I was going to do a post on the best way to cook a roast spud in a bonfire but that all seems a bit irrelevant, not to say irreverent, as my Uncle Alan passed away about half an hour ago.
He had been in ill health after a series of heart attacks and strokes, and had been in a nursing home for the last several months.
He was a nuggety little Aussie bloke, a bit cheeky, an ex- navy man
AND [ thanks to that naval service ] a beautiful knitter. I remember many years ago seeing an unfinished lacy baby layette of great intricacy that he had made. I wonder if my aunt still has it at the back of the linen press ? I hope so.
anyway he had a very long life, it was well lived and he leaves a lot of people behind with good memories ... can't ask for more than that
Normal posting WILL resume soon.
