Grandma (T)



I think for my mother, the perfect world would be to live in a small, pretty English village with frequent unexplained violent murders, to test her detective skills. Caring for her children and now her grandchildren, though, must be a pretty close second.

Here she's helping fire up the steam engine for Eddie's amusement, and stopping work on her Bayeaux Tapestry to read the boys stories.

by the look of that page turning it seems to be a bit of speed reading going on

Lovely pictures of happy times with the dear little boys. History does repeat itself - the steam engine was Tom's, and just tonight Eddie enjoyed one of the Enid Blyton's Tom loved as a little boy. Next to read him one that was his Grandpa's.

I'm always surprised about how many violent murders small quaint villages can have.
