I think with everything that is going on in our world at the moment, so many businesses deserve the right to their few hours of fame. However, let’s spare a thought for the corner shops just like in the war they were there helping families try to get as near a normal life as possible.
I am growing older day by day
Hair that was brown is now so Grey
I was full of energy wild and free
Now I am so tired, what happened to me
My dad was a Coal Miner, a Coal Miner at Bold
Coal dust killed him off long before he got old
He had been down the pit from 14 years old
My love is a puzzel, that is in pieces, all broke
I chased and ran after a difficult, unloving bloke
He never wanted me there by his side not at all
Down in the valley beneath the mist
An angry minor clenched his fist
Dam you, dam you, dam you he cried
He told his friend how his two sons had died
How often do we take for granted the comfort things we have in 2020? I remember my childhood and visiting my aunty and uncles with My Mam. Memories Also of living with my granddad in an old two bedroom terraced house. The worse memory being the outside toilet. (The loo to the younger readers) Some places we would visit, mum would tell me beforehand don't ask to go to the Toilet, it's bloody filthy in there, you will catch something.
