I hereby tender my resignation as an adult!

Whilst looking for the Hubster's birthday card today, I came across this one and I absolutely loved it.

It kind of got me thinking, yes it's right, it's never too late, lets do it!

So today, 3rd October 2011, I hereby officially tender my resignation as an adult.

I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of the 8 year-old me again. Thank you.

8 yr old me, outside the church waiting for David Cassidy to arrive and marry me!
Cos that's far more exciting than a First Holy Communion
I want to go to the cafe in the market and think that it's a four-star restaurant.

I want to sail paper boats across a big muddy puddle and chalk a hopscotch on the pavement.

I want to think lollipops are better than money because you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stall with my friends on a hot summer's day.

I want to make silly poses........................

................and pull funny faces.........................

........................... in every photograph.

I want to return to a time when all you knew were colours, multiplication tables, fuzzy felts and Michael Bentine's Potty Time but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care.

I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good. I want to believe that anything is possible.

I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.... pulling a Christmas cracker and winning, like the fumbling fingers excitedly opening up a lucky bag and the absorption in making a daisy chain.

I want to live simple again. I don't want to face days that consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, gossip, illness and loss of loved ones.

I have always believed in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So . .  take my cheque book, my car-keys and my credit card bills. Today I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further with me, you'll have to catch me first, 'cause...

"Tag! You're it."

Will you resign with me today and come outside to play?
