Childhood sport -
Hated it in school. I was the most unsportive child you can imagine. I wasn't obese or so, just not interested in physical activity and had no endurance or strength at all. I was rather weak and pale. At school sports, when teams were chosen to play against each other the sportive team'leaders' would choose me as one of the last of the boys back then cuz no one really wanted me on their team. A hurtful memory actually when I think of it now.

Childhood Hobbies -
Playing Lego or Play-Mobile, loved it. Lots of remaining in my own lively fantasies too. I could play very well (or even best) alone. We were near a forest, so when friends came we often out there to play and sometimes we built wooden huts all day, that was fun too. / I also built spaceships for my playmobil or lego figures out of cardboard boxes (together with my sister) / we also tape recorded a radio show on cassette / As a teen I started music then as a drummer (parents and neighbours were't too pleased...), later played in bands

Childhood treats -
ice cream probably, as a very young child I could not eat large chunks of meat or meat at all - I was afraid to get suffocated by them, very strange memory if I think of it today/ watching Star Trek on TV (called Spaceship Enterprise back then in my country at that time, 70ies) before taking the bath on Saturdays

Childhood favourite activities
- see hobbies

Childhood house duties -
none, except school homework of course, in the first years my mother taught me extra lessons (mostly in writing), so I was very good at school grades and tests in my early years

Childhood pets -
a dog and later a cat, loved them and played a lot with them, also a green budgie who'd sit on my finger and could talk a lot what my mother had taught it, sweet

Childhood favourite school lessons -
English (only after 5th grade), hated Math or Science ... and Sports, esp. all kinds of gymnastics, but despite being bad at it I loved playing ball games then (esp. soccer)

its the little things aint it?, and christmas was magic. i used to get a tangeringe with a quid cellotaped to it in my stocking, from my dad.

yea, Christmas was just the best, we always had my mum's parents stay over for a few nights, so nanna & pop presence always made it so special. hahaha... you did better than us, we always had a tangerine in our 'un-used' dad socks (stockings) but there was never anything cellotaped to them xxx

hi Sinera,

what i find really interesting is you mention 'Play- mobile' , my son had a few of these. A few weeks back during 'paying attention' time i was watching visions behind closed eyelids & one of the visions was of my son's playmobile land-drover with it's missing wheel

At the time i thought 'how odd, what a strange vision to have' .... still strange, but now i have a connection for it ~ Cool !

Thank for sharing guys, i added a few more topics to the above lists

:P x
