Entertainment [cont]

Recalls crew cuts, bodgies and widgies. Radio more important as a youngster,

"It was sort of important in those days to know which tune was the most popular song. You'd buy the little book so you could learn all the words"

Enjoyed going to the library, had comics and `The Weekly News'. Played cards and board games. Never smoked, not into drinking,

"A lot of the girls did smoke at Training College cos it was, sort of, a bit like the `in thing', you were sort of grown up and that if you smoked"
