Activity 20.4

Mum – Childminder, 2 sisters and a brother, born in 60’s in Manchester.

The day starts early during the week, the first one arrives at seven thirty. I have to get my own kids up before the pick-up run and school drop off. My kids have a much different up bringing to my own, two sisters and a brother to contend with, to be seen and heard – although I was daddy’s little girl. Being born the youngest gave me that advantage, a cuddle was always waiting for me at the end of the day. The sixty’s and seventy’s made Mum the boss of the house with dad coming home from the mines filthy. They could often be heard arguing late at night, mum smoking and dad with a tipple. Manchester was a cloud of smog back then, although it hasn’t particularly changed much.
