» My Biggest Disappointment

when my aunt burnt the rice pudding
When I was about 6 years old we went on a family holiday to Cornwall. They were always a great laugh - a big farmhouse, me, my bother, mum, dad, aunt, uncle, cousins and grandparents. Around this time I was very very fond of rice pudding, so much so that I had been pestering my mum all day and had been promised my heart's desire that evening. I cannot over emphasize just how much I wanted rice pudding. It was my aunt's turn to do the cooking that night and although it is not hard to heat a tin of rice pud up she managed to burn it, much of it sticking to the bottom of the pan. It tasted disgusting - I was totally incensed, just old enough to know it was only bloody rice pudding and really I should get a grip, but young enough still to lack emotional control - I felt my white hot rage and utter disappointment immediately, intensely and completely. I just didn't know what to do, so I flounced off hissing "it's burnt", tears pouring down my cheeks.

» Phobias

chewing foil, mum eating and not closing the front door properly
Not really a phobia but I cannot stand, when eating sweets or anything that has individual units wrapped in foil like Toffos, biting off a little bit of the foil wrapper by accident and it rubbing on my fillings as I chew, making my mouth go metally. It's making my arms tingle just writing about it.

When I was a child the sound of my mum chewing her dinner really freaked me out - also in the summer when she had bare feet she would sometimes stretch out her legs and spread her toes out, for some reason I used to find this quite disgusting. Actually I think I was a horrible horrible ungrateful child - I found my old spirograph in the loft the other day and on the bit of thick cardboard used to pin the cogs and wotnot to I had drawn a bedraggled woman with a dripping nose and underneath I had written, "Mums work is disgusting, she puts her hands in the toilet" and on the other side "Mums got gooleys".

I am always scared I have left the front door open by accident after leaving my house, and being aware of this I usually deliberately pay attention and register it's successfully shut. Sometimes I forget though and have even had to turn the car round mid journey to go home and check (I pretend to go in a get something). I have had it where I did one of these checks and then couldn't remember again if I had closed the door properly after I left the second time. Maybe I should just do a visual inspection instead of starting up a whole new opening/closing the door session, but I don’t want people to know that’s what I’m doing you see.
