I believe life is for living, no matter if you are poor or rich!
As a child my mother was a single parent and therefore we did not have much! No takeaways, sweets, chips, movies, holidays etc! Looking back I don’t think I was poor, I was never fat, always healthy, because I ate good healthy fresh vegetables and fruit and walked everywhere I needed to be! I always had money for my crafts, birthday and Christmas present needs, because I worked at the local hairdresser sweeping and washing hair on Saturday morning and during my school holidays. I never felt poor! I had food in my tummy, a roof over my head, a warm clean bed to sleep in, clean clothes to wear and I felt safe! Needless to say our home didn’t look like a magazine page! Nothing matched, but it was clean. Mom was a clean-a-holic, if that can be a word!
So many of you can’t believe that I have adult sons! Well I married very young at the age of 18! As you have gathered it must have been a shot gun wedding! Hehe! Best thing I ever did! My life is so different now, but also still the same!
I think this is why I love so many different colours, old and new things! I would like to share a few glimpses of my home!
To life and living!
PS As you read this I will be landing in New York to meet my new daughter! I will keep you posted!
