Hi Angela xx

My first job was picking blackcurrants. I wanted a pair of Dr Scholl originals. I was eleven years old. I got up at dawn during the summer holiday and went with adults who also picked fruit in the summer and worked until I had enough money to buy a pair.

My father would not let me buy them in the end because he said I needed sensible shoes. I can't remember what I did with the money now.

I now own a pair of pink Dr Scholls! My mother bought them for me five years ago.

When I was nine years old, I picked lots and lots of wild violets, painted a tray purple, and walked around my home town trying to sell them to people. I ended up giving them away lol.

This is the first time in my life I have not had to work. Since my first real job, in a hair dressers, I have had a million and one other jobs. From chicken farming to dental nurse, working with deaf children and people with dementia to being a private secretary and owning my own restaurant.

Now all I do with my time is write.

Hope you are safe and well x

Linda Heywood

Hi Linda:

Yes, I am safe - thanks for caring...

I am working on my 2nd week of staying with his sister, we do talk but I am not in the house with him. He is truly sorry, but until he is READY to deal with his issues - I have to take care of ME. I am suppose to stop by and see the dogs today while he is at work, do miss them SO MUCH. I don't have a key as I gave it back to him and have not asked back for it. One of his grown sons is visiting from New York, so I can get access.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing - does my heart GOOD when I see some "activity" in this forum. There are so many unemployed folks out there, I am hoping that they will find this forum and come home wink like I did.

Nothing like my Bella Family!!!!

Hugs to everyone,
