Memories

Thinking about memories this morning (and not essays about eportfolios as I really should be *slaps wrist*), has got me wondering about when they start.

You hear a lot of people say "my earliest memory is when I was X and ... happened", but you never really hear people talking about when the main bulk of their memories start (which for me certainly is significantly later).

Probably, best not waste too much time trawling the internet to find out, so have a poll instead:

Poll #1340877 Memories

At what age is your earliest memory?

Ignoring one off early memories, when do the main bulk of your memories begin?
