Cousin Turtle lives in WA and as you may have seen from her comments, she is working very hard to achieve ‘favourite cousin’ status. Cousin Turtle recently sent me a lovely gift of Victoria’s Secret products (fragrances and lotions, not lingerie!) and Napoleon lip gloss. Thank you! She is also the daughter of fav auntie Karyn from WA who has called and texted often and just today I received a card from her with a Kit Kat taped inside. Cousin Turtle has made multiple requests for a photo of me wearing our beloved nana Phyllis’ wig and apron. I believe there may be a wedding in Perth in the near future, which will hopefully coincide with my remission tour, which cousin Turtle has volunteered to organise.
Yesterday would have been Phyll’s 100th birthday so a few of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren got together for dinner, a cake, a few wines and a bit of reminiscing. Uncle Max in WA even sent us a photo of the birthday card he bought for her. As kids, we all loved Phyll and would stay at her place quite often (well the favourites anyway). I would wear her pink apron, which I still have, and cook scones with her. We thought our nana was so cool, her nickname was ‘Trendy Gran’.
So, especially for you cousin Turtle. Here I am in the wig (which now resembles a wig from the wig library) and apron.
And since you kindly donated to your favourite auntie Pam, she has come to the party too!
And for your viewing pleasure, here are some photos of some other members of the family, mostly taken at another family occasion. I am sure they will all be pleased to have made it to the blog too!
Notably absent is fave sis Jenni so I will have to get a photo and post that later.
There you go Turtle. I hope that has put a smile on your face. The dodgy hodgy chemo cut number 8 will be coming soon.
