My Mother’s last scent…

9 Feb

My Mother's last scent...I salvaged this Crabtree & Evelyn oily body spray from my dear departed Mother’s things, and am enchanted…Today I ordered a room spray from CRABTREE & EVELYN’s web site, free postage for Saint Valentine’s Day…the day I was Christened in Glasgow Cathedral 1960.
My dear sister bought me their Evelyn Rose hand & body cream and it is intoxicating…

Baby McPhee, Was that you?

7 Feb

Baby McPhee, is that you?

I remember her standing in our hall at Oak Bank…her hair middle parted and twisted behind; Tartan shawl with new born babe enclosed snugly warm.
She was Mrs McPhee of Scottish Tinker stock, a regular visitor with Black Tent beyond Fort Road  Kilcreggan and always came to see my mother.
Oh to hear from Mr McPhee of Glasgow, now in his 50’s, who wrote a Blog and a wonderful poem about his dear departed mother…was that She & He?

One of my earliest memories as a child. Said Mr McPhee is blind now, so perhaps I will never hear back from my little request on his blog…I am intrigued.
