I was reading my old diary which I do from time to time just to remember.
I got my diary on my birthday when I was 10 years old from my Great Aunt Ester. I will always be grateful for this special gift and the memories it gives me every time I read it.
I highly recommend that every child be given a diary or notebook to save thoughts and life events in. They will be so happy to have these when they get older.
These are my diary entries from October 20 to 26, 1969. I had just turned 10 years old. I will add more from time to time.
A few explanations.
*Funny to check the spelling and what was important to a 10 year old girl.
*Baby Ronnie and Jill are my cousins.
*Maw is my grandmother. I was living with my grandparents during this time.
*My notebook was so cool. It had a big florescent green flower on it. I was styling!
*I usually went to my parents home on the weekends and when there was no school.
*Kelly and Dougie were my Fernway (Cranberry) neighbors. I loved to spy and make up stories and mysteries.
