My Wonderful Wobbly Life

by Charles Irwin

GENRE:  Memoir (Autobiography)



Having survived quite a few birthdays and had some interesting experiences, I wrote them down. That's how "My Wonderful Wobbly Life" was conceived. It was nearly born in 2004, but decided to hang on until 2018 to become 'Born again' Alleluia!!!!



“When they told my mother her little Bobby had brain damage and was a cripple, can you imagine how she felt? According to her, devastated!

The way home from the hospital led to one of London’s bridges across the River Thames.  She stopped halfway across with the intention of SPLASH!!! End of story for both of us. She hesitated. The thought of a man crippled by polio, who had succeeded despite his disability and become President of America, came into her mind. She walked on thinking, if F.D. Roosevelt can succeed, so can my Bobby!

When my father arrived home that afternoon my mother was on her hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen floor, filling the bucket with her tears.

“What’s the matter Peg?”

“Oh Bert! our little Bobby’s a CRIPPLE!”

“Well Peg, even if he is, there is one thing we are not going to do. We are not going to be ashamed and hide him away. He will come everywhere with us.”

He was as good as his word. I went everywhere with them when I was young and have fantastic memories of fun times. One of my favourites was being at a dance hall, possibly the Wimbledon Palais de Dance. I could not have been older than three or four, but I distinctly remember my father dancing around the dance-floor with me standing on his feet. It made me feel so proud and grown-up and I was then content to sit and watch for the rest of the evening.  He was a real Yorkshireman, proud of me, his son. “



Do you ever wish you were someone else? Who?

No, but I do wonder what type of personality I’d have had if I had not been disabled at birth.

What did you do on your last birthday?

Spoke with my son and daughter on the phone during the day. Then in the evening had a celebratory dinner with my dear wife.

What part of the writing process do you dread?

All of it. Because I am a Chartered Engineer by profession, not a writer.

Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?

Sometimes, I remember when I was constipated and took my time, sat with a pencil wrote and worked it out!

Tell us about your latest release.

It was a simulated Harry Houdini escape. I was decorating the Christmas tree when the fairy lights attacked and had me in their clutches. However, swiftly twisting my left leg to the right and my right leg to the left, with a quick shake and a ‘Hokey-Kokey’ >>>>> FREEDOM!


AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Charles was born in London U.K. in 1932. During his birth the forceps slipped, resulting in brain damage to the motor control nerves of his right side and causing total body spasticity. However, his intellect was not damaged. Throughout his life the two adversaries, controllable brain and semi-controllable body, always needed to be balanced. After several years of work and study he became a Chartered Production Engineer. In 1971 he emigrated to Australia and became a senior examiner in the Australian Patent office. This autobiography illustrates the rhyme: “He started to sing as he tackled the thing, That couldn’t be done - but he DID IT!” Charles chronicles his journey from useless to useful, with humour and joie de vie. He pays tribute to friends who only gave him help when it was asked for. At a young age he recognized his psychic abilities and, by using lessons at the end of each chapter, shares some insights with readers.
