Default Challenge No. 5 - ALL ABOUT ME October 2012

Welcome to a new, occasional All About Me challenge from the Cheery-Os,
and this month it’s my turn. Despite its name, I’m actually going to talk about
my grandmother – bear with me, there’s a bit of back-story to this challenge… My
grandmother came to live in Britain in her mid 50s having lived a rather privileged
life in India and the standing joke was that she reputedly could not even boil an egg
or make toast. And yet, she survived for over 35 years, so she must have cooked
something. But what? I realised I have absolutely no idea what my grandmother
cooked, what they ate, how they lived on a daily basis, what were the minutiae of
my grandparents lives? I never asked and my father didn’t seem to notice. All of
which lead me to think what small details my grandchildren might want to
know about me? Little things, everyday things, like what we eat or read
or watch – things we might think insignificant today, but might be an intriguing
part of our social history to those that come after us.

So, lets start at the beginning, lets record our morning routines; what do you
eat & drink? What time do you get up? Why then? Does your routine change
according to the day? Who do you speak with? What do you like/dislike about
your routine? Are you a morning person or the proverbial bear with a sore head?
How does your routine differ today from when you were a child/had small kids/last
year/yesterday?

There are many ways you could tackle this challenge – you could write a list, use
time as your bullet points, write in prose, fill the entire page with your words,
write it in verse. The choice is yours, but it is important that you write
about YOU - not your children, not your dogs - but you, what you do,
what you feel, what you think.

I did this writing exercise back in June and re-reading my words now I realise
that my entire routine has changed significantly because my daughter has
moved schools. Strange that an alteration to someone else’s daily life has altered
mine considerably, so I view this as total justification for repeating this challenge
to myself. Come and join me…
