I didn't want to be a hairdresser.
I wanted to be a lumberjack.
Swinging from tree to tree..........

I wanted to be a bridesmaid at that age but it wasn't my ONLY ambition. It was never realised, never will be now.

- to be a bridesmaid...' Gawd, how depressing, the poor little moppet. Whither feminism, eh? I don't think it's fair to inflict any more storylines involving the 'horrible 'orrobins on TA listeners, especially one that involves a mass gathering of the clan, like a wedding. Spare us please!

didn't you ever dress up as a cowboy, or Batman when you were little?
I was dressed up as a cowboy, susers, but never particularly enjoyed it, although adults seemed to. I didn't really see the point of 'play'. I liked reading, drawing and the wireless, (No TV till I was about 12). Batman came much too late for me.
It is stereotyping that ALL women in TA like weddings and dressing up in ridiculous clothes.
Precisely, anna. I think it was the word ambition that I found really depressing. What an ambition! I suppose once she's achieved it her ambition will be to be a bride.

I suspect the 'ambition' really came from the mother! It can be tricky being a parent because it's all too easy to urge your kids to do the things you never did but wanted to.
I too wasn't a great one for 'play'....much preferring to go off in my little dream world. Much better, I think, to let your children find their own ways of playing. They don't need toys to come in expensive boxed sets....there is no need then for them to use their imagination. I remember spending hour upon hour with a simple kite - which was my friend up in the sky!
(Bet you looked cute as a cowboy!)
