My previous post contains a list of things my Dad taught me. Not wanting to leave my Mum out, here are some of the things she taught me. Again it’s off the top of my head and in no particular order:

  • how to drive
  • the art of giving a good hug
  • to appreciate the simple things in life
  • how to make custard
  • the right cup to drink tea from
  • to enjoy singing
  • how to iron a shirt
  • to have the courage to try new things
  • how to make Christmas dinner
  • to keep going

This is day five of my #100DaysToOffload challenge. Want to get involved? Find out more at
