Today Ricki Rocho at Rambles and Randomness is hosting the Memory Lane blogest and I decided to join in the fun. All I have to do is answer the questions, which are all related to memories of my past. So here goes.
1) When did you start your blog?
I started my blog some time back in 2009, but back then I called it ‘A State of Confusion’ and I barely posted on it. I only really started blogging seriously last year during NaNoWriMo.
2) What is first denomination (price) of postage stamp you remember?
I’m ashamed to say I have no idea how much stamps cost now, let alone sometime in the past. I do remember that ‘back in my day’ chocolate bars used to be 30p and not the extortionate 50p+ that they do now for a bar half the size of the old one….*grumble*.
How old were you when you learned to ride a bike?
I think I was about six. I remember my step dad taking me out in the back yard and holding onto the back of the seat while I pedalled furiously and then letting go without me knowing to build my confidence up.
What was the first concert you attended without parental supervision?
Sadly, I’ve only ever been to gigs and concerts with my parents! But, in my defence, their taste in music is pretty good!
How old were you when you got your first kiss?
Oh sometime in primary school. Probably about nine? I don’t remember it at all though so it was probably an awkward, slobbery experience that is best forgotten. I do remember my first kiss with my boyfriend though. We were both kind of hovering there in the porch not sure whether to go for a hug or a kiss and it was very shy and unsure.
What is your earliest memory?
Hmm…I can remember going to playgroup when I was probably about three and they gave us a choice between making jam sandwhiches or peanut butter sandwhiches. I had no idea what peanut butter was so I went for that one and I remember being really revolted by the taste. Luckily they let me swap it for jam which I was more familiar with. I’ve never touched peanut butter since.
