Honey I’m Home!



Yep Yorkshire was fab, but I’m home now, and have had a scrub to wash the smell of smoke from my body and hair. Granny smokes.  A lot.  So everything needs washed that went into her house.

We chilled out, went shopping,  (I got the throw I wanted! And 2 new scarves from the market stall. Happy Days :) took Granny out for the afternoon, even though she protested and said we would have more fun without her, we told her she could sit in front of the TV any time, but this day she would enjoy a trip out whether she liked it or not :)  And she did.  Enjoy herself that is :)

This morning we watched the Remembrance Parade in London, we thought we may catch sight of my Dad and his brother who take part in the parade, but we didn’t see them before we had to get on the road home.  Granny told us some stories from the war, about her family who died, and about the WRVS making rice pudding for the men coming home as they thought it was a treat (Rice was a luxury for the people at home) The poor men had been living on rice while they were away so rice pudding was the last thing they wanted to look at!


Today was a day to remember.  And we did.  Hope you did too.
