I miss listening to my dad's radio every morning ringing with a radio song "vambora , vambora , tá na hora de ir embora vambora" hahahahah
I miss my brother getting annoyed with me because I used to rummage his things, specially because I've never been allowed to.
And I miss when my dad would go to bed, calling me to stay there with him and my mum.
I think I don't miss anything else.

Well, I miss my grandmother who was a wonderful person, non only to me, but to a lot of people. She was used to tell me some stories when my parents were out at home. I am able to remember some parts of those tales. I also remember the gifts she gave to me.
More, I miss the time I was no tasky, it was a time of plays and imagination.

Gabi,

I would like to suggest that you use "through" after the word rummage. Making the sentence read ... I used to rummage through his things, ...

Otherwise excellent word selection, contex, and construction just like a native English speaker.

Ailime,

May I offer one minor correction, any is plural and concern is singular therefore "a concern" or "any concerns", are correct.

Bill,

Regarding your correction about any concern I think that any is an adjective and it can be used with singular or plural nouns.

Examples with singular nouns:
Without any fear for the future, boys have given up their ambition.( The Guardian)
Atheism "allows someone to move forward and speculate on life without any concern for the dogmatic structure of a religion."(CNN)

Ailime,

Any is normally used to indicate an undetermined or unknown number or quantity, usually in a negative sense, therefore in my humble opinion the preferred use whould be "any concerns", although the two examples you cited are prefectly correct.

I miss when I didn't have problems, when I liked to go to school, when everything was new for me, my house, the people, the school, see the same things, nowadays get me bored, when I could sleep when I wanted, when I didn't need to wash the dishes. Oh, my life was good as child.
