When I was about 6, and before the world became so crazily child-safety-conscious, like it is now, we (I and my cousin) used to go and play in the yard/park nearby without any adult supervision. And I remember telling our grandma that we were going to the park and hiding our toys somewhere under the bench in the snow and going to the library instead. I honestly was convinced that we would be told off for that, going to the library I mean. I was very much into Astrid Lindgren books and my favourite one was Pippi Longstocking of course, I still love it.
