My mum gave me a few old school books of mine she'd kept the other week, so I scanned my favourite pages in before consigning them to the great recycling bin in the sky...
I struggle to do these things now...
I vaguely remember going on a trip with my parents and brother to see an Egyptian exhibit, and my brother being told they would leave him with the mummy overnight if he wouldn't stop being naughty. I kind of hope this is the event being referenced, because otherwise I was just some weird kid who wanted to see tombs and eat cheese on toast afterwards.
In my parents' recollections I'm always yelling at my dad as a little kid, so it's good to see proof that I spread my temper around. (!)
There were a few of these weird little stories in the book - Tommy Blue Tit featured prominently in one, and Moses in another. (It is not ours to question the teaching methods of the early 90s.) This one just edged its way into favourite position because of the 'secret life'. :D
The excitement, it never ended!
