    Default Your Earliest Memory Ever

    What's your earliest ever memory?

    For me it was being in hospital as a toddler after I fell downstairs and split my head open. I vividly recall being in a cot, playing with a toy horsebox and my dad walking away down the ward while I screamed and bawled my head off. I must have only been 2 yrs old.

    Been in and out of hospital ever since, lol.
    Time is never wasted when you're wasted all the time.

    Probably the same as lots of other people - The Birth of a sibling.
    I remember sketchy moments of the arrival of my sister in 1964 just 3 months from my 3rd Birthday.
    My sister will be 45 next month! Ouch!!
    I go back to the original Jethro Tull - Yes! The seed drill inventor!

    I have a mish-mash of early memories aged around four I guess...playing with my soldiers in the hallway, pedalling my tinplate toy car, our dog running away (never to be seen again )

    -puts Rossobantum on the couch-
    "So do you feel that dog has always been running away?"
    "What does it represent?"

    I can remember getting a green pedal car on my 3rd birthday in 1981.

    I had this even after I was too big to pedal it & got a friend to push me along. Eventually the steering broke & it got chucked out.

    Another memory was my Aunt & Uncle's wedding a few months later, my Mum wearing a bridesmaid outfit that consisted of a peach skirt, brown waistcoat & skull cap. The last one was especially odd as we're not jewish.

    And does the green pedal car represent your repressed anxiety about Hitler? Yes, I'm sure it does.

    What annoys me is that I was 4 when England won the World Cup and I can't remember a bloody thing about it!!

    It's clear you have issues with satsumas. You need to come to terms with their fruity goodness and embrasse the vitamin C.

    There's a few gaps like that in my memory. I can remember the Pope's visit in 1982, but don't recall the Falklands or the World Cup at all.
