What could you not bear to live without?
Readers share their special treasures
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
