Journal Jar: Cousins

I still have my journal jar prompts and will be posting more posts using them in 2016.

Do you have special childhood memories of playing with cousins? Talk about them.

Most of my memories of playing with cousins are from when we were all quite young.  As my family lived in various countries when I was growing up, we didn’t see our cousins very often.  We didn’t keep in touch very well either as we didn’t have all the internet technology to keep us together.

However, I had quite a close friendship with one of my cousins.  He is 8 months older than me.  When I went to boarding school my grandma was originally my guardian and I would go to her house every weekend.  My cousin would come over with his parents every Sunday for dinner and we would play in the garden.  He taught me how to throw and catch a ball – I was rubbish but as I was on the rounders team it was a useful skill to have.  I taught him how to roller skate and we’d go up to the park and roller skate through it.

    I have a lot of cousins. Like really a lot. i can’t even tell you exactly how many!! I have never even met some of them.
    We left the Midlands and moved to Scotland when I was just nine, at that point I didn’t have any siblings so my cousins were very important to me. I was the baby of the family so I looked up to all of them.
    I lost touch with a lot of them but got back in contact with some of them in recent years through Facebook. Hooray!!
