The Mother in Law
This weekend, we're at the home of my mother in law in Somerset and I am pleased to say that this lovely lady does not live up to her stereotype. She's kind, generous and comes equal first in the world's best pastry and pudding chef with Mama Lovelygrey, my own mum. Friday night's chicken and ham pie and fruit crumble were definitely to die for! Perhaps this problem with family relationships is more of a male thing?
One old necklace posed a moral dilemma. How do I recycle coral, a material that I'm so uncomfortable with that I've entered into a pact with Red Melanie to stop her using it? There's often no concrete answer in a grey world but I think I've come up with a solution that won't cause sleepless nights. I'm going to mend the piece with a lovely silver clasp and then donate it to a Heart Foundation shop as this charity is one that I know Nana Lovelygrey supports.
