It’s that time of week when another blogger is going to be sharing their childhood memories. This week’s Remembering Childhood comes from Victoria at Lylia Rose.
Which decade were you born in?
The 80s! I was born in 1985
What is your earliest memory? How old were you?
I vaguely remember taking my colouring in up to my teacher in reception class and being told to sit back down and colour in some more. I would have been four years old.
What was your favourite toy at 5 years old? At 10?
At 5 probably a My Little Pony house with some ponies. At 10 my rollerblades were my favourite!
Do you still have any toys from your childhood?
No I haven’t kept anything.
Who was your favourite pop group/artist as a teenager?
I loved The Spice Girls, East 17 and All Saints!
What was your favourite TV show(s)?
Clarissa Explains It All, Kenan and Kel, Sabrina The Teenage Witch and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
What was the first film you remember seeing at the cinema?
Jurassic Park and it terrified me – I had nightmares for ages.
Do you have any dodgy haircut/ outfit memories that you’d rather forget?
My mum used to cut our hair and it was always wonky. When we first went to the hairdressers they remarked ‘who on Earth has been cutting your hair?!’
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I changed my mind a lot – anything from a radio DJ to a reception school teacher.
If you could go back to being a child again what age would you choose and why?
Around 10 years old when I was climbing trees, out on my bicycle and rollerblades. I had no worries and was a bit of a tomboy! I loved to play with my male best friend and didn’t worry about looks or school work. I was still a child and it was fun!
Thanks for sharing your memories Victoria – I think 10 is a pretty good age to be, you’re not a baby any more but it’s before all the worries of high school start.
