My Time At The Children's Home

A Memory of Broadstairs

I have often wonder why I have this memory of being sent away, as with many I have read, you felt as you were being punish for being ill. Can remember not seeing my parents for nearly three years -I was only just about 5 when I was there. I can remember being pushed to the beach and also being made to sleep in the afternoon, and then starting school there. It was strange when I finally went home as I couldn't remember much of my parents. It was a emotional time all round.
