My timeline has thrown up some photos from Ormskirk. They are from 100 years ago. I was born 50 years ago, so it can't have been too different back then.
I don't think it suited my mother one bit. She is a Sloane Square sort of person.
Women commented on the little bald patch at the back of my baby head. I must have liked sleeping even then! She must have been so annoyed at any criticism of her perfect first production. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall and see those snippets of interaction.
