Going away with fish
"Well, of course my grandmother went away with fish, thatís what they said, you went away with fish"
Well, of course my grandmother went away with fish, thatís what they said, you went away with fish, so I was very aware of what was going on. And very aware of her routine, and I went to live with her for a few years, and, on and off really, because we lived at 34 and my granny lived at 60. And if you wanted to you could just hop along there sometimes and just stay with her a while and, which was nice, kept her company.
But actually, my brother lived with her because there wasnít room for him at home. We were two girls and a boy, but my brother and sister were older than I was and so my brother went to live with my granny to keep her company and have a roof over his head.
