Chapter 18 Time Passes Quickly So now she had 7 children, all is well. All so different in their ways, April kept very strong, she looked after them all with their different individual needs, William worked hard and helped in the home, all the children helped and enjoyed themselves, they had many friends, April was always a good host, the children’s friends always loved coming around to visit, the kettle was always on, April always had that special smile that cheered people up when they spoke to her. April enjoyed going to charity parties, she would take some cakes and cheese straws she baked herself, which I might add became very popular. As the children grew up, their friends continued to pop in for a ‘cuppa’ with her and ask her advice and tell her what they’ve been up to, April was very welcoming and always took time to listen, still now they keep in touch, April was always there for them.
Time passed quickly 86 As the children left home and married, the home started to feel empty, April and William settled down together in their retirement. In their later year’s both had illnesses, so William and April retired to the seaside. William had breathing problems and thought it would help him, April had a bad heart and arthritis, and other illnesses, so it may benefit them both. April devoted her life to her children, even though it was a hard struggle she did her best, the children grew up happy and well cared for. The grandchildren loved to come to the sea side to see them. During her retirement, she was always active, April opened a keep fit class, which many enjoyed, she also worked in a shop and helped with dinners at the children’s home. April needed to keep active as this is what she is used to. April is so very proud of her family; they are all grown with families of their own now, she has many grandchildren and great grandchildren, April would never be lonely.
