100

Me & Peggy in about 2000. She was pretty, I was so fat.

My granny would have been 100 today.

She was born on the 19th November 1911. 19.11.1911

It's her birthday. I wish she was here to get a telegram from the Queen.

I wish she were here so I could pop in and have a chat.

I still think of her every single day. She was so pretty. She had the softest peachiest skin.

She was a nag, in a way that I realise annoyed me intensely because she was often so right.

She peppers my thoughts in such a good way.

Granny, I miss you.

I hope you look down on us and smile.

  1. Lucy, I'm sorry you are hurting. Having recently lost someone very close to me who was like a mother I can understand.

    This is the time to settle into the love of your family.

  10. Sometimes the influence of grandparents isn't recognized until they are gone. I like to think they are smiling down on me. And your granny is too.
