I suffer from this.
I have an awful short term memory, but as for my long term memory...
I can remember what I used to have for lunch when I was at Junior school and what programmes I liked to watch (Button Moon!)
I remember the perfume my mum wore (It helps that she still wears it!), and the smell of her posh leather bag!
I have some of my precious loved toys still, and couldn't bear not to have them...at the grand old age of 35.
I still remember my favourite books...up the faraway tree by Enid Blyton and there are many more.
And some days if I glance at the clock at 3.15pm, I think I used to leave school every day at this time.
Maybe thats why I love vintage things...not just the Shabby Chic things, but things, foods and music from the early 80's.... anything really that can give me a small memory, just to take me back for a moment.
and I find myself missing those times more often than not.
So there I was mooching the charity shops today when I found a bear.
Someone once loved him, he has no fur and must have been cuddled very much.
I couldn't leave him in the cabinet, and he was only 5.00
So he had to come home with me....;0)
Happy Saturday Ladies
