VE 75th Anniversary

There's no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year. The tragedy experienced by many families is haunting. It's perhaps no surprise then, that our thoughts have often referred back to World War II as we start to relate to how our Grandparents or Great Grandparents must have felt.

This year, would have been my lovely (if not slightly bonkers) Grannies 100th Birthday. That coupled with the 75th Anniversary of VE day has given me the lovely opportunity to think back to the stories she used to tell me. Tales of the evacuees and how she used to rub gravy granules on her legs to make it look like she was wearing tights, give me that warm fuzzy feeling I used to get when I visited my Gran as a child.

Looking around my house, I noticed that there's actually a lot of my Gran's presence still with me... and my Grandpa- although I never met him, I'm always told he was one of the nicest men you could ever meet.... the sort that always had a boiled sweet in his pocket and a mischievous plan.

So here it is... my Grandparents relics that still make me smile. Gone but not forgotten!!!!
