Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to write. As a little girl, long before I could write or read, I would sit on my bed with my toys and tell them a story. Sometimes I would lose myself to the fanciful thought that I was a ‘great writer,’ and with pen and paper, I would write my novel. Not being able to write at the time may have put some children off. But if I could make a mark on the paper, I was writing.
I used to be so scared of the dark that my parents bought a radiator that gave out a soft red glow. The house didn’t have central heating, I know, it’s incredible!
I have a twin sister. We are identical, and people still get us mixed up today! Of course, like most kids, we used our likeness to our advantage. Mum was once called into school because we kept swapping our name badges round.
I am the little girl on the right
The perfect part of the day is that time in the morning when there is no one else around but me. I sit hugging my coffee, watching the birds swoop on the bird table. It is peaceful, without stress or thought and indulgent.
I still have the teddy bear my dad gave me when he brought mum, my sister, and me back from hospital. That bear and I have been through a lot. I do feel, however, that I have managed to come out of our relationship looking better (for the moment). His white fur (or what is left of it) is now grey, and his little red paws are wearing away. His head wobbles to one side. But he still smiles at me and sits proudly on his chair.
