Welcome to May 4  Today’s prompt is:  Your earliest memory


My earliest memory is a door.
Not just any door, but a front door with three panels and a sideways oval window in the top one.
No-one in the family lived in a house with such a door, yet it was vivid in my mind.
I was three, and for years afterwards everyone thought it was just a figment of my imagination, something I had dreamed.
Some twenty years later my mother, sister and I were going through some old photographs, and there was the door of my memory.
Mum knew exactly where it was and who had lived there, an aunt I had only ‘met’ once before my uncle’s divorce when I was about five.
No-one remembers her though.




About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Thanks for the great post! And a perfect 120 words. 🙂

    I am so happy you were vindicated and have proof of your memory. No one remembers the aunt, but the door has regained a life of it’s own.
