I believe there are no limits to what a person can achieve if they set their mind to it, no matter what background we are born into, we should not be restrained by boundaries. I was born into a working class background where there was no money and life was a daily struggle for my mother. In spite of this she did her best and taught us that the most important thing in life was to be honest and earn respect. She once told me that it takes a lifetime to develop a good name and only a moment to lose it. I have never forgotten this. I left school with hardly any qualifications but I was determined to make something of my life, if it hadn't been nursing it would have been something else. I don't believe that your background dictates who you are. I hope that my memoir demonstrates this. I hope to engage readers from every walk of life through my writing. Please enjoy, if you do, tell others, if not tell me and I will work harder to improve.
