My childhood memory.

Extracts from this document...


My childhood memory... I had just had my third birthday and loved to go to the park. My favourite thing was to whizzzz down the slide very fast. It was a sunny Sunday afternoon and I was off to the park with my mum, dad, sister and newborn brother. The park that we were visiting had a slide. From my memory the slide seemed absolutely massive but then I was only three at the time and things do seem a lot bigger from that height. As soon as we arrived I ran towards the slide. I could hear my mum in the background calling after me. I, as usual I didn't listen. I was always rushing off. I climbed the steps hurriedly, I couldn't wait to get to the top. Soon I reached the final step and had a view over the whole park and playground. ...read more.


However the story didn't end there. A couple of days after that, my right eye had gone purple and swollen. My mum thought that we should pop to the doctors to have it checked. A Pretty simple appointment or so she thought. The visit was a disaster from the very beginning.

This was as you might think quite a good hiding place. This may well have been true if I had put my legs inside the wardrobe and not left them dangling out with my head hidden behind the doors.

Suddenly I lifted up her paper the pens rolled off the sheet and onto the floor. I tore her picture in half and then in half again till it was like confetti on the ground. Then, if that was not enough I hit her over the head and ran screaming to my dad, who just stood there staring at this spoilt little three year old who was red in the face and making such a scene that the whole waiting room was looking and staring. The other girl was also whimpering. After, I was made to say "sorry" and pick up all the mess. We went home. After another couple of days the eye was better and the following week we returned to the park. I still ran and rushed down the slide like nothing had ever happened. However, the one thing that will never leave me, even after 11 years, was the anger that had filled me that day. That, I will never forget. 11.09.2003 Eleanor Simms English homework ...read more.
