When people say that their school days or their childhood were the best days of their lives I think that is a little sad, sure when you are having to work for a living and worrying over paying the bills and making ends meet you have a lot of worries and those idyllic summer days spent doing fun stuff as a child can be seen through rose tinted glasses but I like to think that I have many more great times ahead of me.
My main memory as a child i of spending summers with my grand parents as both my parents worked long hours so we would spend the time with them as children, they had a reasonably large house in the Warwickshire countryside, big enough that we all had our own room and I used to love exploring the dusty old attic which was crammed full of things from their past.
In the local area there were plenty of places to explore and I used to love playing in the woods with my brother and cousins who were a similar age, we would build dens and make plans to sleep in them at night, plans we never dared follow through, there was lots of wildlife to see and it was a lovely unspolit area, today it depresses me that parts of the wood have been lost to a golf course whose manicured fairways are just as environmentally damaging and ugly as building a housing estate in my opinion, an environmental tax on golfers would be a big vote winner for me.
Definately a happy childhood but just as important a happy adult life with plenty of good memories to be created.
