My Parting Gift
In December I left my sales job after 12 years selling greetings cards to shops in the South East of England. I loved what I did but then I started writing.
Now I am in a position to write full-time and was faced with the daunting prospect of handing in my resignation.
I found it so hard because my colleagues were so much more than that. We were a family and it was hard to say goodbye to that.
So, I decided to write a play with them in it. I tried to include them all, highlighting their characteristics as a reminder of the happy times.
This is the first play I have ever written and probably the last. It was my parting gift to a fabulous group of people whom I will always remember fondly.
I hope you enjoy my little story even though it won't mean anything to you. I have exaggerated the situation - of course - but they are based on fact.
I will miss them all even though they are unlikely to ever speak to me again after they read it!
Just for the fun of it.
For the first time ever the whole world is in lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It's spring 2020 and normal life as we know it has stopped.
I thought it would be fun to ease the boredom a little and see what life is like through the eyes of my latest character from Aunt Daisy's Letter.
