I have many happy childhood memories of my grandparents, spending weekends with them, eating fantastic food from their garden, listening and dancing to old records, watching musicals on the telly, rummaging through their garage... The list is endless.
I knew very little about my Grandmother's past and she preferred it that way. I was always curious about her life before 'us'. When I was searching for a nice photo for her funeral, I found this...
Nanny would have been about 18 then. What a lady :-)
But this is how I remember her...
On the back of the photo is written 'a housewife's work is never done'.
Ha! It seems we had a lot in common.
Rest in peace Nanny and Pop and thank you for the delicious food, the crispy cotton sheets, the do-it-yourself / make-it-yourself gene pool, the hidden treasures, the humour, the security and the care. I didn't realise until now, just how much you taught me xx
