olive and harry were my grandparents...

harry worked in an ice cream factory so was always very very popular with all the kids in the street..
he also grew bumper crops of fruit and veg which was never as popular as the ice cream... 
olive cared for others, she made sure all around her were well fed, loved and adored..
she taught me to knit, sew and bake eccles cakes
they are both gone now, but i like to think that they are still together dancing and kissing like they used to do in the back kitchen...
all that i am i owe to them
everyday i miss them
olive and harry inspire me ..

and me?
just bumbling through the days hoping that nice things outweigh the horrid..
