Saturday 26 May 1973

E & D went to Norwich, brought a lb of weedkiller from Boots £1.90. I pulled up the weeds from the roses in the front.


E refers to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin.

D refers to Dorothy Rose, my grandfather’s first cousin, who I knew as Auntie Folly. She lived in Bedford and often came to visit my grandparents, see Chapter 106. She always came by bus.

For details of grandma and grandad’s roses, see Chapter 109.
