From milk to raspberry

Having told you about one of my own worst smackings, I thought I would share the story of one of the sorest bums ever received by my sister Mary.

While I don’t doubt for one minute that Mum did – and does – love us, I think it’s fair to say that she is not naturally maternal. I would go to friends’ houses and watch their mothers, all tenderness and kind words, patience and understanding.
