Sometime, about a year ago, I suddenly started hating the tube. 2 minutes at a signal and I am freaking out.

To take my mind off things I begun writing lists, each inspired by my journey on the underground.

Biggest childhood disappointments:

  • Failing to invent anything.
  • Realising I'd never have blue eyes.
  • Never owning hungry hippos
  • Never owning a mr frosty
  • Never owning a bluebird kitchen.
  • Not snogging Jason donovan.
  • Not marrying Robbie Williams.
  • Realising that I couldn't sing.
  • Not visiting the cadbury factory.
  • Being incapable of doing a  handstand or cartwheel.
  • Losing my spending money on a school trip. A teacher bought me a rubber out of sympathy, I wanted one of those money pots on string.
  • Missing meeting princess Diana because I had flu.
  • Never having to wear a brace.
  • Breaking my fingers during a game of mercy but still not getting a plaster cast.
  • Never having LA Gears, jelly shoes or a shell suit.  My best mate had all 3. Jealous.
  • No soda stream. 
  • Realising Nutella doesn't taste as good at home as it does on holiday.
  • Having feet too wide for Magic Step shoes
  • Realising that Kylie and Jason weren't actually in love with eachother.
  • Discovering mermaids don't exist even though I'm sure I saw one off the coast of devon.

    I have never recovered from the disappointment of not owning a pair of Magic Step shoes.

  3. Take comfort from the fact that one of my mates (you know who you are cliffers) was made to get her magic steps from a discount store. Only to discover that they were cheap because they didn't have the all important key in the sole. Devo.

  4. No Mr Frosty - I still want one!
