My father-in-law (more accurately, my ex-father-in-law) worked as a civil engineer in public service after the Second World War in the UK. When he passed in 2002, I 'inherited' a number of his storage boxes.
I am blessed that he is still in the same town as me - for now. It means I can see him regularly.
I started this post like I do every time. I copied in the prompts. I start writing my thoughts under each one. I paused when I read the third one. To be honest, I was not sure it was something I was interested in answering. How on earth would I know the names of people who were alive over 100 years ago? We are not the kind of family that have passed down family stories from generation to generation, so these are not things that I know.
My sister Julie is also an accomplished watercolour artist. On a hot, sticky summer’s day late last December, we sat down together with a cup of tea and we chatted about her art.
