I would like to say farewell to my great aunt Mary who passed away yesterday afternoon.
Known as Aunty Mary she and my great uncle Basil (who passed away 14 years ago) lived on the South Coast. My favourite childhood memories of travels down the coast always included a visit to see them. Uncle Basil would give my sister and I a few dollars out of the coin jar and Aunty Mary would have a table full of baked goods for us like lamingtons and carrot cake. Their garden was always a wonderful place packed full of veggies and flowers. I remember as a small child feeling that they both were incredibly old as only a small child’s perspective can see people older than their parents.
The shop will be closed for one day this coming week so we can say goodbye to Aunty.
Day to be advised.
The store will be closed on Tuesday the 20th December.
