Tuesday 10 January 2012: Childhood Memory

Well I did have a better nights sleep last night but still woke from time to time. I still feel shattered! 'My boy' has had a better day too.

I nearly didn't do the challenge today as I'm feeling tired, but got thinking on the way home about it, so here it is.....

My nan was the Deputy Manager at Wimbush cake shop when I was little. Myself & my sister used to go shopping with my mum into Tamworth on a Saturday & I used to always have an egg & cress sandwich on brown bread & a packet of Golden Wonder Prawn Cocktail crisps. My nan used to stay with us on a Saturday night, so she'd get the 110 bus to our house & bring lots of the unsold cakes with her as well as a little toy from the local market. My favourite was a Belgium Bun!
We used to play my nan up whilst my mum & dad went out on a Saturday night, but she'd always say we were good!
My nan died when Anya was 6 months old. My last memory of her was her feeding Anya some stewed fruit & cuddling her. She was the first person we showed my engagement ring to when we'd collected it from the jewellery quarter. She was a great nan & I miss her loads :'(
