Simple prompt today: does what it says on the tin.
What’s your earliest childhood memory?
Mine is a dark dining room in a black and white cottage. The room was filled with dark, heavy, old-fashioned furniture, and I remember even with the curtains open it was gloomy.
My aunt was reading me a story.
We were on holiday in Ynys in North Wales.
Your turn: what do you remember?
And, to take the prompt further, what does it mean to you now? Why do you think this memory stuck with you?
Set a timer for 5 minutes and see what happens.
