Teehee...hello seedofchucky, I could ask ther same!
Long story shortened; I rewrote the Goldilocks story, as a kid, to Mouldilocks and the 3 heirs, basing Mouldilocks/Goldilocks on myself and the 3
heirs/bears on my 3 younger brothers (highly overactive imagination as a child - in fact that's probably still true, thinking about it!)
The youngest brother was only around 2 at the time and evidently related to the story on such a level that he thought I actually was Mouldilocks!
Needless to say, my parents found this hilarious, especially as my youngest brother refused to acknowledge me by my real name, and so my whole family
have called me Mouldilocks, or Mouldy, ever since!
Not the most flattering of nicknames, I know, but I always think its a sign of a close family when nicknames are used rather than real names.
My brothers nicknames are Denzel, Mummy's Little Soldier and Oswald! My mum's nickname is Soldier's Little Mummy....so at least I am not alone in
not being addressed with my given name!
