About this memory
"I wanted to be a shorthand typist. I was supposed to go to Leith Academy. But oh no, not Irene! Nearest school to my house was DK. Mum said that you're definitely not going there. My dad said that if that's what you want to be, then you go ahead and try it. We went to the school, and my mum said that you're definitely not coming here. But I went, and I had the time of my life."
