I was raised in Tilbury for the first four years of my life along with my sister in Tilbury then we moved to Grays. This was back in the 1960's when life was much simpler.

As a child I expected to grow up, get married, and be a stay at home mother like my mum was. My friends parents were the same in that respect that their dads worked and their mothers stayed at home.

My Mum chose to go to work part time when I was about ten or eleven years old. She worked in a sub post office in the local newsagent. I liked that and would go in and se her on the ways home from school when she worked in the afternoons.

Although I had been abroad one for a holiday to Italy when I was three years old which I just about remember our holidays had been in the UK. This included going to stay with my Nanna in Wales and going to stay with my other grandpants. After my Mum started working we started having holidays abroad. That I really enjoyed including the flights. We had been raised to try different types of food so that also made our holiday eating the traditional meals.
