Uncle And Aunt

A Memory of Budby

Uncle worked as a cabinet maker for Thoresby Estate. He and aunty lived in a tied-cottage in the village which Lady Manvers visited occasionally. I met her twice in my lifetime. Aunty baked lovely cakes and made chair covers and clothes all on a small hand sewing machine. There was an Aga in the kitchen making it so cosy and warm, with always something baking or cooking. They were very happy times but sadly came to an end with first uncle's passing, shortly followed by aunty.
