Memory Meme

Well as promised, I thought I'd share a "meme" this afternoon, which is a little exercise or game designed to give inspiration for blogging.

So today's meme is:

Tell us about your first memory, and share a picture that relates to it. You can call the blog "Memory Meme"

My first memory is of shoes. Many of you won't be surprised at that! And here's a corresponding picture:


It was when I was about two years old. I can remember laying on the back seat of my Grandparents car, with my feet up on the window. Their car was white. I had on red patent leather Mary-Jane shoes, very much like the ones above, only a deeper red and they had gold buckles on them. I also had on little white socks, with frills around the ankle. I remember the sound of my shoes tapping on the glass, and the smell of Minties which my Grandma always fed us when we were in the car (in the vain hope that we wouldn't puke - never worked for me!) The car is stopped and I can see trees moving outside the window in the wind. It's nice, not hot, but not cold either. The shade from the trees is falling across the car really prettily.

So what's your first memory? Go blog NOW! Oh but leave me a comment first... nobody leaves me comments!

Aren't they? Is it any wonder I'm a total Imelda Marcos as an adult?
