I think so yeah because, like when I was a child my mother would have been sent for if someone was having a baby...and she’d be running over with pots, now I mean, pots and sheets, and em if somebody died she’d be going over with the sheets to wash them and lay them out, and I would have had to go with her, cause if she wanted anything back in the flat she’s send be back for it that’s where I kinda got me em me em, sense or me values from you know that way?
