What a great memory, thanks for sharing! The fact you didn’t just blow it on any number of tempting things (a hard task when you are a poor student!) is a real testament to the trust she put in you by giving you that money. I’m also glad you never needed it for anything more sinister.

Like what you read? Give Amy Isobel a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
