    I'd probably spend more time with other people I was very active and spent loads of time out of the house, but always kept to myself. I'd love to have played a team sport or something on top of my dancing and taekwondo. I'd also have taken my flute lessons a bit more seriously because I'd love to be able to play more than the basics over 10 years later . I think right about now though I'd be planning out my letter to Santa, sat in front of an Argos catalogue on the floor :laugh:

    If I were 8 again I would line up all the Magic Faraway Tree books and read them back to back, transported again into the wonderful world of
    Land of Birthday Parties and toffee that grew bigger in your mouth and a slippery slide that went from the land at the top of the tree all the day down to the ground.
    I LOVED those books - I read them all multiple times!

    I'd ask for 'Lelli Kelli' shoes for my birthday
    Haha I remember those really annoying adverts for them on TV - never wanted any, they looked really impractical (I think I was a weird eight-year-old). Funnily enough, I passed a shop the other day that was still selling them and asked my mum if she remembered them. She just rolled her eyes and said "...yes"!

    If I was eight again, I'd probably make the most out of the freedoms that I had. Compared to now, I had no worries about the future and was able to live for the present much more. On the whole, my childhood (which I consider to have ended when I was about 11/12) was really quite happy and I do wish I could go back to that stage, knowing what I know now.

    It just frightens me that soon I'll be eighteen and this time next year I'll be studying at university!
