Anyway onto the serious stuff - My Nana's. I had two very different Nans - Dad's mum was strongly Catholic with 11 living children (pregnant 16 times according to family tales), a farmer's wife and Mum's mother was married to a bank Manager Mason (how did Mum get away with marrying a catholic?). I'm guessing the few times they met would have been a very polite meeting but not much more.
Anyway, they were both my Nan's so I loved them both. They both lived very long lives, the last 20 or so years without their husbands. Glad I have very clear memories of both.
This months challenge at Another Freaking scrappy challenge is -
Use this sketch along with this challenge - Mother’s Day is celebrated in May in some countries – scrap a memory of your mother or grandmother, or another lady who has influenced your life greatly.
Come and play, would love to read about some important women in your life.
I have also been playing along at The Lilypad again - this is for a template challenge -
The big thing that is making me happy at the moment is that the Interior designer has sent back some initial plans for the house and there are cupboards everywhere!!! Yay!!! I thought she just did colours but she hasn't even started on those yet - she has plotted every drawer, every little nook in the house - huge job - and the walk in pantry will be close to the size of our current kitchen - may just move in there..
and Irini, sorry to say they just laughed at me when I suggested a mini bar in the guest room...sigh.
have a good one and don't forget come and play with us!!
