I only met my Great Aunt Dorrie 4 or 5 times when I was in my early teens.
She had lived in India and had led a pretty privileged life until her husband died and she returned to the UK. She came to stay with us a few times and did expect to be waited upon and served food at set times, which would annoy my mother who felt she was being treated as a servant.
However My Great Aunt and myself were kindred spirits we laughed at the same things and I remember her with great affection.
Recently I came across my second cousin who was the GS of my Great Aunt. I had hoped for lots of interesting exchanges between us about his Gran but he really isn't interested. There was no spark between us.
I would just love to sit down with her tonight with a nice glass of something and have a good reminisce and fall about in fits of laughter, what a lady she was !!!
