Work at 21
Your Story: My Gran Doreen Scott in 1961

My favourite author was Jane Austin because her books are exciting and adventurous.I celebrated christmas by having a party at home with my family and a night out at the cinema for my birthday.I spent my holidays camping in the lake district and if I was lucky a holiday in Scotland. Last of all I had a favourite outfit which was a long black taffeder skirt trimmed in lemon with a lemon blouse to match. The best present I ever received was a glass dome clock which I got off my husbandwhen he was in the army.I can describe my house it was a brick fronted house in moorsley.I loved Elvis Presley but the Beatles were the most popular but the best song i thought was Bill Haley and the comets rock around the clock. This is a report of my life when I was 21, which was the favourite time of my life.
