Ok we are on to letter X. I've hit a wall so to speak. Imagination is a big part of being a child so I'm going to use mine now...
X is for Xbox, we never had these as kids! I don't feel old but looking how far technology has come in my lifetime already, is pretty crazy.
The game consoles that were around in the 80s were like this
and now kids have ones like this
and you can do this
X is also for the xtra bits I've forgotten to mention (a cheat me? never, this is the best I could come up with). Yes I know that is not how you really spell extra!
So here's all the xtra bits I forgotten to mention in posts that I wanted to do
When I talked about toys in the letter T I forgot about rubik's cubes, I never masted one and they
drove me mad.
A film I know loads of you would love, I certainly did (still do) is The Goonies. I could tie it in with x, as x marks the spot and the film involved a treasure map (grasping at straws springs to mind). Any way it's a fantastic film!
For yesterdays post I forgot to mention two children's programmes Why don't you? and Wacaday, Mamma J from http://www.mamajhearts.co.uk/ reminded me about them in her comments.
I absolutely loved the Bogwoppit, it was one of the books I orderd from the Puffin book club! I am seriosuly considering getting it again to see if I still would love it.
I discovered Gobbolino through Story teller magazines. My BFF Nik bought me a copy as a present a few years ago and we use to read it to my Hubbys children when they use to stay, they loved it to.
X is a tricky letter and it will be interesting to read what others have chosen to write about for their posts. Did many people actually write about a genuine x word?
On my quest for words beginning with the letter X I came across this on http://oxforddictionaries.com about words beginning with X.
How many words begin with ‘x’?
In the name of blogging from A to Z I could of told a few porkies and talked about playing the xylophone in the school orchestra but that was actually Hubby's memory not mine. I could tell you about a horrid teacher who was mean to all the children and she was an xanthodont (one with yellow teeth) or and was xanthocomic (yellow haired) but that would be a lie. Although we all have a teacher from our childhoods we either loved or hated. We always disliked one called Mrs Wallis, she was a write misery, one of her things was if the class was being noisy we would have to 'look and listen' and keep both our arms up in the air. I can't remember how long for, probably felt like minutes or hours but was seconds.
