Heather Whitehead the barmaid became her friend; Heather was eighteen and the two girls went off to dances or hung around the Spanish City hoping to meet some nice lads who would take them out.

Lots of scotch lads would come down and it was a great way of getting a few free drinks.

They would end up in the park at the back of the Spanish City for a bit of a neck on and a quick grope before jumping on the last bus home.

Heather would go home to her sister Dawn and tell her all about the escapades that Liz and she got up to.’

Dawn was a secretary she worked for a local solicitor in Northumberland Square. She spent the day trying to keep Mr Judley from grabbing her bum at every opportunity.

Dawn had that gypsy look about her with long curly black hair and hooped earrings and a short skirt. Edward Judley was married but he told Dawn that his wife was hopeless in bed and that he wanted her with a passion. He would make her work late at night purposely so they could be alone and when everyone had gone he would sit beside her and run his hands along her legs. He told Dawn that he would leave Samantha his wife if she would come with him. He organised a trip to Blackpool for them; Dawn had never been away in her life she was only seventeen and Edward was quite a charming handsome man who was in his late twenties. He was tall and athletic looking. He played football for a local team on a Sunday.

“He told his wife that he had to go away on a business trip that weekend. Dawn and Edward took the train to Blackpool together. Edward took her to the pleasure beach and then out to see a show before he brought her back to a bed and breakfast hotel where they spent the whole weekend making love. Dawn became besotted by Edward and she fell hopelessly in love with him. She and Edward would make love in his office and she got more and more daring with him. He couldn’t get enough of her until his wife turned up unexpectedly and caught them together. She told him unless he got rid of Dawn she would tell her father who owned the business and he would be disinherited.

On the Monday morning Dawn cleared out her desk and was promptly fired.

She did however find other employment through Edward’s recommendation and an excellent reference.



When Tom had placed the last tray of pies in the oven everything in the bakery was swept down then washed in soap and water ready for the next morning.’

Tom rode home on his bike with a pack of buns and pies that were left over. There were two fresh cream doughnuts in the bag for his mother in a box so that they wouldn’t squash.

He lifted his bike up the steps and went into the door that was open then wheeled it into the passage and left it.

“Hi mam; I’m home.’

“I’m in the scullery son,

Pushing the rainbow blinds apart he went in and his mother was busy making a rabbit stew for their tea.

“Smells good mam;

“I’m making some corner puddings to go with them. Sit down son and I will make you a nice cup of tea.’

“I brought you a nice cake mam and some buns and pies for our bait tomorrow.’
