I've just dug into the "Ring O Bells Mystery" after having finished "5 Children and It".

What's surprised me about the 5 Children story was how much of it I had no recollection of all reading - obviously, I had skipped over the hard words! So it was a discovery as much as a revisiting.

Reading the books does help take me back to a time before all the trauma in my life occurred, when I was able to soothe myself quite a bit with the books. It wasn't until I'd reached my early teenage years that things became difficult; my father's drinking career really took off, and my mother emotionally abandoned us children. (That's why I struggle so much with the Dr Bob stuff, BTW - it does trigger some heavy issues within me.) So reading the books almost allows me to get back to that original ClearSkies, before all the bad stuff happened to her. It is such a relief to find her still able to enjoy the stories and to recreate the environment in which they were read.

I'm taking it as slowly as I can, so I can relish the experience. I get the feeling I'll only be doing this once.
