Your earliest memory

49 posts in this topic

I remember a friend telling me she remembered her mum's funeral, just bits and pieces, like dropping a rose on the coffin, phenomenal since she was about 2 when her mum died.

 

I think my earliest was at 3, I had this teddy which was like a baby chicken and I remember laughing as my dad was playing with it saying "tweet tweet".

 

Either that or the sewing factory my mum and grandads 2nd wife used to work at in Park Royal, round the corner from Makro, it seemed huge, I used to play with the large spools of cotton and bits of dried leather glue which was like gum, I used to wonder how the pinking shears cut material zig zag aswell lol.

 

What's yours?

I think it's interesting how we kinda suddenly switch on and are aware of our consciousness from about 3, it's kinda like we were born at that moment and life began from there.

Gasping for air trying to live. Thing is I still see the man who saved my life and I always see if he is okay as I know without this man I would be dead

Madness.

 

Replace he with she and mum with dad and that's me, didn't expect to see that when I came in here.
