My wooden house

I cannot remember much of my childhood. I grow up on the countryside in a house on a hill with no neighbours. I used to play with my brother and my two cousins which lived in the same house. We played together most of the time and we always played outside, no matter the weather. My grandfather build me a small house with a fully functioning kitchen and a living room. He used to build me a lot of toys, since he was a carpenter, and spend a lot of time together in the wood workshop together. I loved to play in and around the house. Sometimes we transformed it in a circus by covering it with fabrics and we organised shows. Our parents and grandparents had to come and watch us perform.
