How many of us write down our life memories as we get older? Whether it’s for our own record, or to share with family or friends, it’s worth considering doing it while we have spare time on our hands.

I know my mother has recently started doing hers, and from the one or two stories she has shared with me to date, it makes me realise there is so much I don’t know about how her life unfolded in her eyes. Each persons journey through life is very different, and even if it provokes emotional memories, it is also nice to recall the times that shaped our lives.

During this coronavirus lockdown we may be able to do something worthwhile with our time.
