My daughter gave me one of these books with blank pages to fill in.
Although there are questions at the top of each page, it’s not easy.
Then there’s the chore of longhand, after using a computer for so long this is not easy either , no deletions or corrections are possible. I have chosen an ink pen to make me try harder !
First question is about the easiest, asking ‘where & what time were you born’ ?
It then goes through all ones childhood asking about family & early friends,school, hobbies,regrets,how one felt on finding out about her the first pregnancy/child, what advice would I like to give her,what one likes/dislikes etc.

To be honest I’m finding it a very emotional experience & I’m not really sure why.
The last question is ‘what would you like as your epitaph’?
Maybe that’s why, because whatever I write maybe it will not be believed or will go down to future generations & they will interpret it in a different way, not the way it’s written, will they read things between the lines ?
Maybe I should just bin it ?
