Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.
Many things take me back to my childhood, before my teens things were pretty idyllic, There are intrinsic things in my personality, little sayings that just slip out when I least expect them and I remind myself of my grandmother or father.
Music that reminds me of childhood is ABBA and Tina Turner I would dance and parade around in oversized dresses and shoes and paint my face like a clown.
Taste is mashed potatoes and cottage pie as grandma taught me to make or roast beef sandwiches like Auntie taught me and baby lettuces.
Smell is YSL Paris perfume my mum and most of the women in my family wear it, except grandma, who liked to be different and wore L’Aimant.
Daily I am reminded of my childhood and I am so grateful for that. That I didn’t become so jaded from my adulthood
