Thing was, strangely I seemed to end up being "het" after the big kids did the "one potato, two potato" or "dic dic tation, corporation" routines, little did I understand that they were rotten cheats huh.gif

But do I hold a grudge.........of course I censored.png well do laugh.gif

Such great fun in the summer evenings for us kids ,
going around the jumps in Partick , and jumping
from one air raid shelter to another the
back court wash houses and dreeping aff the dykes and a game
of rounders plus skipping ropes , etc. etc. yes.gif

Aw, Heather, your post brought back happy memories of playing in the back court or in the streets of Maryhill.

I haven't heard the word "dreeping" for many years. I also loved playing doublers with two tennis balls against the tenement building where we lived.

Thanks for the memory jog.

Isn't it a shame that kids don't play these games anymore. I bought my friends 4 year old granddaughter a skipping rope and a hula hoop which she loves. I'm also trying to teach her some clapping games which she doesn't quite get but loves singing the songs. When she's had enough she goes on YouTube music and tries to teach me some of the dances she learns at her dance class. Not a pretty sight as, among other things, I have 2 left feet but its good fun trying just to see the expressions on her face when I get it wrong ....again. laugh.gif

Across from our house was a two storey solid brick wall that enclosed a piggery ( that's another story). We spent hours plauing "heiders" against, it's wonder we don't have a permanent dent in our forehead from it.

I seem to remember a research project going on sometime during the 80s, recording children's street games. At the time it appeared to be a complete waste of money, not now as it is very unusual to see kids out playing, never mind being involved in old fashioned games. Not even street football as most estates have signs up banning ball games sad.gif

We do have "heiders" though Ron, but over here we call them Councillors laugh.gif

Always amazes me about how little understanding people in Europe and America have of the size of Africa. I am watching Sky News and there is a warning to any British people in The Gambia to get themselves out of the country because of the chance of civil unrest.
They then hand over to their correspondent in Johannesburg for the latest first hand account.
Don't they know The Gambia is closer to London than Johannesburg? wink.gif

Must admit that I thought the "spiraliser" fad would have passed by now but it appears to be getting worse. Yesterday's news had an item on the problems folk were having getting Courgettes (no, really huh.gif ) in the shops, they are having difficulties in getting supplies and the price has doubled in a year. They initially blamed the rise in the popularity of people serving "courgetti", spiralised courgettes rolleyes.gif

Transpires that the real reason is the cold weather in Spain, where our supplies come from, has delayed the crop. As that French wummin said " let them eat turnip" laugh.gif

Ash! Don't you mean "let them eat Tumshie!"? Dave: We have the same problem here in Canada, Brits and Americans think that they can have breakfast in Toronto and have lunch in Vancouver.
