Halcyon childhood days

Sometimes when we look back on our childhood we have a tendency to remember only the negative things like perhaps being bullied in school. Just once in a while I like to take myself back to some of my favourite moments like those long hot summer holidays we used to have; six weeks off school and all the time in the world. In my day there wasn’t things like Internet or iPads to keep me stuck in the house in fact there wasn’t much of anything. But what there was was the great outdoors and your imagination. I would go out on a warm day, find a meadow, find a tree then lie back and feel the sun on my skin. Occasionally I would open one eye, look up into the sky and see a pirate galleon in the clouds, or the pyramids of Egypt and without a doubt I was there. Halcyon days.
