After leaving Auldgirth and moving to Stewarton I felt like I had left my old friends behind. I was the new kid with a strange accent. I was also a Celtic supporter. I went to Lainshaw Primary School
I tried to fit in by people pleasing. I was a lonely, confused, homesick 9 year old. This lead me into trouble as I did things that I didn’t want to do. I hated myself. The anger and frustration were getting deeper inside my being. I built a wall or protection around myself. I couldnt tell anybody.
I dreamed every day and nighg about auldgirth. Every school holidays I went to her house it was my safest place. The problem was I had to go back to Stewarton. One day s letter csme offering us a house in the Robertland. My life was going to change again.
