Win I got on allright with, she was wilfull & jealous & had a dreadful temper but she married a wimp of a man & waited on him hand & foot even to being a joke in the family  He also wasn't safe to be left alone in a room with, he was about 6′ 3″ & had long arms like an octopus, but he was scared of Win. They seemed to jog along well together  Mu was the baby, spoiled rotten, & had to have her own way, if she didn't she'd be "poorly" & we had to give in to her. I know when we were in our teens she was jealous of me for "getting away" & for being complimented on looks & brains, & being the only one to get out of "miner's child syndrome." That sounds catty but it was so. She told many untrue stories about me, but we remained good friends  I tried to understand her feelings. She told Mother when she had you at times I never sent her any money for your "keep" or if I asked her to come for a few days, I only wanted her to come to "clean up" for me  This wasn't true & I was very hurt but Mum asked me not to say anything else she'd get into trouble for telling me.
