One incident of many: A little boy, he’d done something. It can’t have been very wrong. They sent him out to get a wooden spoon which is how they punished you, with a wooden spoon. He bought a small one. They sent him back to get a bigger one. The nastiness of it. So stupid!
I just took everything that was thrown at me & there was quite a lot! You accepted it & relied on your fellow sufferers for friendship etc. There was nothing outside us. By age 12 I’d never heard of the Queen or King or anything like that.
