When I was a Child...

Knock knock, open wide,

see what's on the other side,

Knock knock, any more,

come with me through the Magic Door.

Our number 1 childhood TV programme was Bosco the little red haired puppet, cute ain't he! Everyone in Ireland will remember him. We didn't watch much television as children but I did like Bosco. He was on television during the week. Every programme featured him going to visit somewhere behind the magic door. At the end of each programme he went back down into his box and my brother cried. It's amazing how the years go by so quick.


  1. Hello, I just discovered your blog. It is so nice, peaceful, endearing, full of goods ideas, soft colours that make you feel happy, so much for me to discover! Didn't grow up with Bosco but can relate to what you say, it's amazing how quick the years go by...and there is so much to discover and enjoy!
    I have added you to my list of blogs to follow and am looking forward to your next post.
    Best wishes, DeeBee

  2. I've never heard of Bosco before but I do love childhood nostalgia and can spend hours reminiscing about tv shows I used to watch as a kid! Button moon, bertha, pigeon street, greenclaws... the list goes on! haha, hope you enjoy your trip down memory lane, it is scary how time goes by so quickly! x

  3. He is cute and I usually don't like clown kind of things!!

  4. Oh I have many childhood memories of favourite T.V. characters...up in Canada we had a guy called MR. DressUP.....

    Jenny, I think I was a few years too young for Button Moon, it looks cute though :)

    Miss Paula and Koralee many thanks for stopping by my blog.

  6. Ah Bosco and the magic door. He always ended up in the zoo though! :-) Brings back memories though. He was everything about Ireland in the 70's
