Visiting Mum and Dad

“The first time, when I left home I was given the weekend off straight away and I came home, I didn’t have a car so I took the train from Edinburgh to Newcastle and then the bus from Newcastle to Consett and then from Consett to Castleside. I knocked at the door and mum answered, and she exclaimed “Have you run away?” I had only been there a week.”

Nurse Caswell would regularly come home but she would never give her parents any warning.
