Razor sharp


Very different from the one I watched my Pop use, many years ago.

But I remember the lather he made with the shaving brush and I can almost see his grin and feel the blob he put on my face, too 🙂

Lots of Toys


Being a grandma means playing with lots of toys and watching ABC for Kids 🙂



One of my earliest memories is of going mushrooming with my Nan and Pop, then eating them on toast while watching Football Inquest on Saturday night, followed by the football replay. No live coverage in those days and it was the only time we ever ate away from the dining room table. Nan and Pop had fold-out tables that look like trays on top of metal crossed legs. I often see them in antique shops. I remember thinking the mushrooms were the best thing I’d ever tasted but I’ve never been able to eat them like that again. I don’t even like the smell although I can eat mushroom mixed with other foods and on top of pizza 🙂
