[i]...one item in particular, though, had to be rooted out and saved. It was from my mum's flat, and had always been treated with great reverence. Growing up as I did in Stoke-on-Trent, life and value was always marked in pieces of pottery.
This one magical item is a mug: bone china, made by Hammersley to commemorate the moon landing on 20 July 1969, just months before I was born. My mum acquired it while she was pregnant with me, and it was always kept very safe.
For me, it signifies safety and love and questions. The first two are fairly obvious. The third, though – well, what questions could I have about a moon-landing mug? Well, for starters, I don't know where she bought it. Or why she bought it.[/i]
