How weird to find myself at about six looking out at me from my computer screen! I can't have been at St Michael's for much longer after this was taken - we left Wigan towards the end of '56. I'm editing my Mum's memoirs, checking out detail about Wigan, where she grew up, did war work, married and started a family. Now 89, there's nothing wrong with her memories - and they're stirring a lot of mine.
