TV Shows: I loved TV!! My Dad gave us a rule - Neighbours or Home and Away - we choose Home and Away. Some of my other favourites were Full House, Beverly Hills 90210, Dawson's Creek, Punky Brewster and Alf (who didn't love that little fury alien)
Books: The Baby Sitters Club series by Ann M. Martin. How I loved the Baby sitters club - I had all the books including the super specials (I still have them now). And when the movie came out (not that long ago) I just had to drag myself along to see it!
I also loved The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton and really enjoyed reliving this one with my son recently.
Food: Lasagna and golden syrup dumplings! Actually I still love these. Mum made me lasagna for dinner the night before my wedding - and it's a regular in our household now as it's one of my son's favourites. And Mum made us golden syrup dumplings for dessert for Easter Sunday!
Movies: Pippy Longstockings and Fatty Fin
Clothes: My RaRa skirt - I felt so cool in my RaRa skirt. My sister and I each had a similar one but of a different colour
Toys: Barbie! I loved playing with Barbies (even when I was older than a girl should be to play with Barbies). There was just something about that imaginary world.
Dolls: I dreamt of getting a Cabbage Patch kid - the year I got one for Christmas I was the happiest girl alive. Her name was Sylvia Esmeralda. I still have her now although Savannah isn't that fond of her (she prefers her 'modern' dolls).
Cartoons: I loved the Smurfs (who didn't??) but also the Snorks. The Snorks were like the Smurfs but underwater! I remember spending hours trying to draw them (I wasn't a very good artist).
Sport: I grew up in the country where sport was a big thing - it's what you did. I wasn't very good but I had a go.I did netball, tennis, golf and swimming.
Songs: I remember singing I want that Man by Deborah Harry. Part of the lyrics go: here comes the 21st century, it's going to be much better for a girl like me.....I remember asking my parents if I would still be alive in the 21st century - I hope so was my Dads answer. It seemed like so long in the future to me!
But my all time favourite was Toni Pearen -In Your Room. See you tube clip below! It was the first CD I bought and I spent many a hours in my room listening, singing and dancing to Toni!
What are some of your childhood favourites?
