Facts about my younger self. 

1. My full name is Sophie Elizabeth (lola) Marie Mitchell

2. Born 29th July 1992.  I had a fat head. 

3. When I was 5 or 6 my special treat was pink pudding. 

4. I collected mud. I dried it out, sieved it and used to proudly put it in jars

5. I wanted to be a cat when I grew up. I didn't grasp animals

6. I had a fake laptop. I never turned it on because I was scared.

7. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and re-locate to the stairs

8.I had a purple gameboy colour and played pokemon all the time. LIKE all. the. time. 

9. I had extra baby teeth and had to have lots of operations to remove them. I also knocked a doctor out. 

10. I decided I didn't want grow.up. So I used to kind of crouch everywhere. 

11. Biting. I think it's safe to say that I did a lot of biting. Of things. and people. and myself. 

12. I was determined to be a famous writer. I didn't realise this involved writing. And then when I did, I sulked. A lot. And used to sit with an empty notebook sighing. Woe is me

13. I could not see. I mean I still can't. My issues started age three and involved a lot of hiding glasses in the sandpit. #buyaspare


Okay. So two of my oldest friends are together in Brussels. Here's to living vicariously through others. Chink.
