Thought of The Day:Childhood Nostalgia at the Fairground

The Fair has come to my Hometown again. And with it comes chocolate covered fruit, candy floss and Merry-Go-Rounds. I don’t do well in loud, busy places but am easily tempted by the promise of sugary goods and bottled evening beer, while sitting on a blanket in the park. It’s a time for socializing, time for families with children and most of all time for me to find the best Fairground attraction ever.

The Sea-Hamsters Ball.

It’s not actually called that.But it is a blown up round contraption floating on water, with kids running inside like hamsters.

I can’t think of a better way to tire your children out for a long, deep sleep than letting them work hard at keeping their balance in a water filled paddling pool.

I can’t help feeling a little jealous. Jealous that this didn’t exist when I was that age. And wondering whether or not I can have a go.

“I’m too big. What a pity…”

watching it I remember how it felt as a child believing nothing was impossible. Believing that if I flap my arms hard enough I can fly.

Waking up having dreamed of flying. Wanting to be able to breath underwater or be able to become invisible like Harry Potter under a cloak.

  • What a magical time childhood can be…
