Going out to work was a great excitement for me. I was a housewife in most of my early part of life, looking after children and doing household chores. When the kids grew up and started the Grammar School, then I got my freedom, had my own car and enjoyed my working life thoroughly. There were no computers and everything was done in a very different and hard way. Telephones and typewriters were the only modern technology. When the computers came to Northern Ireland probably early eighties, we were sent for training and at the beginning it was hard to start from the beginning.The most memorable part of my working life is 'Friendship_ﾋﾝ. I made various friends and still now I keep in touch with them and exchange cards and gifts and keep everything up to date. We all have gown older and talk about our children and grandchildren.
