I have worked for Mrs Straike for many years and helped her care for her son Laurie when he was a little boy. He has grown into a lovely young man - so polite and helpful, and very devoted to his mother (and brave too; he volunteered as soon as the war started).
I am a longstanding member of the local chapter of the Women's Institute and helped organise collecting blackberries from the hedgerows and making them into jam during the war with the extra sugar ration sent by the Ministry of Food.
I am a member of the church women's group (and pretty good a flower arranging, even if I do say so myself). My Victoria sponge has won prizes at the village fete; and Laurie has always said my steak and kidney pudding knows no equal.
