Old habits die hard

Got this from ISS yesterday

“She is very determined and creates when she can’t have her own way!”

The file I was given from ISS yesterday contained many reports by social workers who visited me at my foster home, and later my adoptive parents home. They make for very funny reading.

“She hasn’t stopped eating since she came here, and I can’t find any food she doesn’t like”.

But the loveliest thing is reading about my parents delight in having me “Mr and Mrs Enock are delighted with her and “would not part with her for anything”. Those who know me well will know things didn’t turn out quite as everyone had hoped. But it’s heartening to see in black and white a time when life was joyous for us all.

Looking for my long lost family in Hong Kong And previously.... Fell in love with coastal living 5 years ago. And moved to stunning St Ives. A place to create and grow and flourish. Got me a home and a job. And never looked back. Everyone talks and writes about the famous dead people of St Ives. Virginia and Alfred and Ben and Barbara and Peter and Wilhelmina. Well I thought I’d introduce you to some very nice folk, and they’re all very much alive and make St Ives a much the better town for it.

  1. Wow, that is very interesting on so many levels. How somethings/people change and how they stay the same. How we develop into adults and indeed into old people. How life beats us up sometimes. “If they had known better they would have done better” to slightly misquote our friend Maya. Axx
