Visit, Lunch and Family History

12 Oct

My cousin and her husband, who live in Australia, have been with us today and what a catch up that was! We think we last met in person when I was 16 and W a little younger. We have kept in touch by email and through this blog.  I had made Eccles cakes in her honour as I know how she loves them.

We went to Gylly Beach Cafe for lunch having driven around Castle Drive to see the fine view around the Carrick Roads across to St Mawes and into Falmouth Bay. I took a photo of the Specials board to share and the battery in my camera announced that it was “exhausted.” Hence no more photos of our day together…..

W brought me some treasures – some lovely photos of our shared Grandparents and a photocopy of a page of her father’s autobiography with references to my Mum, here known as Twm, the name her Father gave her that stayed as a nickname. It means Gift from God. The extract describes my Mum’s inventiveness and  her delightful sense of mischief. I had never heard this tale from her!

    What a treasure!

    Nice that you had a chance to reconnect in person after so many years.

      Thank you, yes. It was as if we had been friends for ever. It was lovely. And it was very special to hear of Mum’s mischief making! 🙂
