Throwback Thursday #36 – Gone But Not Forgotten

Its Thursday again and time for Lauren and Maggie’s Throwback Thursday. This week Lauren has chosen Things I don’t miss.

I don’t miss being cold most of the time! We lived in a mid terrace council house. No central heating, there were two fire places, one the living room and one in front room. The one in the living room also had a back boiler and heated the water. In the winter our bedrooms would be so cold that there would be ice on the inside of the metal window frames. We had to wipe them dry when the ice melted. We all learned to be proficient at getting dressed and undressed in bed!

I dont miss being teased by my brother’s. I don’t miss seeing my sisters and brothers going out when I was not old enough to . I don’t miss being the youngest of a large family by eight years and feeling like an only child most of the time.

I don’t miss school I won’t go into that I have tackled that before.

I dont miss waiting for the bus! Or two arriving together! I don’t miss freezing, getting wet, or frying at the bus stop!

l don’t miss Ballet and Tap lessons I was a fairy elephant!

I don’t miss not being able to have new clothes or shoes.

I don’t miss feeling , insecure or frightened .

I dont miss taking the weekly wash to the launderette, sometimes my eldest brother would help me carry the laundry bags, it was quite a long walk. It was a boring couple of hours even with a book and dark in winter. If my brother came he’d leave me at the launderette and go to the pub to meet his friends while I stayed with the washing. He would come back when it was all ready and help me home with it .

Gosh I think I will stop there before I bore you all to sleep!
