Biro on Paper


We lived in a little brick terraced house on a steep hill in Leeds. Our garden was very small, but I played in it constantly. We had old rose bushes, with Lily-of-the-valley growing under them. I liked to drink the water coming down the drain from the kitchen, until my mum discovered I was doing this. I liked insects. I was especially fond of wood-lice, and liked to play cars with them...broom broom...whoops, the legs would come off I'm afraid.
