The 1980’s in Ireland was a difficult time for most families. Foreign direct investment and globalisation for better or worse wasn’t where it’s at today. Jobs and getting affordable clothes was alien concept to a sizeable amount of Ireland’s population. This was even worse for my parents generation and money was a contentious point in our household in my early years.
However, as a child I didn’t understand this. I just knew if I broke something or wrecked my clothes the response from my folks was to tell me that money didn’t grow on trees. I took this literally as five year old. Already heartbroken after planting a lollypop stick in some dirt that never came to fruition, I decided to persevere. I tried coins and notes as a small child to help my parents, but these attempts failed miserably, so I just thought I planted them incorrectly.
Now through the power of imagination and completely missing the point of my mother’s words – I have finally made my money tree. It might need more sun though! ☀️
