washing the step

…Once a week our mam would wash the step, or if need be repaint it. It was always first impressions. If your step was clean then so was the house. I’d see women on different days of the week washing or painting their steps. It was a regular and normal thing to see.  When mam was busy she’d always say “get yersel away with yer friends or take the dog for a walk”. I’d disappear for hours on end, usually turning up back home in time for tea…
