Ethel went twice to DMC. S R & fam came for tea. Sheila cut the front lawn, first time this year, some of the grass was 5″ to 6″.
Ethel refers to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin.
DMC refers to Drayton Methodist Church (see Chapter 107).
S R & fam stands for Sheila (Drew – my mother), Royle (Drew – my father) and family (Patricia, Roger, Alan and Elizabeth). It was our practice to go to grandma and grandad’s on a Sunday afternoon for tea (see Chapter 106).
Grandma and grandad had large lawns at the front and back of their house which often required cutting (see Chapter 109).
