Do you get those moments when something really little will trigger a memory? songs are a big one for me, I can instantly be transported to my Auntie's old farmhouse if I hear "I saw the sign" or eat chocolate wheetos, play me "build me up buttercup" and I am in Sporties (my university 'club'), whilst "Sk8er Boi" reminds me of working in Boots. Walking through crisp autumn leaves remind me of walking to the local November 5th firework display as a child. Balls of wool .... well they remind me of the time I was very sick while in year 4 at primary school.
This weeks strange moment ...... cold roast potatoes. I opened the fridge and there they were, right were I
left them after dinner, and wow. I was transported straight back to Christmas/ Boxing Day. Weird right? I mean I must eat cold roasties all the time why should they remind me of Christmas?
Do you have any strange connections?
