For many years, when we lived in Yorkshire, I worked for two weekends in June as the ‘cash and wrap’ lady for Jane and Ted Hamlyn’s selling weekend. As payment, I always received beautiful pieces of Jane Hamlyn’s salt glazed pottery and I have the loveliest collection of her pots and some of Ted’s paintings. One year, she made a tea set for a customer and then one for me for Grandchildren that we hoped to have but of whom there was as yet no sign. Now we have some and this week we have given the tea-set to B, LiveWire No 4. She has played with it every day and is delighted with it.
We had lunch today at The Blue Bar with B, LiveWire No 4 and her Mum, Daughter No 3, my beloved Brother and his wife. Here is B, looking for her little cousins on the beach.
We have said Goodbye to my kid Brother and my beloved SiL today who leave on the train tomorrow morning and I am very sad. We have had a brilliant time and very soon I will be able to focus on that. Right now I am sad.
