Enid Cavallaro Nee Greenwell Bundaberg Queensland Australia 18th Feb. 2003

I was reading this page tonight and enjoying the stories when as my page scrolled down I came across the words “My grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Hudson”. I thought to myself, hang on Elizabeth Ann Hudson was my great grandmother. I kept scrolling and found myself reading about us, my family. The lady writing is my mothers cousin Sheila. My mother was one of the 5 Mitchell cousins she mentioned. I was born in Ushaw Moor and lived the first 11 years of my life in Ushaw Terrace, until my family moved to Australia in 1967.I went to the Ushaw Moor Infants school, where my best friend was Margaret Turnbull. and spent my childhood playing on the village green. I remember walking to the pit with my grandfather James Mitchell when I was very young to pick up his pay.

Going to the allotments at the top of the street with our neighbour Mr Dunn, going with my dad to the baths in Durham for swimming lessons and going to the shop on the corner of our street and buying frozen Jubblies for a penny.I remember staying with my Great Aunt Lallie Hudson and having midnight tea parties in front of the fire while she told me stories of her childhood.My husband and I went to England in October 1999 and I took him to see the village. In many ways it was like walking back 30 years for me, a few things had changed but the important things that I remembered from my childhood were all still there.
