Question Relive the best week of your life again

Aberdeen Shrimper

The Man who sold the world
Aug 9, 2008
If you had the opportunity to relive a week from your past what week would it be and why.
When asked, I considered many options including the week my son was born, the week I got married, various Southend United experiences from Benji at Bury to Man U and Chelsea.

But for some reason I decided on the first week of a 2 week holiday to Cornwall, I think that I was 9 or 10 and we were travelling to Looe in Cornwall. My dad always used to like to set of in the very early hours of the morning, (back in those days there was no M25 so it was a trip through London). Like most 9 year old I could not sleep and neither could my sister who was a year older than me.

We left at 1am IRRC on a damp and chilly morning. As dawn was breaking, I was asleep in the back of our dark blue Triumph Dolomite snoozing away, when the sun beating down on my face woke me up, we were travelling on a motorway with the sun blaring down on our way to a holiday park in Cornwall and I was the happiest boy on the face of the planet and to top it all of, a song came on the radio that must have been in the charts at the time and it has been tattooed on my brain ever since. The first few bars of the song to this day make me feel incredibly happy and exited like no other song ever written. The following week/fortnight was amazing, I fell in love for the first time with a fat girl from Dudley and wore my first pair of sta press trousers, brown Ben Sherman top and a pair of brogues. I thought I was the coolest cat on the block.
So…..that was the week that I would most like to go back to and relive……..what is yours?
PS. You can not change anything that happened!
