In my Mum’s childhood she had olden time computers

How is your childhood different to your Mum’s? 

In my childhood the weather is freezing but in my Mum’s childhood the weather was brain-stoppingly hot because she lived in Turkey and I live in London. I wear normal clothes but my Mum wore Turkish trousers. Also in my Mum’s childhood she learned how to knit and weave a carpet, and in my childhood I have learned how to knit dish cloths and blankets. It is so fun to do knitting.

In the olden times my grandma taught my mum how to knit and in modern times my Mum taught me how to knit, so our childhoods were the same in that way. I only look after a cuddly and frightened rabbit and a noisy bird, but my Mum looked after cows, chickens, donkeys, and those kinds of animals. In my childhood, we don’t grow trees but in my Mum’s childhood they grew plants (salad, cucumber, tomatoes) and trees that had mouth-watering fruit. While we are talking about fruits, you should go to a Turkish supermarket and try new fruits like a nar. This fruit looks like a big raspberry, tastes like a cherry and is delicious and very sweet.

In my Mum’s childhood she had olden time computers but I have rich electronic things such as a tablet. In my Mum’s childhood they didn’t have any toys. They only played with rocks and dirt, but I play with my tablet. I am not sure if my Mum went to school when she was a child, but I definitely go to school and I am there for 6 hours and 30 minutes every day. In my childhood there are more shops near my house than in my Mum’s childhood. I like my childhood because I love the cold weather and there are more jobs for me to join. Also I don’t want to leave my friends. 

Now I am going to tell a little joke: 

‘Knock knock’

‘Who’s there?’


‘Olden who?’

‘Olden times!’
