Happy Birthday Dear Daughter.

Its 5.20am ,what a crazy time to be up ,doing a journal entry!!Maurice has to start at 6.am today so since Im awake ..............I need to get up at 6am myself its best I dont go off to sleep again !!so here I am ,what better way to spend the time between now and getting ready for work ,the last one for a while I think.Shift I mean not journal! 

What was I doing forty two years ago?,I cant remember the exact time I started,but my two little boys were being taken to my Mother,I was in labour with our third child ,I was taken into the maternity home,seven miles away,Mick had come with me in the ambulance,seen me settled in ,and off he went ,In the those days men werent allowed to be around ,this was a woman thing!In due course Igave birth to a beautiful little girl, wow ,how wonderful I thought I only had boys!! Mick came in later ,and Ican remember his face to this day as he gazed at his little girl.Back at my Mothers house they were all anxiously,they,my Mum Dad brother and sister waiting until my Mum thought it time to ring up the maternity home,when she thought the time was right my little sister Jean,then about fourteen,was sent off to the phone box,clutching her pennies for the phone,she asked if her sister had ,had her baby and was told yes a little girl,Jean ran all the way home,and breathlessly announced shes had the baby,what was it ,she was asked, a little girl I think,you think !!My mother made her go back to the phone box to check,Poor Jean .We called her Sharon Jayne.

After work today Im going to do a detour and go to see my lovely girl on her 42nd birthday,she has four children of her own now and is a landlady of a pub,Her three boys have all left home Iain,twenty two Stuart twenty and engaged to Vicky and Paul eighteen,Charlotte ,my only Grandaughter is eleven.

It is now six oclock my alarm clock,is ringing its little head off ,hah beat you ,So I will get ready for my day,all those busses!!ugh and its raining!and go and see my friends at the court I retired from ,they have a coffee morning planned so it should be nice, if the weather doesnt put them off !!Maurice is picking me up from Sharons.So on that happy note I will say bye everyone have a good day                 Jan xx

Hi Jan, lovely early entry today brought back such happy memories,I think going to the phone box I had so wished it to be a baby girl that I wasn't at all sure they had said so.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHARON.  Your children( my neices and nephews)will always be special to me.Glad you are now having a break from work after all you had retired,!! give you chance to get your breath back, and enjoy your many hobbies.Hope you enjoyed the coffee morning.       Love Jeanxx

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHARON.  It will be our girls birthday in a couple of weeks.  Shame the men were not encouraged to take any part in it in those days, it is all so different now.
