Before I Can Remember

Here is a video made up of home movies that my parents took when I was little. These are things which fit before the first chapter, but I thought I'd include it, almost as an introduction to the timeline. 

Here are a few photos from this time as well:

As I mentioned in the video above, I had eczema when I was baby (well, for a long time, actually, but it was severe when I was a baby), so my parents had to truss me up so that I couldn't scratch myself.

Me before my Christening:

And a nice professional photo from around the same age:

Chapter One - Jigsaw Puzzles


Thomas The Tank Engine and Friends

Thomas the Tank is still really special to me - here are the seasons which I watched as a child:

Season Two (1986)

Season Three (1991 &1992)

I didn't prefer any one season, as I had a compilation video which had a mix of episodes on it - here is my favourite episode:



Sensory Memories

In this chapter, I mention that I loved how the living room carpet, and the tassels on the sofa felt - here are some photos of me in our living room:


Here's a photo of my and my Mum in our garden; I didn't mention it in the book, but, the pole I'm holding on to is the clothes line pole, and I remember running around it holding on with one hand, as fast as I could (singing *round and round the garden, like a teddy bear*, which my parents used to sing to me) for as long as I could before I was too heavy to do it anymore! It seemed to always be cold and I liked how smooth it was.

Here I am in the snow! I don't seem to be bothered by it. I've loved the snow for as long as I can remember!

I remember spending a lot of time in boxes or surrounded by soft toys (or both) - I liked how it felt to be packed in tightly with toys - I used to sleep with them all on my bed too, for years, to feel closed in.

I regularly used to pile lots of clothes on and wander downstairs to show my Mum. I think I liked how heavy it felt, that would make the most sense - I still like to be under heavy materials now.

Here I am with a giant potato that my Dad grew - though I'm not sure how big it actually was, since I'm only one and a half here!
