Tell me mur about urself-for Haysmart and all others who are curious to know more

17 Sep

I was born in Australia 54 years ago ,the eldest of 8 children and possibly the loudest, bossiest and strangest. I was a child who loved communicating and adored reading from a very young age.Mum tells me I had a difficult life and perhaps she was right but upbringing plays a huge role in forming our characters but i do not believe it justifies bad behaviour. Certainly I was punished  a lot when young, in particular for looking around in church.I was simply admiring the statues  and the architecture of the best building in the area but this was perceived as a very bad action.Later I learnt to argue and shout and really   must have been difficult to live with.However, this ability stood me in good stead in later years in situations where I had to stand up for myself against unfair accusations and very nasty people.

During my  primary school years I enjoyed academic success and even then I found myself sat next to boys with learning di fficulties or behaviour problems so I guess ny teaching career started back then even though i told everyone i wanted to be a journalist.This was not approved of at home even though the newspaper and the news on the radio were the centre of family life.

We did not have a tv when I was young.Nor did  we have a telephone.My parents did not see the need for them We did not have a lot but we had enough and while i didn’t always like the clothes the neighbours passed on to us ,it did give me  a determination to work and get my own money as soon as possible .

 Sadly this opportunity is not available to teenagers today and iI am glad iI am not trying to start a career nowadays
