After the heartache of losing her mother to a protracted battle with cancer, Claire had some difficult choices to make. What would be the wisest way to spend her inheritance? She was torn in two – should she pay off all her debts and carry on with life or honour her mother by doing something they had both dreamed of for years?
A university has invited me to address their history department. I think they did so because I am the only fossil – an ex-student – they could find. Initially I thought it would be fun to tell the students about what it was like studying at that institution during the 1970s (the good old days?) but on reflection I realised it is all a bit embarrassing!
