she is the child of publicans who was a single mum who made her fortune in the haulage industry.

her son is a former heroin addict.

she got to the neighbourhood and the first thing she did was find a job.

my kinda woman!

impressed by her and by the ordinary folk in the community

sound patronidsing but it is humbling

i absolutely love her accent!

the first British accent i ever spent a lot of time around sounded like that - never left off lovin' the northern voice .

zippitippitoes Tue 09-Sep-08 21:47:44

she is lonely i think

expatinscotland Tue 09-Sep-08 21:48:40

she spent a lot of years building up her business.

zippitippitoes Tue 09-Sep-08 21:49:47

she is the same age as me

interesting when she said if her son had only had something l;ike the muasic project local to him

i wonder where he was when she was building her business

it is somegow easier to see other people than help your own family

Thankyou. She does seem very nice. Ooh, she's putting her glad rags on now.
