|My Mum as a teenager|
I am an only child so I was very close to my parents. I enjoyed going to the library with my dad and choosing my books whilst he chose his and my mum's. After being in the library for what seemed like hours, we would always end up at the little bookshop down the road looking at more books! I still have a real passion for reading and can spend hours looking in bookshops and the smell always takes me back to a time spent just with my dad. We would then go to the sweet shop to get sweets for all of us. Both my parents had a sweet tooth and I couldn't even open a choc bar in my bedroom without my mum asking for a bit! I think my thirst for knowledge and inquiring mind must of come from my dad. I certainly remember sitting for hours talking to him about anything and everything and probably asked him millions of questions, something that drives my husband mad today!

Now I have written this piece, both my parents can now share my journey, a journey I know they would have both thoroughly enjoyed!!
Love you Mum and Dad.xxx
