Memories of Nannan

This evening I was watching River Cottage Every Day and the topic of the programme was Breakfast. Hugh was singing the praises of oats and saying how he loved porridge.
I love porridge and it would be my breakfast of choice this probably stems from my grandmother (Nannan) She always made me porridge whenever I stayed over. However there was one morning that sticks with me and makes me giggle to this day.
Nannan and I were chatting while she was getting the porridge ready. Once it was ready, she got out the two bowls and sprinkled sugar on the bottom of them. So chatting away she started to pour the porridge into the bowls – however it was only after she had finished pouring into the first bowl that we realised it had all been poured into the sugar bowl!!!
I know that it’s not that funny and you probably had to be there but it still makes me smile – we had such great times and I still miss her. Some day soon I’ll tell you about walking on the beach – nothing funny just a happy memory.



As I type I'm 40 odd yrs. Sometimes very odd :) I'm married and have 2 cats - Oscar & Daisy. I love to cook, craft, read & watch TV This is to be the place that makes me smile.
