conversations with my mother #080811


Ma: We had a lovely day out, today.
Me: Yes?
Ma: Yes. We went to look at the graves.
Me: Ah?
Ma: The Family graves. You know. Near Malmsbury.
Me: Oh, THOSE graves!
Ma: Yes. And I wanted to say 'thank you' to Vera.
Me: Vera?
Ma: Aunt Vera. She left me some money when she died twenty years ago and I used it pay your sister's school fees and I never felt I said 'thank you' properly.
Me: Ah.
Ma: So, that's what we did.


House No. 1 - lovely. Ideal house, HUGE barn, about an acre of ground, reasonable rent and bills. But too far from the rest of our lives to be tenable.

Both feeling marginally better today.

Thank you for the lovely emails.

  1. It's good to hear you're both feeling marginally better today. Any improvement is an improvement still.
