Age 7. We lived in Germany (my dad was in the RAF) and it was the most amazing experience, and one that I still think about a lot. I loved my schools, the area we lived, the places we got to visit. And I had Timmy. And my parents still liked each other at that point (I think). I have a lot of happy memories from that age!
Thanks Samantha for sharing your childhood memories – I loved Round the Twist too, I bet I could still sing the whole theme tune! If you enjoyed this post then do come back next week when another blogger will be remembering their childhood.
