Evening all, and the usual good wishes!
Mr P and I have been reflecting. (Bit of background, second marriage, been together since 2001.)
However we both had Welsh grandmothers, who were an important part in our lives.
We both remember them having the "front room" home to the china cabinet, the 3 piece suite, the anniversary clock, ,a no go zone, only used when the Welsh relatives came to visit.
How I remember those visits! Aunt Clarice would say "You know her next door? Well...." and after that it would all be in Welsh!
However, it was also used as a depository for Christmas goodies!
Matchmakers, boxes of Turkish Delight, Twiglets (when they used to be long!) Newberry Fruits, those orange and lemon slices that no one ever seemed to eat.
As children, we would peep through the door only to be told " don't touch that, it's for Christmadr! "
By Boxing Day Afternoon, it was a case of "Isn't anyone going to eat any of this?"
So, Gran thing, or a Welsh Gran thing?
PS Note for anyone concerned, this post is not intended to be sexist, ageist or racist in any way whatsoever.
