Outside games - Most of my time as a child was spent out in the street. We'd play hopscotch, ball games, hide and seek, circle games like 'The Farmer's in His Den'. Sometimes we'd sit on the kerb and talk or write down car numbers. A favourite game was skipping and there was always someone who had their Mum's old washing line that we could use. We'd have the rope stretched from one side of the road to the other. I don't remember cars bothering us very often and if they did we just stepped aside. We never argued or needed an adult to sort things out. We all knew the rules and we played by them... at least, that's how I remember it.
