In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fireside Chat.”

I would choose to have a fireside chat with my Great-Grandmother (Brigit) whom I have never met.

All I know about her is that she was born in England with Irish parents (I think)
She had a hard life, came from a very poor working class background. Her husband was physically abusive to her on countless ocassions, I have heard stories from my Mother who was told stories from her mother of the suffering she received at the hands of her husband.

I have been told I am most like my Great Grandmother to look at, I do wish I had more photos of her, but sadly I only have this one.
