My Early Years - a Memory of Wimbledon.

I lived at South Park Road Wimbledon till I was about 8 Born in 1945 I remember going full time to nursery but sadly can't remember the name. I do know I attended Queens Road school till my mother remarried and we moved to Swansea, Sadly my best memories were before we moved leaving grandparents and relatives behind. Swansea couldn't compare with what I'd left behind but I had to accept my lot and married a wonderful man 52 years ago. 17 years ago after retiring we moved to Herefordshire which is wonderful. Sadly I can't remember names of schoolfriends but I still feel part of it. Only the name Maureen comes to mind. My name then was Carol Bussell, I then apparently had to use the name of my Stepfather...Hawes so was brought up to believe he was my father. you never know you might remember me.
