My three earliest memories

I have three memories from when I was really young. Here they are..

The scratch

I remember riding my first bike and as a consequence one of my first failures of judgement. I saw a gap between two parked cars and determined I could get my bike between the two. I was wrong and the handlebars of my bike scratched the side of one of the cars as I forced it through the gap. Still feel guilty about this.

The frogs

I remember collecting frog spawn and my mum saying they would need to stay outside over night. They were placed in a washing up bowl and when I came down the next morning they had all hatched and were jumping about the garden!

The Hill

I remember walking up a hill in the countryside with my mum. We were on the road because there was no pavement.
