Text

Shortly after the war ended,my mum and dad moved the family to a brand new prefab bungalow complete with hot and cold running water,a bathroom and even a fridge. I thought I was a princess as for the first time,I had the luxury of a bedroom all to myself,where I was free to escape from the family and read my books and dream my childish dreams. I attended local school where I made many friends,some of which I still see to this day. I was in the school choir,this led me to joining a well known choir called the Ulster Girls Choir which travelled all round the UK doing concerts for charities.
