Hi Kim, I found your website through the Jonathan Cainer astrology site today and you have brought me many happy memories which I’d completely forgotten about! (…and I’m only 40! Lol!)
When my friend and I were at our girls High School in Kent, England, UK, we had a long walk from the train station which we used to use to memorize our Latin words for tests when we were 13. We soon found that skipping in time as we chanted helped us get home quicker by speeding our journey and also helped to memorize the phrases far better!
We used to fly past shoppers in the town centre and especially in the winter, wrapped up in our duffle coats, woolen hats and scarves we used to get so warm that there would soon be coats unbuttoned, scarves trailing behind and rosy cheeks by the time we got to school. People used to smile as we whizzed by and we were far happier than we would have otherwise been.
My best friend who I used to skip to school with every day died 12 years ago this year and I treasure my memories of her – I hadn’t remembered that we used to skip to school and home again – thank you so very much for helping me rediscover this and smile 🙂
With love and thanks,
