Me as a kid

“I’m running away and I’m never coming back!”

Clara Bow in ‘The Wild Party’ <3 1929

Seriously, I actually did this as a kid.  I remember I got really annoyed – I can’t even remember what it was about.  But I decided that I was going to run away.  Mind you, this was back in the 90s, so I had an awesome backpack (bright blue, yellow and red – see it’s all in the details!) instead of a suitcase.

Of course I took the essentials – a skipping rope, my favourite soft toy and a book.

That would have kept me going for a long time.

The only problem?  I wasn’t allowed to cross roads.  So by the time I managed to get myself across the road, it was lunch time.  I was hungry.  So I went home.

I had spent enough time running away.  Time to go home to comfort and warmth.

I don’t know why I remember this so clearly.  It must stand out in my memory pretty well.
