|Second term examination of English|
Level : 4AM. Time: 1.30 hour. Date:
My grandmother is more than ninety years old which makes her the oldest person in the whole family. Since her pilgrimage to Mecca in 1980, every body has been calling her “El Hadja”. Despite her old age, her memory is still fresh. She always tells us that many things used to be different when she was young.
My grandma used to begin her day very early. She used to pray “El Sobh” at 3 o’clock in summer time while every body else was still in beds. There didn’t use to be a baker’s in the country where she lived, so my grandma baked bread “kesra” which was most of the time made of wheat or barley. Before sunrise, she was already busy at work. She used to do all the housework by herself. She used to make clothes for the children such as woolly hats, jumpers and “burnouses” for the adults. My grandma used to raise some chicken (for their eggs) and sheep (for milk and meat). She also used to help the males to grow vegetables.
When a member of the family was ill, she used to show him which herbs to use. They collected them from a near forest. It was very effective method.
