March, 2021

After having a ‘Grandma’ book for Christmas another of my Granddaughters sent me another one.  I have been busy writing and answering the questions and remembering – it is however a lovely idea and passed many an hour for me during lockdown .

Then I had a telephone call from my niece asking if she sent me a letter could I answer some questions about her mother (my sister Iris) and her mother and dad.  It would seem that the younger generations are eager to learn about their past.

I couldn’t believe it when I heard on T.V. that February 15th was the 50th anniversary of decimalisation.  I can remember how hard it was to get used to the new currency, especially for older people, but younger people and children soon accepted it.  They laughed at us when we referred to shillings and half crowns.

I never thought the day would come when money would be almost obsolete, but during the pandemic nobody wants to accept cash.  I find it hard to have no money in my purse, but let’s face it there are still times when you need cash as not everyone you deal with has a card machine, e.g. the window cleaner and the chiropodist.

I saw in one of my friendship books – Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them, and never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because you won’t have a leg to stand on.

Take care of yourselves and as the nights are getting lighter,  let us look forward to brighter  times.

A New Year During my early years the New Year did not have an impact on me.  I was tucked up in bed well before midnight.  As I grew older I remember my mum opening the back door to “Let the old year out and the new year in.”  Sometimes we lived close enough to the village church to hear the bells ringing in the New Year.&n...
