The Teenage Chronicles #2

We've all been teenagers at some point in our lives, but if you could go back and tell yourself what you know now, you would right? But some of the things we do as teenagers make us who we are today. As part of a new series on my blog I am doing a series of posts on my teenage life. The second post is about my own "sleepover club". When I was in year 7, my favourite programme was the sleepover club, I had a group of 4 friends, we used to get dropped off in town to meet up as a group, we would do the things normal 12 year old girls do when they are allowed to go to town, spend time all the shops their parents hated spending time in. Back then my favourite shop was MK1 what happened to that shop?! Where we would buy neon vest tops and blue jeans. Great fashion sense obviously, we would have lunch in Mcdonalds followed by a trip to a sweet shop and get a huge bag of pick n mix, everything your parents moaned about letting you do. As well as shopping in town we would have sleepovers at each others houses, just like the programme all that was missing was a club book, so on a trip to town we bought the brightest coloured book, and a pack of gel pens and during lunchtimes and at sleepovers we would try our own sleepover challenges like the programme, and write it all up afterwards, we would take it in turns to host sleepovers and who ever hosted the sleepover wrote in the book- very organized I must say. I think the club lasted for about 8 months and we started to grow out of it and the TV show finished. I've got to admit we thought it was cool at the time, but it really wasn't. I mean who writes about every event of a sleepover in a book, and it had a huge list of a our weekly crush, after finding this book out a couple of weeks, I was in hysterics about some of the boys we fancied. But it's fun to be young and naive, and I think I'll keep this book for a while. 

Was anyone else part of a club when they were younger?

  1. I love this idea, teenage years are definitely an interesting time for all haha! I'm actually a bit jealous I never had a club!


  2. The Sleepover Club was my favourite TV show when I was younger too! I remember doing the exact same thing with my friends, good times! :)
