When I went to Norwich last week I took these photographs of the Street where I spent my youth....and some of the happiest days of my life.
St Peters Mancroft - The Forum and the house where I lived are all on the same Street..
I was walking in front of the Forum although it seems quite empty there were crowds of Children who were on Half-term from school.
They were playing on their Skate Boards - which really isn't allowed as it can be quite dangerous to the public..
I stood admiring the Forum it really is a lovely building.
When all of a sudden I had this terrible pain in the back of my leg...one small lad was doing a spin and separated himself from his skate board which ended up hitting my leg..
He was of course full of apologies - and I could have cried (But I didn't)...
I was meeting Tom at two o'clock and only had a few minutes to get to our meeting place.
How I got there I really don't know, but I did..I then had a look at my leg which had already come up with a beautiful long Bruise..Which was turning to a horrible purple colour.
Tom wanted to go back and have a go at the lad, but I was pretty sure he would have left the area. and they do not have anywhere to play on their skateboards. which is a shame as it leaves them no alternative but to play on the streets.
Anyway the bruising is subsiding now - still sore though...I was lucky as it could have broken my leg..(But it didn't)
The Children are back at school now so may make another visit soon.
