Unplanned return to England

Had to come back to England suddenly because my dear old Nan died on the 3rd of this month. Joyce Millicent Inns (nee Tarrant) was 86. She played a large and very positive part in my upbringing, and I am forever grateful to her for that. Miss you Nan.

She was taken ill a few weeks before her passing, and the earliest I could sort out flying back from Thailand was, as it sadly turned out, 3 days too late. Sorry Nan.

I no longer have any surviving grandparents. It feels very weird. All my life I have had grandparents, including great-grandparents when I was very young, and they imparted much valuable wisdom to me with their knowledge of so many "old ways" (and usually totally correct ways) of doing things.

Priceless treasured memories.
