Mother

In memory of my mother Evie on Mother's Day


Evie holding me age 1 in 1960, on the back of my baby photos I am named as Lynette but it didn't stick and later I got called Betty.  I was being kissed by our dog Talquin... the 60s decor continued throughout the next 20 years and had  a strong influence in our home!


Evie holding me at bathtime.

Happy Mother's Day to all Mums! says Betty as she eats her favourite Dark Ginger chocolate donated by youngest boy!

  11. Dark chocolate ginger? That gets my attention, and is a big thing to have in common with you. ;-) Also, we both have mothers - and your remembering of your mother here is very sweet. I love the pictures. Thank you!
