Very good SLR :D.

Mine is moving into a new house at the age of 2. I distinctly remember walking into the bathroom, which had an avocado bath suite!

Looking at a cloth book (with edges cut with pinking shears) at the end of our very long garden in my pram, where I'd been put for a nap. Imagine any mother doing that nowadays - the bad men - or the foxes - could've got me! :o

In the back garden, with a weeping willow tree, suddenly finding myself not able to stand up.

In those days they sometimes overdid it with the polio vaccine. Of course it being the good old days, my parents wouldn't have dreamed of suing the doctor. And after a few hours I was back to normal. But I still occasionally have flashback dreams.
opposed to taking terrapins.

Being rushed back home to tea from shopping, and being in hysterics at my sister and Dad who were doing their best Clangers impressions. I would have been about 2.

My brother's first birthday party. I remember seeing him sitting in a swing and the white iced cake... Must have been 2 years 2 months.

My grandma, who is celebrating her 96 birthday today, recalled her earliest memory to me after telling her about VN. " My brother Jack (a year younger than me) being taken away in the black carriage - horse and carriage - he had diphtheria - the doors closing and the rooms being sealed up in the house. Gran crying" (as called by my mum and the family - Grandma's mum) She thinks she was about 4 years old at the time. Jack survived. Grandma is the eldest of six - four surviving today. She is an avid reader of The Transmitter.

Seeing a fully feathered turkey hanging on our bedroom door at Christmas as our room was the coldest in the house. (We used to sleep three in a bed to keep warm)
