snap it {old}


My beautiful Nanna.
She may not remember who we are, but she still loves us.
And we love her.

My mind is so full of beautiful memories of her.
:: we would cook toast on the wood fire at their beachside house
:: she would cut said toast into four triangles and spread a different spread onto each
:: we would dress up in all her clothes, make a mess, and she would just laugh
:: she would caress our eyes and forehead until we went to sleep
:: sometimes, when we refused sleep, she would press our eyes shut and sing lullaby's
:: she would give us 20 cents to walk to the shops to buy a very large bag of lollies
:: all lollies would be eaten before we got back to her house
:: her vegetable garden is one I dream about - so abundant and full of home-grown goodness
:: she would drink shandy, and always pour us one {1/8ths beer, 7/8th lemonade}
:: whenever we went to her house, she would always whip up a batch of Anzacs and vanilla milkshakes - with loads of ice-cream

I could go on all night.

I love her to bits.


Linking up with the amazing Sarah
