Gosh tough time back then for you, but as expressed, tremendous growth mentally.

Yeah, those injuries aren’t for wimps, Mom and I have both been unlucky in that regard. Ouch!

I had just joined the US Navy and was in boot camp, how could I forget that?

Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end

I was working for an Estate Agent . We didn’t just sell houses, we managed estates, collected rents from tenants and tenant farmers. I loved that job. Never got bored. Worked there until I had my first child.

That makes one grow up very quickly Jujo …sadly…







You are absolutely correct Aviara, I had no choice but to grow up very quickly.

That was quite an achievement. Going to University was not the norm, as it is now. Obviously the GCE was a higher standard than the current GCSE's.
At the age of eighteen, I was living in Nairobi and working in a hairdressers.

Unfortunately, only through adversity do we experience real growth.

Like most of my birthdays, it wasn't much different to any other day. I think someone got me a cake...but that was about it.
