Letters To Myself #3

Published by Alison Watson-Shields on

As part of Young At Heart ULO’s commitment to encourage and promote opportunities for self-reflection, our members and volunteers are offered the opportunity to write a letter to their past, present or future self on a  regular basis. The letters can be serious reflections on their life or can be a tongue-in-cheek commentary on life in general. Group members can write their own letter or they can work with other people to collectively express thoughts, feelings and emotions. What follows is one of the contributions provided by a group member at one of the writing sessions…

Dear Me,

This is my life:

I played netball for Durham County, did exercises and dancing at agricultural college.

I worked at I.C.I catering for 28 days, did self-catering.

At the old squash club, I played tennis.

I worked for my brother – horrible! I worked at the golf club – catering and washed all the floors. They would not pay so I used to ride to work. I fell over the handlebars one day, but my dad worked at the fire station and mended my bike so I continued to ride to work. Then I worked in the Synthonia for 8 years.

I went to Dubai to see my grandchildren 17 times! I’ve also been to Montreal, which I enjoyed. We went to Abu Dhabi for our anniversary. Now I am at home.
