E&D went to Norwich, shopping. I cut & cleaned the edges of the front lawn, weather fine & sunny at times.
E refers to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin.
D refers to Dorothy Rose, who I knew as Auntie Dolly. She was grandma’s first cousin and lived in Bedford. She visited grandma and grandad about three times each year, see Chapter 106.
Grandma quite often went shopping in Norwich, see Chapter 108.
Grandma and grandad had large lawns at the front and back of their house which required a lot of maintenance including mowing. Grandad was quite particular about these including keeping the edges trimmed, see Chapter 109.
