|"That's when life really started to live" : move from country to town late 1930s - early 1940s|
Worked at Horsham Downs milking and general farm duties, " first break away from home." Not unusual to be a woman farmhand. "Came back into town and that's when life really started to live." Went to work at Waikato Hospital aged 17, personal maid of Matron Nancy. Made a lot of friends and " thoroughly enjoyed it."
