Re: Missed “opportunities” in your working life or not.
I left the NE in late 1970, had a job already arranged down in a London, it was a wrench leaving home but I felt it had to be done as I wanted more from life than the NE, at that time, could offer me. I love going back to the NE and maybe my husband and I will return on a more permanent basis. The opportunities given to me during my working life down South were much greater than in the NE, also being female it was easier to get on in life in London than it would have been living in the NE when, in those days, females didn’t have a career they were expected to get married and take care of the home, don’t get me wrong that works well for some people but it would never have worked for me.
My working life from late 1970 until about 3 years ago was spent in central London towards the end I hated London couldn’t wait to finally move away. To be honest if I was starting again I don’t really know if I would enjoy London now, it has changed over the years and certainly not for the better, I believe the NE has better opportunities now than in the late ‘60’s but you have to look to find them.
