Paper Mum!

January 2021

About this memory

My son injured himself sledging in the post-Christmas snow, so I took over his Bruntsfield paper round - and loved it! It got me up and out early, with purpose and was my lockdown exercise whilst the gyms were closed. I realised what a community life-line a paperboy, girl or mum is - chatting to the often elderly and isolated customers and helping them out with messages and so on. I made it to the front page of The Scotsman and the Edinburgh Evening News!
