Just sitting musing over old photos and such and started to go back over the years in my mind.
At what age and year were you when something happened that is still imprinted on your memory.
Mine was way back in 1935 when I was ordered by a so called Sister-of Mercy to wash the dormitory floor.
I was just around 5 years of age then and in the home because of poverty and through an illness when I was a baby and my parents could not afford the hospital fees.
I remember missing some water when mopping the floor because I had my good eye covered up with a patch to help the lazy one work.
Unfortunately a Nun was watching everything going off and she came to me with a large stick and belted me twice across the back telling me to do it properly. I can also remember her saying if I cried I would be put in the cupboard.
I was overjoyed when my family finally got me back and I never had to go back to that rotten place.
