    My friend made me a scrap book for my 40th birthday.
    It is full of wonderful memories and laughter - it makes me laugh and cry everytime I look through it.

    Apart from people and animals, mine would be my laptop, not because it's important item, but because it allows me to have free video calls to my mum, dad, & bro and we can all see and speak to each other from across the miles. I'll never forget the day my mum made her first video call, she was like a kid at chrstmas :D

    I honestly have nothing material that is more precious than my animals. Out of them all Kane the horse means more, he was given to me by my mum and dad when I was 35 years old. It was a running joke that every Xmas from a very early age I asked them for a rocking horse (you know a proper old fashioned one) and they always said they couldn't afford it!! One Xmas my mum gave me a tiny wooden rocking horse with a tag on his neck saying that I was to get myself the horse of my dreams but not a wooden one a living breathing one!!! I'd never owned my own horse before I'd always had to loan or go to riding schools. So while Kane himself is a very special 'person' the fact he came from the 2 people I respect and love more than anyone in the world makes him the best thing ever!! :thumbup:

    The browband which belonged to my horse. Its just a band which goes across the forehead on the bridle. Its brown leather and brass plated. I always loved it and thought the brass plate just suited him so much (he was palomino) and its the one item I will keep forever.

    If it can't be anything to do with animals we owned then it would be a print of an A3 picture of horses which was the last thing my Dad bought me before he left.

    My memories. You can't have them stolen or taken from you and you can never lose them. Other than to Alzheimers but then you don't remember you had them in the first place! ;)

    Hmm this is a weird one

    I have taken this mouse with me on every important test/exam of my life, 11+, gcses a levels, driving test. It will be at Willows first show.
    It is a piece of my mums childhood and also mine and it is very special to me.

    One of them is my great grandmother's Cinderella book. It's a book with lovely pictures in it, but what makes it really special, is that she used to read it to me when I was little. There were songs and everything and when I got the book after she died, I could't find all those lovely songs and extra bits. She had made them all up to make the story more special :D
    I also have an old metal bowl my grandfather used when baking chips. He always used to bake his own fresh chips for us, even when my OH and I came by when he was ill. He got out of bed and made us chips even though he was feeling poorly :001_wub:
    I nicked it after he died :blush:, didn't want anything else of his. This made me remember him more.

    I have a book with handwritten notes and photos from all my friends from when i lived in norway. Most of the book is in Norwegian and no one else can read it and i think it's the sweetest thing anyone has ever made me.

    Then the amazing facebook led me to reconnect with my best friend from when i lived there about 10 years after we lost touch.

    My silver heart necklace OH got me for my birthday last year.
    A little ornament of a dog I was given, thought I had lost him along with all my other dog ornaments when we moved here. Then found him in my bedside cabinet.
    My wee st bernard dog teddy mum won out a grabby machine when we went on holiday to blackpool when I was wee, its now been relegated to the top of the wardrobe but before I met OH it came to bed with me! Lol
