"It was a girl’s game we played with two balls against the wall, called Ballsy. We had tunes that went with the game.
One was :
KP penny a packet,
First you lick it,
Then you crack it
Then you wipe it down your jacket,
KP penny a packet.
There were different actions. You went through and as soon as you went wrong the next person would do it. You built up and built up and it could take a couple of hours as there were perhaps 6 girls and only two balls. " Linde
"One of the games we played was Beds. You would draw a bed on the pavement with a half circle and numbered boxes and you would have your peever which was usually a bit of marble or a boot polish tin and you would slide the peever along. We called it Beds but it was called Hopscotch in the south." Irene
"We played the same game as Linde described but we had a different rhyme. We used to say:
One, two, three alairy
My balls down the airy
Give it to Mary
Not to Charlie Chaplin."
