As I drove back last night, from an evening at the cinema with MissG. My mind wandered back to my childhood and a very special lady in my life, Mrs Richardson.
I had terrible problems learning to read and write as a youngster and when I was about 8 or 9 I had special reading classes with this lady. Which in the mid 60's in a state school in Cambelwell was a huge stroke of luck If it hadn't been for her I don't know where I'd be now. I love to read and am beginning to enjoy writing too. There hasn't been a month in my life where I haven't thought of this woman. She's been the most influential person in my life. I guess she's past on now and this, thank you to her is long overdue but "thank you Mrs Richardson".
The day hasn't gone too badly. Sorted out a nonworking boiler in the morning. Tried to sort out a tiny leak on a shower tray in the afternoon and have had four call-outs so far to boot.
Someone else who enabled others to read was Louis Braille. So he's my star man today.
Louis Braille (1809-1852)
Onwards and upwards :~)
