“When we lost the house, we had to go and of course rent a house. My husband had a bad case of gambling and it got from bad to worse. He got really sick and then he died, he had cancer of the brain which took him very quickly.”

“I had to go and rent another place and then I put my name down, it was five years and then I got the community housing.”

“If they’d offered me a tent, it sounds terrible, I think I would have taken the tent, just for the feeling, I needed security.”

“Life had turned into something that you wouldn’t have even thought it could turn into.”

“I gradually rearranged and through right I’ll make this my world inside, because if it gets depressing outside I can always come inside. I’ll create my world in here. Things feed your personality and stop you thinking about oh woe is me, which you can get into in life if you don’t watch it.”

“We’re all different and nobody’s perfect and some of us are less perfect than others unfortunately because we’re different make up.”
