If I stick around, this will be my story.

It will unfold a bit at a time. The more comfortable I feel the more I will post.

I just love sharing stories. bounce

My mum was 15 when she met my dad at the Glasgow Fair Carnival. He was five years older than her. They were married the following year, she was only 16 and he was 21. I don’t know how she managed it because my grandparents had disowned her so she didn’t have their permission.

Anyway…. I was born the following January - a Capricorn born on the cusp of Aquarius. Any astrologers in the room?

...... 18 months later my sister was born.

My dad, a Glasgow gang member, spent most of his life in and out of prison - when he wasn't beating us up, fighting with the neighbours, or smashing the house up.

When he was 41, he committed suicide.


You sure you want to hear this?

I married five months later. I married a paratrooper. A year later I had my first son. Two years later I had my second son. The following year my hubby was posted to Northern Ireland for three months and he got shot and was flown home just in time for Christmas. What some guys will do to get home for Christmas lol. Then we were posted to Berlin for two years where I had my daughter. I think that was the best two years of my life. When that posting was up we were posted to Northern Ireland for two years. My youngest sister came to live with us. We were only there two month when hubby was involved in a serious bombing that killed eighteen soldiers. We were all flown home. He spent almost a year in an army rehabilitation centre recovering from his injures.

He got compensation. We were rich! We sent the boys to boarding school and bought a big house and a new car. He didn’t drive I did. Things weren’t all sweetness and light. I missed the boys so much, and hubby was never the same after his injuries - very moody and very demanding. It was a struggle. I went back to work just to get some time on my own. He still worked but he was on light duties and home a lot. I tried to talk to him, asked him to get help but he refused to see that anything was wrong. I watched as my life went down the toilet….
