I loved the beach first, the bush second.
I wanted to be Prime Minister or an interior decorator.
I lived on a 400 acre pineapple farm.
I wanted a baby sister. And got one.
I never once worried about my parents splitting up.
I dreamt about Californian beaches and being buried alive.
I told stories. Sometimes I wrote them down.
I collected dolls. My sister ruined most of them.
I wore shorts and t-shirts most days.
I loved school, until I was in year 4.
I would devour books.

Take a look, have you changed much?

      Excellent, well my plot to grab her and run across the border is taking shape. 😉

  • The funny thing is I never feel any different to that boy I used to be.
    I hated school always,
    I wanted my parents to split up (horrible father)
    I loved building things and pulling things apart.
    I wanted to be an air force pilot. haha I am just glad that I am still the person my mum raised me to be. Polite, compassionate and Kind

  • I haven’t changed much, I still faff around doing not much in between sitting reading. Going to work doesn’t count because it’s a necessity not a choice.
