As a wee girl, I wanted nothing more than to be a nurse. Every time I played houses or pretend games with my sisters or friends, I was always Nurse Westerwood (don't know where I got that name, but never mind!).
However, when I was 16 I wrote to the Nursing Association who had their offices up Sauchiehall Street. I explained that I had always wanted to be a nurse, still did, but the sight of blood made me feel sick or faint, did they think that would be a problem( wub.gif idiot!). Back came the reply that they didn't want nurses who keeled over every time there was a wee drop of blood! Don't call us, we'll call you!
I never got to be a nurse - but having children and being a teacher soon put an end to my squeamishness around blood! Could they not have told me I would get used to it? Why did they not just give me a chance? sad.gif

From as far back as I can remember, I loved to sing...I still do! My parents used to take me to The Pavilion, The Empire, The Empress (which later became the Metropole at St. Georges Cross) and The Winter Gardens in Rothesay from when I was very young. I longed to be up there with the rest of the cast, on the stage belting out songs. When I was a teenager, I went to folk clubs and was the girl singer with a group...all very informal and no microphones. I met my husband at the age of 18 and carried on going to the folk clubs but then we got engaged at 20, married at 21, first baby at 22, 2nd baby at 23. Our 3rd baby arrived 5 years later when I was 28, so there was no time for a singing career, but I sang all the time to my children and have tapes of us singing from when they were old enough to talk. They are 36, 35 and 29 now and know all the words of all the old songs!

I wanted to be Ginger Rogers and ruined my Ma's sofa by "dancing" off and on it. Unfortunately, there was no Fred so my career didn't pan out!!! TRhe other thing I used to do was look out the tramcaur windaes at all the lovely dress shops in the town and imagine having the most fabulous wardrobe, especially those "come dancing" poofy dresses!!

As a kid I really wanted to be a cowboy.
As an adult I was contracting in the aircraft industry ... so I guess I made it tongue.gif
