These are photo's of my Lovely Dad and My Beautiful Mom. I never saw them when they were young as my Mom had 10 children and I was the youngest consquently I can only remember them in their fifties. They were such hardworking people and we always had clean clothes and enough to eat. I remember my Dad being good fun but a bit strict and my Mom not quite so strict but if you disobeyed her she soon let you know, it's hard to umagine them being this young. I remember christmas's well and there was always a stocking at the end of the bed with and Orange and some nuts, a few
big old pennies to save or spend, a sugar mouse nothing like todays kids get but we loved it, and then downstairs Santa always left us a pillowcase full of goodies like books and puzzles, paints, games and usually a torch. We always had something new to wear on christmas day and my older brothers and sisters who were then married always came to christmas tea, what a noisy lot we were, we were always ready for bed when the time came. These are precious memories and when our kids were growing up we always tried to make christmas a magic time starting with the carol service at the local church which was always a favourite of mine there is nothing like a good rousing carol to make you feel christmassy and thankful. Have you all got good memories of christmas?
