Did you wish you had more brothers and sisters? Why?
They say you don’t miss what you never had but sometimes I wish I’d had a brother although I was very close to one of my male cousins growing up as we were born 7 months apart. He taught me how to catch a ball and play cricket – I’ll forgive him for hitting the ball into my eye one day – and we used to go roller skating together in the local park.
I was supposed to have another younger sister but that wasn’t to be. I was still quite young when my mum was pregnant and don’t actually remember it, probably because she wasn’t really showing when she lost the baby at around 5 or 6 months and the outstanding memory of that time is having a carving knife dropped on my leg by my uncle while he was sharpening it!
