In past through the years I had reached part six which finished around the date of my marriage to Susan Emms. At this time we lived in a brand new house in Shottery, Stratford upon Avon. Really I ought to also mention that my mum (Eileen) remarried when I was about 9 or 10 years old to James C Brown who was quite a bit younger than her.He was a well educated Doctors son who practised in Stratford, James served in the forces in the Malaya campaign. He was also a very accomplished athelete running mostly sprints with the Coventry Godiva Harriers and represented Warwickshire on a number of occasions, later he was forced through illness, to give up serious competitive events due to ill health with lung problems, but when he left the forces, he joined what was then BOAC airlines as a senior air steward,travelling all over the world.Their marriage did'nt last many years I'm not exactly sure how long, probably 4 to 6 years then they separated although they were never actually divorced as mum was killed a few years later. Soon James moved away to the Daventry area where he met a lovely lady (Jean) with whom he's stayed ever since. We will now get to the births and early years of my two children Pamela born 1965 and Roy born 1966. Pam was a brilliant baby she slept through the night almost as soon as we brought her home from the Maternity unit. Roy on the other hand was always completely different, he woke every 4-5 hours up until he was about 14-15 months old. As they grew up they were very close and we were very lucky in that we had a live in baby sitter in my Grandfather. More of this in part 8.
Joke of the day.
A young female staff nurse was showing some newly trained nurses the mens wings of the hospital,"the final ward will be the most hazardus for you" she said to them, One of the trainies asked "why is that"Well" says the staff nurse "these men in here are nearly better".
