I was born in Manchester England and at the age of three
moved to Blackpool where I lived until we came to Australia in 1967.
I have already told you in the first page how old I am
and where I came from etc.Perhaps a little of my history will help you to know me.
As you can probably see I am very fond of the purple
shades and always have been.
As a child we lived in a large house with fourteen bedrooms
and it had a ballroom which my Dad rented out to a dancing teacher.I learned to dance from the age of three and had many lovely
experiences.Dad was a musician who had bands at various venues and we had almost every instrument available in the music room.I
had three Brothers and a Sister and had a very happy childhood.
When I was eleven years old my Dad was offered a job
managing a chain of hotels in Durban South Africa as the Musical Director.He decided it would be a great adventure to Trek
overland so he bought a huge old army truck and spent months doing it up.I will post a picure as soon as I get it uploaded.
Anyway, it never happened.Some of the family were coming
with us including an Aunt & Uncle and their two young children, my paternal Grandparents,and another couple who
were close friends.The guy played in Dad's band.We waited so long for visas to come through that the others all dropped out
one by one which left Dad as the only grown male which would have been too hazardous so he gave up.
It was a great adventure while it lasted but it cost
so much and Dad lost heavily on it and we never got to South Africa.
I had been learning to play piano before that venture
and never got back to it but I carried on dancing and when I left school I became a student teacher.
I then went into a travelling show and travelled around
the north of England and the Midlands.
Before I left I met Alan so after only one tour as professional
dancer I gave it up and stayed in Blackpool..
We were married eighteen months later in 1957 and he
went into the Air Force six weeks after that to do his National Service.Seventeen months later our first Son was born despite
us saying we wouldn't start out family until Alan came out of the Air Force. By 1964 we had all four children and in 1967
came out to Western Australia which was the best decision we ever made.
Three years later my Sister and her new Husband joined
us and five years later my parents and three Brothers and a Sister-in-law also joined us. During that five years I had a miscarriage
and lost our only Aussie child.
However, I now have eight Grandchildren who are all Aussies.
