Having laughed at this post on Traci's site I simply had to join in the fun and post the things I'm gonna do not caring how old I am.

But first I wanted to share this .....

#1 Have Bear Necessity (a teddy Mr T bought for me to cuddle whilst he was in hospital) by my bedside.

#2 Sulk every time Mr T 'buys' the railway stations when we play Monopoly - its a tradition started in my childhood that just as my (naughty) little sister gets to be the dog I get to buy Fenchurch Street, Marylebone, Liverpool Street and King's Cross stations.

#3 Head straight for Hook-A-Duck at the fairground.

#4 Nibble the chocolate off a Fry's Turkish Delight before starting on the rose-flavoured filling.

#5 Delight in reading books with children's covers despite the fact that they are also available with 'adult' covers. 

#6 Shout 'Weee' every time a rugby player slides across the ground scoring a try.

#7 Slam doors in temper.

#8 Love balloons.

#9 Consider a party a total success only if Pass-The-Parcel is played.

#10 Feel the desire to roll around on bubblewrap.

What about you, what are you gonna do no matter your age?

I love that you joined in! I, too, have a cuddly though mine doesn't have such a clever name and I have been known to slam a door in my day.

Naida said...

I'm with you on slamming doors...lol. Fun list!
As for myself...dance like nobody's watching and sing along to Disney songs would be on my list.

I don't know what a Fry's Turkish Delight is, but it sounds delicious!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

ooh bubblewrap! Love that stuff. i'm always going to love playing "kid" games at parties instead of sitting around and drinking. :)

Oh what a fun post this is!

I'm never ashamed to admit the childish things I still do. What's that expression? ...something like "growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional"

Hi Tracy,

What a great fun post and thanks for the clip of 'The Bluebells', that was a real 'blast from the past'!

We heard an article on a radio programme earlier today, about a couple who had been together for 81 years and married for 74 of those. The lady's recipe for success, was to argue plenty, but to always apologise afterwards ... That sounds like us already, so I really just need to keep doing more of the same, as I age!

I shall keep on going to Disney World, Florida, as often as I can afford to, as that is one place where you never have to grow up, or grow old!

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
― C.S. Lewis

“A book is a wonderful present. Though it may grow worn, it will never grow old.”
― Jane Yolen, Girl in a Cage

I hope that your weekend was good, my own was hectic but very nice.

Love this post! I still have a few stuffed animals around, including a cute elephant that DH bought me when we were dating. Never getting rid of them! I also sulk when playing Monopoly, but only when I'm losing. lol

Thank you for all your comments, its great to know that I won't be growing old disgracefully by myself.

Made since 1941 Fry's Turkish Delight is a small slab of rose flavoured Turkish Delight covered in chocolate.

Great post!

Watch old Godzilla movies and get excited when the monsters fight!

What a great list, Tracy!

I like to eat all the chocolate off of HoHo's, and then unroll the cake part as I eat it.

Like Alexia, I still have quite a few stuffed animals, many of which I got after I became an adult.

Order milkshakes, read children's stories (and laugh!), and wave at passing buses and trains with my baby niece. Love that video!

Barbara Fisher said...

I love how you are going to shout ‘Weee’ at rugby players. I’m always tempted to do that while driving down steep hills the problem is I also want to raise my hands in the air at the same time!
I loved this post :)

Lovely post! I love bubble wrap, a nearby national trust place was decorated different last Christmas and one room had bubble wrap all over the floor, it was brilliant fun jumping on it!
