Margaret BOWEN(Image: Family submission)
1943-2016 'Queen of The Kitchen' at Dean Close Senior School for 44 years. We met we married a long time ago, We worked long hours when wages were low, No TV, no wireless, no bath times were hard, just a cold water tap and a walk down the yard, No holiday's abroad, no posh carpets on the floors, But we had coal on the fire and we didnt lock the doors, Our children arrived, no pills in them days, And we brought them up without any state aid, They were quite safe to go and play in the dark, And the old folk could go for a walk in the dark, No Valium and no drugs, We cured most of our ills with a nice cup of tea, But if you were sick you were treated at once, No fill out the form and come back in six months, No Vandals, no mugging-there was nothing to rob, And we were quite rich on a couple of bob, People were happy in those far days, Kinder and caring in so many ways, Milkman and paperboys used to whistle and sing, A night at the pictures was our mad fling, We all got our share of trouble and strife, And we just had to face it 'the pattern of life' But now I'm older and look back through the years, I don't think of the bad times the trouble and tears, I remember the Blessings, Our home and our love, And that we could share them together and thank God above. Love, John, Joe & Jonjo xxxx
