They say don't judge a book by its cover, but it's human nature to instinctively do it. On this cover, I've placed a framed picture of my husband as he was in life, with the words "They didn't listen, they didn't know how" indicating from where he is right now, he can see a bigger picture. I say "framed" because there is evidence indicating he was a diabetic, but in fact, he was suffering from something else. The back cover has a selection of photographs of him enjoying life against a background of honeycomb with the inscription "Life became too sweet for me" I invite you to read on with an open mind!

About the Author:

I was born at Welshpool Cottage Hospital in mid-Wales on June 28, 1957. I boast a twin sister called Gwenfron, fondly known as Gweno to her family. I also have two younger brothers, Glyn and Alwyn. I was born to Welsh-speaking parents, who always speak Welsh in the family home. My parents are Eirlys and Elfyn Jones, better known as Eirlys and Elfyn Mynydd Dwlan. Mynydd-Dwlan being the name of the farm where I was raised before I migrated over the border to England, I was better known as Olwen Mynydd-Dwlan rather than Olwen Jones. This was at school as well as in our local community. At the age of fifteen, I attended Newtown College; there I studied for my prenursing certificate, which enabled me to start my nurse training at Wrexham War Memorial Hospital. On August 23, 1977, I qualified as a state enrolled nurse and later sought employment at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, where I later obtained my diploma in orthopaedic nursing. I spent eighteen months on the Spinal Injury Unit before moving to London for twelve months in the private sector. I settled down to married life in Kidderminster, where I found employment at Kidderminster General Hospital. After some years, I had to complete a further course to convert to a state registered nurse or become a nursing auxiliary. I was reminded of how hard I'd worked for my qualification. Recapping on my struggles, I agreed and qualified as a staff nurse. I have done thirty-six years of unbroken service in nursing. Sadly, at the age of fifty-one, I became a widow and the contents of this book are about my husband's life before we met, our life together, and my life without him.
