in memory of auntie Pauline
I dedicate this entry to the memory of auntie Pauline, died June 2009; I think she was 85. Pauline was my mother's (much) younger sister and was a teenager when I was born. She nurtured me as a child and gave me meals and love when I got older.
I had hoped to see her this summer - as it is I shall attend her funeral next week in Bury St Edmunds. This explains why I am going directly to Shotley and then Ipswich (only an hour from Bury). I will see my cousins and my uncle John - my mother's youngest brother.
I do not have a picture of her with me - but the mascot to my boat is a teddy she gave to my son 30 years ago - so I put it on the blog in memory.
