I can't believe that one in 5 people in West Norfolk will go two days without brushing their teeth! Some people admit to only brushing for 60 seconds too! GROSS
I made brushing teeth fun for my kids - look at this.

Where you an angelic child or did you make your parents climb the wall? It seems after this afternoon’s show there really were a lot of cheeky devils back in the day. What kind of stuff did you used to get up to?
Here are just some of the stories
Sarah in Ciderstone
wasn't exactly a child, think I was about 15, but my sister was annoying me so I dipped her toothbrush in the toilet!!
I also used to wrap up empty boxes to look like presents and superglue money to the pavement and hide to see if anyone picked them up. Got chased once by one man who fell for the trick 3 times!! Donna.
Ben in Fakenham
When I was about 11 my sister hit me so I cut off the sleeves of her school shirt, my parents were furious -
Garth in Walsoken
I’d say I was about 8 or 9 me and my brother thought we'd flush our dads false teeth down the loo - he still doesn't know till this day!!
Jackie Mcintyre Haverson
We use to post notes threw people doors saying sorry had an emergency so I borrowed your car . Then wait round the corner to see them come running out lol
At junior school lots of people had combination locks on their bikes, I developed a knack for unlocking them. I would sneak round and change all their locks over, when school finished the fun started.
A group of us each told our parents we were at the other person's house then went off to the 'big park' ... Needless to say we all got in a lot of trouble and I got grounded!!!!x
Hayley Fletcher in Lynn
putting a whoopy cushion under my teachers chair, making a worm sandwich, wrapping up and giving up to my godfather to eat.
Apparently when I was about 5 I smacked my head teachers bum at school luckily he was very nice and got on well with my mum and took it as a joke!!!

Mum said when i was 5 she found red arrows on the hallway wallpaper with felt tip pen, she followed the arrows upstairs and they led to my bedroom...
My brother in law was the worst. 1.got a toilet seat stuck around his neck 2.got bitten by a seal 3.fell down the gap between train and platform 4. got head stuck between railings, 5. went down a hill in a shopping trolley (and through a window) 6. got his fingers caught in a vice ...these are just a few. He's just as accident prone as an adult!

What an amazing time I had on the Tuesday Market Place on Sunday. I’ve hosted GEAR for the past 9 years bringing all the flavour of the event live to listeners on KLFM and have loved every minute of it. It’s getting bigger and bigger all the time too which means great things for our town but also even more money is raised for worthwhile charities such as the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House, Scotty’s little Soldiers and the Air Ambulance to name but three. The determination, the fancy dress, the friendship, the effort and the thousands of runners make this one of my favourite events to cover, it really is quite inspiring to see so many people running 10k on a Sunday Morning. I couldn’t even run the length of the start/finish straight let alone 10k so my hat goes off to each and everyone who took part. Whilst interviewing the runners my path took me along the route participants walked to collect their medal and go back to the Tuesday Market Place and their families, this turned into a running joke as I walked past the finish marshals about 10 times much to their amusement at the idea I had completed the course over and over again.
