    Leaf popping! Yes!!
    Got both my little ones at it. Loved their little amazed faces when I first showed them. They have it down now.
    Stone skipping.
    Spend as much time in the woods as possible, whether on bike or not.
    Outdoor raves, albeit legal ones these days.

    Sleep.

    I still can (and regularly do) sleep in until late morning or even later on the weekend, like I did when I was a teenager.

    Make stupid noises. Beatbox when alone.

    Well there’s no need to keep going on about it. You sound like a broken record.

    But, but, but, the rules in that contest are all about the distance of the skim.  Nothing about number of bounces, let alone accuracy in also hitting the random rock in the middle of the tarn/pond/lake.  Amateurs…

    Was teaching the boys to skim stones the other day, found a perfectly placed standing wave in the river to get really high ones off. I had more fun than them!

    Lime trees in spring

    Are good for eating. Yum.

    When Lady Stardust or any track from the album plays on my playlist at work I sing it word for word
    Still throw 18″ long X 3″ diameter branches to get the big chessys to hit the deck, conkers was a posh word never used in Scotland unless you went to public school
    Just bought a box set of Tin Tin to watch every episode made over the winter
    Lie on the pitch and pee in the hole where the goal post slips into
    Only joking never done that as an adult but if needed to it’s an option

    Don’t have chip shops where I am but I did like scrumps as we Bristolians call em.

    The chippy down the road from me used to sell a big bag of scrumps for about 6d, and it was a BIG bag! Loads of salt and vinegar, it took ages to eat. I doubt any chippy will sell them now. That one is still there, but it’s a burger place now, but I know the bloke who owns it, through his family he has two chippies and two burger places in town, their burgers are as good as anywhere around, with the possible exception of Schwartz Burger in Bath, but I haven’t had one of theirs for years – a twenty-four mile round trip isn’t really justifiable when there’s one down the road!

    Next time I see him I’ll have to ask him, I saw him earlier today in fact, wish I’d seen this post before I went into town.

    Oh, and read loads of books still.

    Knock door ginger on my neighbours. In fairness it’s usually an Amazon parcel.
    Stay up late – sleep late.

    “Still throw 18″ long X 3″ diameter” brought me out both in a cold sweat and jealous rage… until I realised it was not the complete sentence. Phew!

    You can still get bags of scraps in Thirsk (although you have to buy something else as well)
    When last at home I went to the White Horse chippy in the centre with some mates after a day at Dalby. We were eating in and I asked for plenty of scraps, they gave me a heaped cereal bowl full. I felt sick as a dog when I finished them.
