lime green leggings and slouch socks.
got to thinking about things i miss, not being 8 any more....rub on transfers were awesome....i remember having ones that came with a background set, so you could create little stories. i also remember trying to transfer them onto my skin.
my sticker book...i spent ages whinging at my mum to buy me stickers from a specific newsagents in sanderstead and then of course, i had to have the right album to put them in...furry ones were in, shiny less so, paper were laughed at...then there was the tragic day that some scummy boy nicked all my stickers and ripped the big rainbow one...he was never charged, and stickers were banned from school.
colouring in books....i liked colouring in pictures of girls wearing big dresses....i'd sit quite happily at the kitchen table for hours, retelling made up fairytales to myself, often focusing largely on dress detail, less so on the handsome prince.
vampire shrinkles...crazy bits of plastic that you cut out and coloured in and then cooked in the oven and they got smaller (excitement!) and then you were supposed to turn them into jewellery...zipper pullers....pencil toppers. i mainly lost them.
stick......on......earrings......i LOVED stick on earrings. i'd save the most "glamorous" pairs for last and then feel embarassed about wearing them in company...like i was too dolled up or something. they always fell off.
