I've sat in my garden enjoying my flowers 'wool gathering' just thinking and dreaming. A lot of the flowers and plants are from seed or cuttings, but some have come with me across the years from other gardens and I love it.I dream 'what ifs'; would my life have been very different if my mother had lived? I hope so, my childhood was pretty miserable, but I loved school, especially in my senior school, where because my aunt paid for me, I was a boarder.. I laugh thinking about it, because I read the Girls Friend comic where the girls were in a boarding school. Very very middle class but I wasn't at all, very far from it.
My grandmother ran a B&B and there were occasions when all the bedrooms were let out to the visitors and my aunty and I slept on camp beds in the shed, which leaked!! So we had rubber mats, (no plastic in 1940s) over us and umbrellas!!
But it was the life I knew and for all its difficulties, I'm here now and living the rewards of that education.
I've enjoyed my 'wool gathering,' do you day dream?
