Visit home of birth!

As I am very keen on researching my family tree, I have always wanted to go back to see the house I first lived in and where I was born. The 2nd house on the left is where my mother lived when I was about to be born, as my father was away in Ireland during the war.

My mother's sister and family lived there. 83 Doncaster Rd, Leicester. This area is now completely taken over by Indians with their beautiful sari shops and corner shops selling strange [ to me] food.

The right hand picture is the Westcote Maternity Home Leicester where I was actually born in 1944, Mum remembers the sand bags up against all the windows.

Visiting the place where we were born is so interesting!~ I live about 1/2 miles from the place where I was born!

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
