What could you not bear to live with­out?

Read­ers share their spe­cial trea­sures

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Mur­ray Spooner

Last week we re­ported a Ruther­glen woman’s shock when she thought she had lost her en­gage­ment ring over 20 years ago only to find it star­ing her right in the face ear­lier this month.

Shirley McAleer, 59, put her trea­sured pos­ses­sion down two decades ago and could not find it, as­sum­ing it had been ti­died up in her son’s toy box.

But on March 21 she looked up to see it sit­ting in her display cabi­net.

We all have some­thing that we could not bear to lose so we de­cided to ask the peo­ple of Burn­side for their thoughts.

Lisa Thom­son, who re­cently hurt her back, said she could not live with­out her loved ones. She said: “I don’t have any­thing ma­te­rial that I would miss but my fam­ily, friends and my dog I would. Their sup­port has been amaz­ing.”

Ruther­glen’s Andy Cowan on the other hand said he could not go with­out his favourite mid­day snack. “Tea bags and a choco­late bis­cuit,” he said. “I just could not live with­out them.”

Martin Hosie from Cam­bus­lang also named a treat as some­thing that he couldn’t bare to lose.

He said: “Dough­nuts! I’m ad­dicted to the things. It’s those jam filled ones that you get in su­per­mar­kets.”

Andrea Marti­nescu, who re­cently be­came a mum for the first time, added: “I miss my free time at the mo­ment. I’ll look for­ward to have some of it back when the baby is a lit­tle older
