Now to this week's challenge set by Kathi - Nostalgia - Information or facts about ourselves,so here are some facts
- Born in Dewsbury, Yorkshire at the end of the war in September 1945..My father was in the RAF and stationed in Scotland and during the war my mother had gone back to her home town Morley and was living with her parents and working as a secretary. After my birth and my father was demobbed they brought me back to Hastings where they had been living and my father had been teaching and he returned to his school again. Every holiday we went back to Yorkshire and as I grew up my grandparents and their friends were fascinated with my lack of any accent and used to say I talked like the Queen LOL!!
- I failed my 11+ but thanks to my father being a teacher he managed to get me into the local grammar school...I don't know how but he did! There I struggled, found maths difficult so didn't take 0 level but just RSA which was only arithmetic. Today I would not be able to go on to Teacher's training college but I did managed to go in 1963 aged 17 and two weeks later had my 18th birthday!
Tomorrow I will finish telling you some more facts!
