Some of the jewels left to me.
This is a difficult post for me to write as it is about my two now deceased grandmothers. I was lucky enough to have them both in my life until my late 20s. They were opposite in every way, my father's mother was loud and bolshy whereas my mother's mother was the opposite; calm, serene and peaceful even after mothering 7 children. They both, along with my mother, have been the main female influences in my life. These days photos and a selection of pretty thing are all that are left to me to remind me of these two incredible women.
