What is your earliest Memory?

Playing in the field at the back of my house with my friends, we would run around and hide behind a big tree.

Cinderella - I loved stories with happy endings.

Did you have a favourite colour, if yes what was it?

Blue (That's what my mum said)

As a child what did you like playing with, did you have a favourite toy?

A big doll called Sally Anne, my dolls house and dressing up in my mum's clothes and shoes. Everyone said that I lived in a dream world!

Did you have any favourite foods?

Comment from my mum - "You were dreadful with food but strangely liked eating coal!"

Can you remember going to nursery school? Did you like it and what can you remember about the experience? Did you have a best friend?

Yes, I remember going to a house with a garden. I think I went upstairs to a big room with lots of windows but it was a long time ago! and I cannot remember much about what I did whilst I was there.
