was a teenager, she did try and find out who her mother was, but like her own mother she drew a Blank. By the time she was twenty five she had met and married Peter Jacobs an engineer from Parsons. They had two children; two girls Emily and Sarah Jane; how ironic that she had named one of her own children after her real mother and they had never met. Maybe there was some truth in Déjà vu.’

“When her two daughters called in to see their mother as they always did after work

Elizabeth sat them down and told them the news that she had found out.

One thing that Sarah Jane White hadn’t reckoned on and that she was not only a grand mother but a great grandmother too. Both Emily and Sarah Jane had a son; one was called Peter Robert and the other John James. Elizabeth smiled away to herself knowing that all of her family were connected to her real mother in some small way.’

She took out the photographs and showed them to her daughters. Doesn’t Peter and James look like our uncle’s mum; and you look just like your real mother?’

“Now, the funeral will be next week so can you get time off?’

“I don’t see why not. I think the children should go too. I will tell them about their other great grandmother later.’



The Twisted Wheel didn’t live up to everyone’s expectations; they were crap; however the singer who came on after was better; he got the audience joining in.

Then the disco came on and Tom and Mickey were up like a shot as Little Richard sang “The girl can’t help it” They swung into action with Alison and Shirley and had the floor taken with their display of Jive and Jitterbugging. The night hadn’t been a complete success but they came back to the apartment happier than they had when Twisted Wheel came on.

“Where the hell did they get those lads from said Tom; they were bloody tone deaf.’

“I cannot sing but I could have done better than that pile of shite replied Mickey.’

“Well at least they tried said Shirley.’

“Aye tried our bloody patience. “ You would have thought that they would have took the hint after they were booed after the first two songs but an hour later they were no better.’

I think they could improve though said Shirley.’

“What are you kiddin’ or what; even if I was pissed they would still have sounded crap.’

“They enjoyed our dancin’ though matey. ‘

“Aye we showed them all in that hall tonight didn’t we.’

“The girls just looked at one another then laughed.’

“What’s funny like?’

“You two, who were you dancin’ with?’

“Who were we dancin’ with, are you daft woman I were dancin’ wi yee who do yer bloody think I was dancin’ wi’

“Exactly, Shirley and I made you look good; didn’t we Shirl’

“Are you winding us up or what Alison; you know we can dance the socks of any of the blokes in there.’

They got to the apartment and Alison took out the key then let them all in. Who’s for a nightcap on the balcony?’

“I think you’ve had enough said Alison.’

Wha’ said Mickey as he poured himself a brandy from the duty free that they had brought.’

“You havin’ one Tom?’
