Memory Box

We where chatting over dinner about things you keep and memory’s, I dug my old memory box and had a fun evening going through old letters and post cards, I found my grandads old Ruhla Wrist Watch which I used to wear all the time right through my school years, have probably not worn much since I left school, I used to keep it on my bed side table but working in a garage and then mobile phones I’ve never really wore it again


If I remember rightly the watch came form my mum’s dad and the strap from my dad,it was a 21st birthday present off the office girls in the garage he worked in, not worn it in over 20 years, wound it up it still seems to keep good time and feels like it’s never been off my wrist, and the distinctive ticking makes me feel very nostalgic

    I love stories like this. I have my Grandfather’s wedding ring and I wear it on a chain around my neck with a few other special things

      It’s funny the things we keep, I have old cinema and theatre tickets and news paper cuttings, old post cards and letters, we don’t seem to have these things any more everything is digital,
      I used to wear my grandfather’s watch all the time and after I started working it was always wound up and on my bed side table, it was the first thing I would hear when I woke up and it was funny waking up this morning to that old familiar tick 🙂
