Poor No Not Well Off Yes
We were never poor. Mum and dad always had a roof over our heads, fed us and clothed us, kept us warm in winter and we usually had a one week holiday in the summer but money was tight. At Christmas myself and my brother would work out what out of the things we wanted mum and dad could afford and ask for those first. The year I got my tv I was 19 all my class mates got theirs in their mid teens. My brother had a music system he was 13 at the time. When we realised what we had been given we both looked at each other and said how did they manage that.
