"One of the most precious things that my Mam and Dad gave me was an old leather suitcase of photographs that had been my family in the village of Springside for generations.
Other than these old black and white images, sometimes I have to rely on the images that are stored in my minds eye. It's only a brief snapshot, like those old photos, but sometimes it's like replaying an old film that has all the sounds, smells and tastes that are relived in a dream.
One image that can only have come from the faintest memory, as I don't have a photo of my Mam doing this, is of being tightly tucked in her old tartan shawl and being carried around as she got with the jobs around the house. If I close my eyes I can see that it was a red tartan shawl with big thick twisted tassels around the edge - slightly prickly because of the wool but if I try hard I can remember the scent of the wool too.
I hope this little indulgence into my own memory of my mother helps you to relive a happy time with yours."
