We all have memories of our home when we were growing up. Were there any special items in the house that you remember fondly? Maybe it was a huge chair that you would curl up in. Or you loved the basement or attic of the house. Was there a huge old fashion bathtub in the house where you grew up that you just loved?

I do remember two things I loved about the house I grew up in. One was the attic. We could access it from upstairs were my bedroom and my brothers bedroom were. I had boards across the ceiling joists and lots of scratch insulation up there but it was so neat to sit in there when it was raining and listen. The other thing I loved was a tiny room that was tucked under the stairs. We used it for storing canned goods and other kitchen items. It had the tiniest door and if you were a large person there was no way you could get in there. The door was right next to where the refrigerator was in the kitchen. It was such a tiny place but I just loved going in there and putting away things for mom and dad.

What special things did you love about the home where you grew up?

I specifically remember our house in the country as a two story house. My bedroom was up stairs, and I loved to look out the window at the rolling wheat fields for what seemed to be for miles around. I loved it.

I loved my bedroom at home. It was pink and white and very feminine, even though I was quite the tomboy. I had my favourite books in there and I loved to read, curled up on my bed. My parents always respected our privacy, so I could spend hours there reading, or writing stories and poetry. It was very much a safe haven.

Whenever I get back to British Columbia, and to Surrey, the town I grew up in, I always drive by the house. It still looks exactly the same, and somehow, that's a comfort.

My bedroom when I was really young was purple (my mom's favorite color). In 1976, I talked my mom into turning my room into red, white, and blue (I was 6.) A couple of years later, my mom made Star Wars bedspreads for my bunkbeds and curtains for me. When I turned 11 or 12, I got plain blue comforters because I was "too old for that stuff." Silly, yeah...
