Tuesday's Treasures

I've decided to join in 'Claire's Craftroom' blog's Tuesday Treasures. I have had a lot of fun looking at the things people hold dear. Some I recognise from my own childhood or youth.
This is one of my treasures. Yes I know it's a raincoat. It belonged to my late grandmother Lucy. The raincoat is at least 45 years old now and is in good condition. I stopped wearing it a number of years ago.
Grandma died at 56 years of age - far too young. This comes home to me even more so now as I have just had my 54th birthday. It was only 6 months after her 54th birthday that the signs on Motor Neurone Disease start to show.This is a photo of Lucy and grandad George on one of their very few holidays.

I'm behind in my blogging. I'll have to do a bit of retrospective posting.

Keep well everyone.
