This is actually harder than I thought it would be. Do you “remember” certain things, not because you actually do remember them but because they’ve been talked about so much by your family, or because you’ve seen a photo?

I think I have a memory of running up the side passage of my grandparents’ house in Clovelly, and seeing my grandmother in the sun, pruning the large hydrangea bushes in the small back garden. She died when I was two years old. That must be my memory, because there aren’t any photos of it and when I described it to mum, it wasn’t anything she had told me.

That’s a nice memory to have.
