What did you want to be when you were grown up ?
For some reason ? I always wanted to be a Secretary. Thankfully I did become a secretary after going to a Secretarial College. I was a secretary in lots of different fields, shipping, accountancy, financial and eventually Law, although I took this further.
Treasure chest: you have a small chest and you’re going to place things in it that symbolise who you are, important milestones, etc. so that someone years after you’re gone will look at it and see the essence of you. For example, you might place a stethoscope if you’re a doctor or medical student, a Bible if your faith is important to you, etc. Which five items would you choose and why? No photographs (though you could use a camera if you're a photographer)...just symbolic items.
Erm ... well someone else suggested their computer hard drive, and I really have to agree with that. My whole life revolves around my computer. Photographs, documents, my friends, contacts etc.etc. I have met numerous friends via the internet, many of them will be true lifelong friends. My whole life is on one weeny hard drive ... bizarre eh ?!!
Secondly, I would put in Aaron's Birth Certificate. My life changed completely when I gave birth. From being a woman who worked hard and played hard, I became (and still am) a doting mother. I still wake up every morning and thank god that I am a mother to the most adorable son in the world.
Thirdly, I'd put in my wedding ring. Not in a million years did I ever think i'd get married. I never imagined there was anyone who could cope with me ! Thankfully though, I met and married Stewart at the grand age of 41, because at last, I felt I was ready to commit.
Fourthly, I'd put in the gold chain and locket from my 30th Birthday which represents my mum and dad. Mum wanted me to have a gold watch, Dad wanted me to have a locket. Hey, I struck lucky and got both !! Sadly, over the years I've lost the gold watch :(, but I do still have the locket and chain.
Fifthly, I'd put in a smiley badge. Hopefully that would represent me. I always try to find the good in people, and try to make the best out of a bad situation. I hope it would show that a smile costs nothing - a smile given freely could make the day of a lonely stranger.
