Bank Holiday Monday and I'm wide awake at six o'clock and finally decided I may as well get up .... I had promised myself PJ days till the children return next week ..... I'm still in my PJs so I suppose that can still count can't it??
I've been catching up with some blogs and saw this post on Dancing on a Blade of Grass' blog which reminded me that I have two old director's chairs that belonged to my grandparents. When they passed in 1996 and the house was cleared the family all had the opportunity to claim something before it all went to the house clearance people. The two things that had always stuck out in my mind was a cuckoo clock which hung on their best room wall and the chairs that we used to sit it when we had weekends away. I was extremely lucky and used to spend most summer weekends with them and my cousins at the seaside and also camping at Billing Aquadrome and Cosgrove Park in Northamptonshire.
I've been sorting through my mum's old photo box and found these
There is me sitting on the grass at the front in a very unladylike pose and great grandma sits in one of the chairs on the right ....grandma sits on the left with my brother and faithfull Candy the pomeranian sits by her side.
Great grandma looked like this at age 16
and this with her young family in 1905
