Theme Thursday - Kid

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one Thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:
  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
The theme for this week is
KID , child, baby, toddler, boy, girl etc

My selection for this week:
"I looked after children, I babysat, I helped on the farm, I did my own washing," she says. "We did as much as we could and were always doing things with the children. But the landlady would insist on bringing us a cup of tea in the morning. One day she suddenly said: 'I shan't be here next week, my aunt will be coming to look after you. Actually, I'm having a baby.' We felt so awful that we had let her wait on us and we had no idea. She just laughed and said: 'You know, you're not the only ones who can keep a secret.'"

This is from the book The Secret Lives of Codebreakers: The Men and Women Who Cracked the Enigma Code at Bletchley Park by Sinclair McKay, which is, as expected, excellent.

I've haven't heard of that one but it sounds really interesting. I'll have to give it a look.
