Elaine was born in Guys Hospital, London, 2nd eldest of 6 children in Bermondsey. In those days, people left keys on the back of doors to obtain them through the letter box so you can let yourself in, children were left in prams outside their homes and they could be some distance too, especially if you were living in a 2nd floor flat and babysitting was second nature at the age of 14 for pocket money.
Over the years Elaine has spent so much time with children, mum thought I was going to be a teacher, it wasn't to be.
Instead, like most kids in those days was drawn to work in the City!
Elaine spent years building up her experience working in several companies in the City. She also made many friends too by her casual job (part time) of sittings.
Elaine married had two baby boys and found herself organising a Mothers and Toddlers Group and one day on her way home found an abandoned Cat! She took this cat in at few weeks old and named him "Skinny" who lived for 19 years.
She managed a creche and organised events for the mothers at the group. YES, it was all mothers then, no dads!.
