No I have a lot of good and bad childhood memories, and a lot of them are not actually with my family, I remember going away on small holidays to the English coast a few times and a trip to the zoo but other than that I blocked most memories out they aren’t happy and when I made the decision of changing my life around I decided I didn’t need the negativity dragging me, I still talk about them and I use it as motivation but I never let it get on to of me. But my positive memories will always be with my friends, I had a lot of friends as a child, some were real friends a lot were fake friends.
My first memory of having a real friend still has an impact on me to this day, my first friend ever was a boy, he went to my first primary school and all I can remember was him tipping his head back and drinking rain water I must’ve been about 6 and I still talk to that ginger weirdo to this day. We don’t keep in touch, but I see him round and about and say hello, he was apart of my friendship group well into my late teens and I’m kind of grateful, as he was real and so sweet.
Come to think of it all my real friends have been male except 2 and that’s my current best friend and an old friend that I have lost touch with as she moved away. I don’t have anyone else in my life except my partner.
My no1 childhood memory would probably with my sisters and my cousin though, even though I have so many friends I love this one the most, I would say I was probably be about 10/11 years old I was still in primary school and I wanted to feel bigger like a proper adult, so I asked if I could take my little sisters and cousins to the park. But obviously I had to abuse my new power and I took them all too the town (about 20 minuets away from town if you only had little legs like mine). We went to a place where our local canal ran down the side of a playing field, a perfect place for an adventure!
So, when we got to said canal, we found a little pathway at the back covered by small woodland (which lead onto private gardens that I didn’t know about) but we found something ill never forget in this cute little area, we found a cute little tree house. We didn’t go inside as it was run down but we loved going to visit it, I think we only went 2/3 times as we got told off for being on private property, we didn’t know at that age and there were no signs as we went through a load of trees to get there, but it was like our own little special place and we loved it.
On the way back from the first ever visit with me having my cousin with me we were only allowed out for an hour, we were gone all afternoon and evening it was night fall by the time we headed home, what we didn’t realise was our parents had called the police worried sick for us. Yet we walked through the door all jolly and happy. We didn’t even really get told off for it either I think our parents where just relieved that we looked after ourselves and we were all okay.
This is probably my earliest and most favourite childhood memory is crazy because I forgot about it until I really though long and hard what you favourite childhood memory?
