Blog Challenge Day 3


Day 3 of my bloggy challenge is to tell you about my first love!

Sooo...you may be expecting to hear about how I met the love of my life and married him and lived happily ever after....or you may be expecting to hear how when I was 6 someone introduced me to embroidery and I have loved it ever since...but I'm not going to talk about either of those...I'm going to tell you about Graham.

When I had recovered from my operations and went back to school we found that my sight restricted my ability to function in my primary school. I couldn't see the blackboard and other problems and the teacher just didn't have the time to give me to enable me to learn properly and so I went to Exhall Grange School for the Partially Sighted. I would get a taxi on Monday mornings from Leamington Spa to Coventry and a taxi home Friday afternoon and boarded the rest of the time. 

Now there was a boy in my class called Graham and I would swear to it being love at first sight! I remember wanting to play mummies and daddies in the little Wendy house but he wouldn't participate just sitting at the table reading the paper or something :-( But later we got to know each other better and became friends. 

After I had been at the school about a year the houses (there were 5) started having their annual dances. Now my house was the first to have a dance and we were expected to invite someone of the opposite sex and when my dorm mates suggested Graham I probably blushed and said no (why? cos I was too shy to say yes!) and so they picked someone for me that I hated and so my dance was a pretty miserable affair :-( But when it came around to Graham's house dance he invited me! We had a lovely time and from then on were inseparable doing everything outside lessons together :-) It was all very sweet and I was about 6. (Do I hear an aaaahh from somewhere?) 

Sadly for our relationship   my family moved to London and my consultant around the same time reckoned I could cope with normal school when I was 7 and so I left Exhall Grange and I don't even think I had a chance to say goodbye :-( I wonder if Graham remembers me?
