Eleanor bought me this book for Christmas, Dear Mum, From You To Me.
The idea behind this little book that Eleanor has given to me is that I jot down pieces of information and memories, adding photos along the way, then give it back to Eleanor. She'll then have a book containing so much information about my life, my memories and my thoughts.
There's questions on each page to promt you, everything from Tell me about the time and place you were born, to What was the first piece of music you bought? right through to What would you like your epitaph to say?
Genealogy is one of my hobbies, I've researched all the branches of my family tree, and Mick's too. I know how important little snippets of information are, how lovely memories can be and how easily they're lost in time. I hope that by completing this book, Eleanor will know a bit more about me, and it's something that she'll be able to pass on to her children too.
