My Earliest Memory

It's my second birthday.

I'm sat up to the table in our kitchen, I think in a highchair.

It's dark, and Mum is lighting the candles on my Postman Pat birthday cake. Jess the Cat is peering through the window of the van.

The candle light is flickering. My dad and the next door neighbours are sat around the table smiling at me.

Their faces morph and change in the light of the candles.

I remember thinking they look like my dad and Danielle and Mark, but not really.

Then they sing, and the lights come on and we eat cake.

I am working for the beeb at the moment and am trying to show our politics editor that there are cool fiesty females in the South who are interested in politics- and of course thought of you! btw am in soton for the next fortnight if you fancy meeting for a drink its been too long! x
