about the author
I was born in the East End of London in an area that was still covered by wartime debris, where we lived in an old house supported by three wooden buttresses. It was small and very cold in winter, heated by a coal fire and a paraffin stove where Mum worked endlessly shopping, cooking and cleaning everything manually.
What a change to the life we live now surrounded with technology at our fingertips, yet, personally I feel I have been privileged to have experienced that time, to have had a foot in each camp, be it modern or out dated, because even though push button A/B telephones and black and white TV doesn’t sound terribly interesting to the young, the community and determination of the people of those days continually pull so many of my emotional cords.
Too quick to judge by Maria Adams on 29 June 2017
Family life is not always easy. To remain friends and to work at trying to to be there for each other is hard but worth the effort.
All to often there is rivalry between siblings; quick judgements are made on what we think we see and hear. The story that goes on between couples behind closed doors is often very different from the facade that we see. We can so easily judge using our own personal feelings and thoughts. In truth we cannot truly understand the way others think and feel. It is so so easy to get it wrong. Act out of character just once and the walls come tumbling down around us. It is heartbreaking and takes great strength to forgive; to admit that we were wrong and rebuild with new knowledge and understanding.
