A (Very Young) Machinist's Wife


This is me, sporting one of mam's spaz-cuts, wearing a woolly ex-jumble sale frock (mam also made a lot of cotton frocks for me, 'cos I would change each lunch time.  Don't ask. Just one of those things...).  The school photo was probably taken after I'd had my morning bottle of milk, (hence the ample tummy) - gratis and courtesy of Southgate Infants School, Alvaston, Derby England.  Circa 1965.

I love photos! I love the fact you can imagine a whole exsistance by looking at them. That little kid, staring out, her whole life ahead of her, and all the stuff that happens... who'd have ever thought it!?...

Well, at least she used a bowl and not a pie plate.

My mother was a Beautician, I looked like a frightened poodle at that age.
