E & F went to DLM. Ethel & I cut the back lawn with the rotary mower.
E and Ethel both refer to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin. F refers to her friend and former neighbour, Florrie Booth, who was visiting from Kirkby, see Chapter 106.
DLM refers to Drayton Ladies’ Meeting which was based at Drayton Methodist Church, see Chapter 107.
Grandma and grandad had large lawns at both the front and back of their house. These needed cutting frequently, see Chapter 109.
