Molly at Return of the White Robin sets today's theme
For our last Fun Monday in February on the last day of the month, I would like to hear about an early childhood memory.
The one seated is my Great Aunt Elizabeth who dominated my childhood in the best possible way. She was inspirational, firm, yet fair and a strong traditionalist. Obviously the one with the skipping rope is me. In the background my Aunt and Uncle with whom I spent many happy times.
Between them they taught me things such as knitting and crochet, reading, cooking and a love of books and the countryside.
We went looking for blackberries and wimberries and made pies. We walked miles and miles and the highlight of every walk was a piece of dark chocolate.
Odd as it may seem I still have that skipping rope...
