Monthly Memory Book Prompts for 2012

Right, I’ve got Memory book really organised, do you fancy joining me in going back in time a bit and catching some memories for your kids? Miss L is nearly 6 and she is always asking me what I did when I was little.

I’ve loved reading the memories of her childhood that my mum wrote down for me, so I started to make a Memory Book for my own children, capturing my own childhood, and the characters in it. I hope to get some of my relatives involved in guest posting, and taking the memories further back.

I read this Memory Book post about my Granddad, my cousin and our love of gardening at Britmums.

On the penultimate Thursday of the month, starting from June 2012 I will put up a reminder about the month’s Memory Book theme. The last Thursday of the month will be the Memory Book linky. You could post a single photo, write about your memories, interview a relative, get a relative to guest post, write it as a letter to your child, include a bit of a diary entry, write a list, make some bullet points, whatever you like. When we’ve collected a few, if you want to join me, we can self publish them into a Memory Book.

Next Thursday the theme is Holidays.  Which holidays meant the most to you as a child? Was there a disastrous holiday? What funny/special/random moments stick in your mind. Or, if you want to go further back…where did your children’s grandparents holiday when they were little?
