No 62 May 18
I had 4 children in 4 years,
And life was very tough,
The hours that there were each day,
Just didn’t seem enough.
I didn’t get out very much,
My social life had gone,
And sleep was hard to come by,
In fact it felt like none.
At the end of our road was a chapel,
They started a Young Wives Group,
It was every other Tuesday,
A little break from all my troup.
One of the young wives I met there,
Became my best friend and helped me all along,
We are best friends still today,
And now she’s 91.
There was a carol service,
The young wives helped to run,
As usual I was rushing round,
My baking I had done.
It was my birthday on that day,
No time for parties then,
This would be my party,
And it was 10 am.
Eunice had saved me a seat,
By then I was in bits,
She said what have you got for your birthday,
“Well if you must know I’ve got nits”.
