My other memory of her was of her riding on the back of her husbands motorbike in a long black leather coat with a fitted riding hat. When it was her 80th birthday she insisted we take her to a motorbike exhibition. She couldn't quite get her leg over the seat to sit on one but made us all help her! How we laughed!"
When my Mother died 2 years ago she was going to be cremated so I insisted that she was wrapped in the quilt I made her. It felt like the right thing to do."

Susie in 1947
The dress was 5 guineas,her mother was shocked at the price,
She was taken to see Glen Miller but didn't get any Nylons,
She had a coat made from a blackmarket submarine blanket,
She was allowed to go bare legged in court,
Was careful with her shoe as getting them mended was a nightmare,
her lace up shoe were tied up with string.
