30 day challenge - Earliest memory

This is tricky because, having a vivid imagination, I cannot be sure which of the earliest memories are genuine and which are imaginings from stories that I have been repeatedly told.

My earliest memory could be one of these...
  • A blue sun hat.
  • Eating - or trying to eat - a packet of cigarettes.
  • A traumatic incident involving a paper easter bonnet.
  • Being pushed off a slide.
  • Running around like billy-o with a cuddly toy snake.
  • Waking up in the night and trying to go to my parent's room, only to shut myself in a cupboard.
I find it very hard to put childhood memories in chronological order.
