I went to the nursery there, i can't remember much about the school, what i can remember and this might jog a few memories of anyone who went to the nursery, every day we had to have a little sleep, the teachers would put little type of camp beds out and we would get a blanket, my blanket had a drum on it and i think the bed also, when we awoke, we would then have to go to something on the wall with pockets in, my pocket had a drum on it and thats where my comb was. Every kid had their own identity symbol. They had a toy that was only got out as a treat, similar to the bobbing hoses at a fair ground, this was bobbing sea lions, clockwork i suppose.


God help us,
Come yourself,
Don't send Jesus,
This is no place for children.
