Mama Clutterbuck


Elizabeth is at home with the kids this week for the holidays. She has been scanning old photographs. This is her Dads mum later in life. We have the tables and chairs in our house. It is nice to see them where they used to live. Pride of place with Mama.

Her name was Gwendolyn Blodwyn John and she was from Wales. She lives on on a shelf in our shed with her husband and Elizabeth's dad. One day we will get around to finding an appropriate spot for them. Elizabeth's other Grandmother was called Violetina Minnie. Aren't those names great? My grandfathers name was Ebeneezer. Aren't we lucky that the grandparents didn't force us, both first born's to be named after them. Thank you Thank you.

That fireplace takes me back. So dressed up in her own house, now we all slop around in any old thing and hope no one drops by.
