Hello everyone.
I'm in need of your help again.  I'm trying to find out about a place
I was in when I was around 7 years old or 8 years old.
For some reason I was in this place on Wales.
I really don't know  very much about it.  I have a small memory of what
The staff looked like.
At the time of me being in this place. I was living in Cardiff street
In harperhey. I was born 1957. So I could have been in Conwy 1964.

During my stay. I had developed mumps.  It was Easter. I remember
That because. I was given my basket that my Easter egg was in.
My great gran Frances eaither brought it for me or my mum or dad.
But wasn't allowed to visit me.

I wasn't there very long because of school.
I remember a train station. Because my dad came to pick me up. Hello
Had my brother with him. It might be possible my brother was with me.
I don't remember.

My mum said the place I was in wasn't far from Conwy castle.
From what I can understand or make out.
I could have been in a converlesnt home for children.
What i don't know is why I was sent there or sent me.

What i do remember is sitting on my bed looking out of the window
Waiting for my mum and dad or eaither. The what I think
Might have been a nurse. Brought my basket and explained that
They shared my Easter egg to the other children. Because I had mumps.

I also remember standing outside. Looking up and saw
This balloon looks like a air balloon.

Anyway if there's anything anyone can help me with.
I really would appreciate it.

Thank you for your help and time


I noticed someone mentioned Conwy on here.

Thank you again for your help

Hi Dorothyl,
I was going to reply to another post that I saw regarding your family information that you were seeking when I saw this post of yours too.
I believe I know your half sibling side of your family.
Regarding this place in Conwy , it is Dr Garrett's convalescent home in Conwy.
Manchester hospitals used to refer poorly children there , and I believe that other members of your half family also to have spent time there.

If I'm on the right tracks, the name George should mean something to you?!
Beat wishes

I'm replying to a reply to a post I did some time ago.

I have a brother called George. But he's not my half brother.  I don't remember him being in Conway.  My eldest brother was for a few days.
I say eldest brother.  He is even though he's 2 years younger than me. We was living in Harpurhey at the time. I think I was around 7. He would have been 5 year's old.

If there's anything anyone can help me with on this I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you again
