Age 6 - 10

An introduction to ages 6-10 - They say that this era of Leg of Life is the most influential on how your life pans out. In brief, my parents split up, move of house, change of schools, cubs, scouts, judo football and rugby all happened here! Read on and learn what happened.

Note from legoflife - This chapter is self explanatory; memories from 6 years old to 10 years old. Each story or post can be allocated to one or more category, i.e., a story about playing the trumpet for the local brass band in a national competition in York, you would tag to appear in Music Category section and perhaps on the ‘Places visited category section’ ’ NB WHATEVER chapter or category section you tag a story in, it will automatically appear in chronological order in the main “timeline" section.
