The fool on the hill

By mooncoin

Those were the days

I’ve been sucked into family tree stuff again. Just by trying to confirm my mum’s year of birth...
Four hundred years ago there were only about 6 million on this little island. Nearly all my relatives seemed poor, they seemed to like having loads of kids (partly to offset the ones that died I guess) - and to live into your 60s was being proper old.
I find it all faintly depressing and I’m surprised they kept their shit together well enough to get to me arriving on earth.
