Didn't go to the pictures, dances until 18 and met boyfriend. Remembers dances in Te Awamutu and Otorohanga, " No such thing as sleeping in, in those days." Believes she had a good teenage life once she left home. At home the only place the family went to was church, strict observance of the Sabbath. Religion was impacted on her, difficult to make transition from home to "real world". Not allowed to visit friend's houses while at home or have them visit. Enjoyed the freedom of the hospital hostel. Went to the pictures with siblings, saw mainly cowboy films with brothers. Saw "Hop-Along Cassidy", Gene Autrey. Brought records from Mr Gittos, corner of Ward and Victoria Streets.
