1. Ahhhh damn it woman, you made me cry. Your Grandmother sounded very similar to mine. After my Grandfather died she spent many years living on her own, tending to her HUGE garden and yes, finding her up a ladder on a roof fixing it would have been exactly the kind of thing she would have got up to.

    I am so glad my post inspired you to write this and I love that you still have her wedding dress. How precious is that

  2. This especially: ‘I have planted her peonies in front of my house, I hope theyโ€™ll finally bloom this spring. When they do, I will probably cry’ really moved me. I had a very close relationship with my grandma too, and this post brought back some lovely memories. Thank you for sharing it xx
