Fractured Arm

A Memory of Ashford

We lived literally round the corner in 27 Sackville Crescent. I remember when I was about 12 I fell over on my roller skates and hurt my arm. When it still hurt the next day, my mum, who thought I was making a fuss about nothing, said if it hurts, go to the hospital - so I did! And it transpired that I had a greenstick fracture of my forearm and they put me in plaster for eight weeks ! So there!
