Swinging on Judd Crescent

What a good walk this was! This is the park on Judd Cres, right across the road from where Dave grew up (just around the corner from where we live now). And we walked up Toomath and up the back to get to it. I tried to explain to Charlotte that the green house is where daddy grew up but she was more interested in the slide.

This playground has certainly grown since we were kids playing here (or hanging out smoking). We did lots of crawling through tunnels, sliding down slides and I am SO not putting up the action shot mum took of me falling off the playground! >_< Here’s my cutie:

I had to give her a shoulder ride home, as she got really tired. We didn’t get back until 8.30pm and her bedtime is 7pm. Eek!

Some punkarse kids left the cover off a manhole at the back and it’s a LONG drop into the darkness down there. I tried to put it back, but it was too heavy. I hope nobody gets hurt or falls down and kills themselves.

Btw, KMFDM are innocent!

One thought on “Swinging on Judd Crescent

  1. Playgrounds sure have changed since I was a kid….geez, how long ago was that? We had metal and wood contraptions designed to weed out the weak and feeble. The playground was gravel and pavement with a little broken glass mixed in. ;)
    “I tried to explain to Charlotte that the green house is where daddy grew up but she was more interested in the slide.”
    I could just about get into Charlotte’s head:
    Michelle: Charlotte, daddy grew up in that house over there.
    Charlotte: Yeah, yeah mum, I see it. Don’tcha see that kickin’ slide over there? Get moving already!
