Skittles started a meme some time ago called Heads or Tails and this week we can select any previous theme to write about so I chose Watch.
One of the few things that I have that belonged to my mother is her watch. It must be about 80 years old now. Originally it had a velvet strap but I have never been able to replace it.
Amazingly the watch still works. I almost never wear it and it just sits in my jewelery case year after year. The only other things I have of my mother is her engagement ring and a picture taken just before her death with me in my new school uniform ready to attend kindergarten.
