Today is April 25th, Anzac day. It is always on this day that I reflect and remember my Gran, Audrey's great grandmother, who she missed out on meeting by a matter of months. We had hoped to attend a dawn service in memory of her but the last few weeks have been extremely busy with little sleep and we have all been feeling a little under the weather. Instead we had a slow family day, Luke's cousin and her partner came over for lunch with news they are expecting! We exchanged stories of the first trimester and the first scan, I shared my memories of the months ahead and they left with a mountain of baby supplies under their arm. The afternoon was spent tending to the latest edition on our quest for sustainable living, the new garden bed with Autumn/Winter veggies.
A simple family day was just what we all needed and it gave me time to sit with my cup of tea and remember one of the strongest women I have ever had the pleasure to share my life with, my Gran.
