Extracts from this document...


From my childhood I have some memories that have stuck in my head. All ranging from different emotions some are happy fun sad or not of any significant, but they have all stuck in my mind for an unknown reason. The memory from my childhood that fixed in my mind the most was on 25th of December 1995 the day that day that should be the most happiest of the year but this time it was not. The day started at 5:00am, and as I was only seven years old I frequently need to relive my self and as I was awake at the time I went to the toilet.

She was caring the magic water and sponge, using the sponge she soaked up as much of the magic potion she could whilst lighting a cigarette. The woman congers up pitchers of a wizard in my head with the magic water bucket, the sparks from the lighter and her nose which was enormous and pointy with some blemishes on it. The glasses that she wore could have been put to better use like to fill in a church window as they were that thick. She completed her "magic" on the man stood up whist supporting her lower back, patted him on the head like a dog and ruffled his fur. With the cigarette hanging out the side of her mouth every jaw movement which made the ash fall onto the man with she said "Get up only ten minutes till the end o.k., your ok just unfit" After saying that she walked away cackling.
