My grandmother is 65 and has done a lot of things in her life. She was born in the country and lived on a small farm until she was sixteen. She has been in many different places, but she always says the farm was the best place of all. She didn’t finish school, because she started working when she was fifteen. She has worked many different jobs in her life — she was a children’s nurse, a dressmaker and a shop assistant among other things. She worked in a very expensive shop in London for several years. She stopped working after she got married. She had five children and she looked after the house. Grandma loves new things. She has just bought a laptop, but she hasn’t learnt how to send emails yet. I’m going to her house to help her now.
