And you used to play then with your sisters?

Me younger sisters, yeah, we’d all play together.

And what kind of games would you play?

We fought one another more like! Not fight, argue! What kind of games did we play? We used to play relevio and spin the bottle

Can you describe those games to me?

Well you’d be chasing a young fella, spin the bottle and if it went over to him you got a kiss off him! Yous didn't do any of that?

Well, spin the bottle is familiar alright, relevio now is that like chasing?

Well I don’t know, well you used to like the young fella but if the bottle didn’t go over to him you wouldn’t go over and give the other fella a kiss!
