Granny Flats…

My granny lived in a block of flats
three storey’s high,
I can picture it right now
and I don’t even need to try.

Frangipanis in my hand
teddy in the other,
Slowly up the many stairs
walking with my mother.

I’m staying with my granny
time that I now miss the most,
Her flat with many windows
overlooking the city to the coast.

I would hug her tight and breathe her in
and smell that granny smell,
There’s nothing that replaces it
a tear rolls, it’s just as well.

Hand in hand through the park
and down to Darby Street,
Past our favorite bench
where we would sit and rest our feet.

Talking to the grocer
memories of a time now past,
When bread was bread and milk was milk
and fruit and veg would last.

Heading back with bags now full
much slower than before,
Spending time together
always meant so much more.

Now days grow old as we do
and noon turns into night,
Till there is no city below us
just a sea of starry light.

Teddy in hand and snuggled down
between blanket and blue sheets,
The soft warmth of comfort
puts me straight to sleep.

My granny lived in a block of flats
Three storey’s high,
She would see me from her window
as wave to me goodbye.

Granny Flats cushion...


I still need to test this pattern out...With Kate...
So it might be a little while before it is out...
In the mean time...
Grab a cuppa tea and a few biscuits...
Nab that comfy chair...
and enjoy the veiw with me...

The Granny poem was THE best.

My dear Granny died before I was old enough to really remember her, but I remember the lovely things in her house. It is funny what sticks in our minds.

I love you styling, it's so....stylish! The new cushion is absolutely lovely, I presume that the small one in the shop is made by you as well? Loved that one too, so eagerly waiting for the pattern! Your granny poem is so touching, I'm so blessed to still have my 91 year old granny to hug every once in a while. Even though I'm 41 by now, I fear the day she'll be gone.... Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I love internet, we can just hop over to the other end of the world and visit one another! Until the nex time, X Floortje

Also love the poem - I can relate to missing one's grandma.

Great photos, too. Just a great post today. :)
