Determined I shouldn not miss out on a large school sports trip to Australia, ever-resourceful Mum insisted we sell raffle tickets and do all sorts of fundraising around town. We also applied for a small grant from the school. I was so embarrassed at the time I thought it made us look poor and needy but it was the only way I could go and, of course, she was right. However, with my new responsibilities, my sports and other activities began to fall by the wayside, replaced with work commitments. I was working in a dairy back in Manaia (just a fifteenminute drive from Hawera), at the post office and delivering circulars, and going to school in between. Occasionally, I would even go to work instead of going to school to make more money to help run the household, and I know Mum would have hated that. Most of the time I didn not mind the fact that my weekly wages went into the family budget, but there were definitely moments when I would pine for something fun and I would get upset at the situation I was in. I had to grow up so fast I was constantly thinking about work, what Mum is schedule was, where I needed to be when, who was picking up the kids Looking back now, I was becoming a ‘rushing woman’ at the age of fourteen! During this period there was also a past event resurfacing and manifesting in different ways, and affecting my behaviour. But I didn not want to add to what was already a really difficult and stressful time for the family. So away it went, deep down locked away and ignored.
