When I was a young teenager I always had a scrap book to write any nice sentences, which I liked from my reading, in books and magazines. When I moved to Algeria I had to leave them behind. Today, when I was tidying some books and magazines, I found some three scrap books I created in Algeria (I now live in the UK). Here are some photos of some pages. Sorry to readers who can’t read Arabic. The writing is lyrics from an Iraqi song, advice for the housework and patterns in knitting and crochet.
