My Cousin Janet says:
"Mum was very pleased to read your letter too and sends her love. She says that wishes she was nearer to you and how much she admires your spirit. She herself has a lot of ‘spirit’ – and is – as she puts it- struggling on. She walks painstakingly with two sticks and still lives on her own. She still does church activities and washes up for fund raising coffee mornings, goes to meetings etc. She is just beginning to have problem with her short term memory which is extremely frustrating for her. She will put things down and then not remember where they are and spend an age looking for things. However – although she was hard hit when Auntie Betty died – feeling that she is the last of all her immediate family and brothers and sisters in law - she has recovered her equilibrium and is looking forward to visits from various family members this summer.
At the moment we have Christopher’s* son staying. He has been backpacking with a tour group in Russia and will be joined here by Uncle Tony on Thursday. On Sunday they are off to Poland where Uncle T. had paid for Andrew to do a Polish course for three weeks. A Polish niece of Uncle T.s is not far from us studying English at an English university. They are going to meet up on Friday and visit Auntie Betty’s grave. Her ashes are interred with Jeremy in Wallington. Yesterday Andrew nipped off to Dublin for a couple of days. He got a cheap flight and I think wants to feel independent! I am doing his washing (!) He got ripped off with money in Russia and got his pocket picked in London – but is still holding tight onto his passport, tickets and credit cards. To my amusement he is daily in contact with his parents. Times change with present day communication."
