I wanted Clark's magic Princess shoes for my communion. My mother had 7 kids though, so I didn't get them

Poochie





Never got one. But the spoiled bitch over the road did and used to leave it sitting on her windowsill so I could see it every time I went past. Bet she didn't even play with it.

I’m not over it. I may get one yet.
Did you read the article about Rod Stewart’s train set? I was green with envy.

Me too, my older cousin had a great one all laid out on a sheet of plywood with stations, signals, animals etc. I used to play with it when we went to visit and I was promised I could have it when he grew out of it. That was sixty years ago and I'm still waiting. Maybe next year.

I was more obsessed with Man United winning the Champions League than Alex Ferguson was. I remember crying my eyes out when they were knocked out of the European Cup semi-finals to Dortmund in May 1997, I also remember crying a fair bit when Belgium beat Ireland in the 1998 World Cup play-offs in November 1997.

I really wanted to find a secret tunnel growing up.

Too much time spent reading the Famous Five and the likes. With their fancy adventures the whole time. Never did find one.

Same here, but I had to wait until September 2017.

Some things are worth waiting for, I guess.

A brother or sister!

Only child.. Pretty boring. Although spoiled of course.. But still, would have and still would love a brother or sister

Other than that, a puppy!

My big brother was into model railways.. The new house had a hall with doors to main room and kitchen . so he laid tracks in a circle.. took over the house. Got away with it too, bless him,!
