that's fair enough, Lady. so, I'm thinking set in the mid-to-late 80s when you were born. I see a meteor shooting towards a Welsh valley ...but is it a meteor at all.
I give you
Spartalena the rise and rise of
I think it's prudent for people to ask questions. lotsa deception floating around the web
so, fair enough you wouldn't bite on the novel thing.
what would you bite on
(this is a family thread)
Haha, you flatter me so.
Okay, true story...
I was born in 1963, during the, big freeze. In a house,upstairs in the bedroom, with a big blazing fire, the midwife and my Spanish grandmother, who couldn't speak English. And my mother of course.
I didn't want to come out, so they were there into the night, my grandmother had her rosary in her hand.
When I entered the world, my face was covered in a caul. It was attached and hooped around my ears.
My grandmother ripped it off my face and threw it in the fire, did the sign of the cross and said it was a bad omen.
You couldn't see my face for the blood.
And, I am, apparently, what is known as, a caulbearer, or witch, or maybe, woman.
The start of a supernatural story maybe.
I like spartalena 😁
