Hello there... Thankyou for stopping by, although I have lived in England for the past few years I was born and bred in BELFAST, less than a mile from Harland and Wolffe, where as everyone knows the ill fated Titanic was bulit.
Both my grandfathers along with most of our neighbours had worked on the ship, my mothers' father had fallen 80 feet into the docks and he went back to work 2 days later strapped up and in agony. They told me tales of how most of the workers were paid by their production and how they'd climb over the wall to get 'INTO' work! no such thing as health and safety then, and of the hard labour, the sweat, the tears, and the pride that went into the making... and the pain and sheer disbelief at the loss.
During these tales and 'many more' my grandmother sat by the open fire knitting, or crocheting the latest 'necessity' she'd smile, she'd frown, but she'd just keep on knitting…
