Ethel came from Lowestoft by train home about 14.30. This week has been very warm from Monday. This week Roy left Sheila & the children & went to live in Norwich. Why? I do not know.
Ethel refers to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin.
Grandad noted that dad had “left” us. This issue is covered in some detail in Chapter 99 although I refer to it as mum and dad splitting up. I had just turned 13 although. from memory, I thought I was younger.
