I asked the children about their childhood memories, Splosh gave us his here
And now it’s Bernard’s turn, this is what my baby girl remembers of being little!
“When mum asked us to think about childhood memories, I realised that I only seem to remember the weirdest things in incredible detail, or nothing about the event at all.
Some of my most peculiar memories? – Splosh taking a photo of me taking a photo of him outside Dover castle, and this being the most hilarious thing ever. – Being really excited that Dad let me use some old caraway seeds form the cupboard while I was “cooking” in the garden, because that would obviously make mudpies completely edible. . .what can I say, I wasn’t very logical as a child. When Splosh got really into the whole skateboard/BMX thing and let me join in with him practising tricks in the garden, and I was the fool that ended up with a broken rib. Eating pate and coleslaw sandwiches in a tent in the garden with Splosh. When we went on a cycle ride and brought Eccles cakes to eat on the way home. On one of the many occasions that Splosh took me into town to see his friends in the holidays and I was playing on his skateboard, when I hit a bump, the skateboard when out from underneath me and Splosh grabbed the back of my dungarees and saved me from falling down. The album ‘Warning’ by Green Day still makes me think of the smell of washing up liquid, because for months on end Splosh had to have it on while we washed up.
My list could go on and on, but I think you get the point. Although they are all a bit random, there are two things that link my childhood memories together, my loving family and an overwhelming sense of happiness.
Yes, me and my brother did a lot of stupid things as children, but they all still bring a smile to my face when I think of them, as do all the things we did together as a family.
I think, if anything, my memories prove the concept that, children remember the weirdest things, but as long as you give them a supportive home, then they’ll always remember happy things.”
If I never achieve any thing else in my life, that fact that I have these 2 amazing people for children then I have achieved the greatest thing in the world!
