Learn to swim?
Get the reading bug?
Pull the legs off Daddy Longlegs?
Play doctors and nurses?
Fall out of a tree?

Must be loads of others but I'm struggling.

before 10?

Perhaps it should be 33 things to do before 33 - some look really good fun.

How about:

Have a water fight
Make a dam in a stream
Catch stickbacks and newts
Slide down a snowy slope on a tray
Make a daisy chain?

Anyway, why should kids have all the fun? I fancy doing some of those things now! :-)

Oh my gosh! I've done most of those things by the time I was 10. Is this an official list? ;-) How about these? Play hide and go seek after dark. Eat grapes fresh off the vine. Convince a stray puppy to follow you home and convince your parents to let you keep him. :-)

This brings back lovely memories for me. The funny thing about most of these is how easily adults could - and should - do them, too.

I hope we never grow too old to do stuff like this.

Hope all's well on your side of the pond. You've been quiet of late.
