We are back again for Throwback Thursday. Maggie is pinch hitting for Lauren today who had some personal things to attend to. She will be back next week.
If you care to join in , it’s easy. This week’s prompt is: Secrets, Hiding Places and Niches.
Now as far as these questions go my answers are I am afraid rather boring. I am sure there will be some really exciting answers from some of you … anyway here goes!
Did you keep a diary or a journal? If so, where did you keep it?
Do you know I really do not remember keeping a diary or a journal when I was young… Sometimes we’d have to keep one for school during the holidays, strange really.
Did you have treasures or money you hid from siblings or parents?
Again not really, I just was not very secretive. I never had much money!
Did you have a need to hide things your parents would not approve of, like cigarettes, etc.?
Yes when I was older cigarettes but I don’t remember hiding anything.
Thinking back, describe your most creative hiding place.
Oh! Gosh under my bed or the back of a cupboard…. Not very inventive!
Did you have a tin box or safe or a diary with a lock?
What about yourself? Did you ever have a favorite get away spot or hiding place?
No not really our house and garden really were not big enough.
If you did not feel the need to hide away, where did you go for a little alone time?
My room, but I shared a room up until I was fifteen so it wasn’t easy to find space. There was always the crescent outside of our home, a circular grassed area with trees, it was surrounded by railings and bushes. I would spend time there if it was empty.
If you had siblings, did they hide things from you? If so, what types of things?
I really don’t remember.
Now that you are an adult, do you still have little niches where you hide things away, like mad money, treasured letters, etc?
No really I don’t.
When you feel the need to be alone, to where do you retreat?
The garden ,the spare room or the kitchen.
Sorry I am a tad
