Mothers shared transport

Mary Jones from Llangattock and myself from Crickhowell. My mother had a car, something that was still quite rare in 1950 in rural Wales, moreover she could drive, an even rarer occurence. She used to give Mary's mother a lift and I have just learnt that Caroline's mother, from Brecon, also got a lift.
My mother ran quite a little taxi service!

I am still on strict bed-rest, lying on my side with my bed on blocks but I am out on the balcony which was much better than inside bleak Ward 2.
