Tuesday 27 February 1973

P R A & E came for dinner, they came & went home by bus. Barbara was not at work, she had a very bad finger, Ethel asked her in for tea. Had 2 new batteries for Roberts wireless.


P R A & E refers to me and my siblings – Patricia (Tricia), Roger, Alan and Elizabeth (Liz). For more about us using the bus to get to grandma and grandad’s see Chapter 110.

Barbara refers to Barbara Carpenter, grandma and grandad’s next door neighbour.

Ethel refers to my grandma Ethel May Cecilia Parkin.

For more details of Roberts radios (wirelesses) that grandma and grandad had, see Chapter 108.
