As I walk back from the gym each morning, I turn the corner into our little street, and I see two big black noses sticking through our garden fence. It's our two labradors, Schofield (named after the main character in Prison Break) and Scarlett (named after Scarlett Johansson).

I imagine I was no older than 10 or 11 years old, playing with my brothers and our neighbours -- the Leith Brothers -- after school, like we did most days.

But this day was different because we'd found a box of matches lying in the grass beside the road.
