50 years

Today, the 22nd July, is 50 years to the day since my mum first step foot in Britain.

It's quite amazing really, because she only intended to stay for 5 years. Instead, she got married to my late father and had me and my sister. It's interesting to ponder on the thought that if my mum had gone back to Jamaica and had me there what would I have become? Would I have grown up into a birder? Would I have ended up married with 6 kids and a couple of cats and no passion for life? Or would I have been a famous (infamous) sportsman?

The what-if's are almost endless.

Happy anniversary mum! x
