    • I don’t think so. I remember going to her wedding, and I’m sure it was after Grandad died. I must ask my dad. Perhaps it was her brother’s wedding? My grandad was a widower, and his wife’s sister (Anne’s mother) was a widow, so I think he Grandad maybe took on a sort of fatherly role to his niece and nephew.

  1. Lovely. I can’t remember, at this moment, when my grandfather was born, but I am fairly sure he died in 1964. I have only the faintest memories of him, some of which relate to the number of cigarettes he smoked.

    • Thanks. I know my grandad was a heavy smoker (he died of lung cancer), but I guess he may have stopped by the time I was making memories. I do vividly remember being bought raspberry iceblocks from the icecream van that came around at lunchtime. I don’t think my mum was impressed as she was trying to get me to eat “proper food.” πŸ™‚
