"One [memory] is of losing my mum in a clothes shop. I ran around looking at people's shoes under the racks of clothes, Then I saw my mum's shoes - I think they were brown with low heels and a buckle - and I ran round and put my arms around her. Then I looked up - possibly because of a voice that I did not recognise - and it was not my mother but an old lady. I burst into tears. Mum must have then found me - she was nearby but I didn't know that. I often used to get lost in shops as I grew up because I would spend a long time looking at something and not realise that others in the family had wandered off - or that I had wandered off!"
