Hideaway, for Childhood Week (I know I'm so slow ! But I'm keeping up the challenge, bit by bit ) Swipe next for closer peek>
Madras, late 90s. My favourite hiding spot was my fathers roof, peak of summer . You climb up to the 'ironing room' which was the attic, where my dad stored ALL his Asterix, TinTin, MAD magazines, Penthouse (lulz) and a zillion Top Gear mags. Let yourself out quietly onto the locked up balcony filled with muddy leaves, and clamber over onto the gently sloping roof. Stuff as many books as you can under your arms, sometimes take two trips in the heat of the afternoon when they're all asleep. It'll all be worth it. If you have friends (let's call them A and A) make it a Tang juice picnic. Don't spread out on the roof, or you'll lose your secret. Find a nook, use your arms and legs and nestle firmly there like a proud little bird.
