We both recognised the rebel in each other and I was drawn to people who had spirit (good or bad). We were about nine years old, sexually curious, and both our elder sisters had recently ‘come of age’. We’d heard all the talk about periods and breast development and suspected it wouldn’t be too long before we’d be entering womanhood. I suppose we were a bit impatient to get started, as we took to stuffing hankies and socks down our vests to make it look like we had big boobs, and we’d strut along the street repositioning our padding if it slipped out of place.
I can remember him showing me how to do it and me singing ‘Bobby’s Girl’ into the microphone. My dad’s passion for electronics meant we had one of the first televisions in our street, which took pride of place in the living room. A neat wooden cabinet with a built-in speaker and a tiny black-and-white screen. We had to wait what seemed ages for the valves to warm up before the picture came on. My dad subscribed to Electronics Weekly magazine and kept piles of them stored under the sofa. He had all kinds of projects on the go.
It all sounded a bit like laying down boundaries in an area that I’d relished as having none. They say kids grow up too quickly today but I was sexually adventurous at an early age. ’ Unlike the other girls, I never said ‘Nervous’ – and also unlike them, I reversed the roles and played the Nervous game on the boys. Some boys said ‘Nervous’, but I didn’t always stop. I was really into boys at junior school. I got caught in the store cupboard ‘messing about’ with two of my classmates, Brian and John.
