Nurses’ Day, Sewing and My Mum

12 May

It’s International Nurses’ Day so let’s hear it for Nurses all over the world who do such a remarkable job day after day in ordinary times as well as in extraordinary times. 

Last night I sewed the buttons onto my last four scrub caps which will be collected by Cornwall Scrubs for distribution soon. A friend posted two caps for me the other day and yesterday  I received a message of thanks from a Nurse on ICU in Doncaster whose Mum has been a very dear friend of mine for many, many years.

Yesterday I posted a photograph of my lovely Mum and one of my cousins who lives in Australia wrote a comment about how alike our Mum and her Dad were at similar ages. I think they looked alike from being very young as the following old photo, taken in about 1920, shows.

    Very impressed with your diligent sewing for the health professionals in Cornwall. Good on you! And that’s a lovely picture of your Mum and her brother — 100 years ago! xoxox

      A one hundred year old photo ! Quite something, hand coloured and very beautiful. I have enjoyed the sewing. I’m now working on masks for the Barcelona family. 🙂

    Lovely photo of Dad and Twm taken a century ago. What beautiful children they were! Thanks for your good wishes for our well-being. We are fine in our quiet little corner of south west Australia and hope that the area will remain virus-free when the regional borders open soon. Hope all is well in Cornwall.

    I think it is nurses day as it is today Florence Nightingale’s birthday 200 years ago. A great profession and well underpaid. The work all nurses do every day and specially these days is amazing.
