Nanny and Bampy meant everything to me. I miss them desperately. We would speak daily on the phone, I'd share many of my thoughts or worries with them and I always dreaded the day we would lose them. I saw them most days while growing up and they both played a hugely important role in my life.
He was a wonderful cook. He iced and marzipaned our Christmas cake every year, I remember baking rock cakes with him all the time and he always cooked the main meal of the day.
He was an absolute legend and I ache at the thought he can't see his great grandchildren any more.
Therefore I would like to dedicate today's blog post to him, in loving memory of one of the greatest men I ever knew.
|Cuddling me, I was just days old|
|Christmas was his favourite time of time. |
He started playing carols in June. I am serious...
|Nan and Bamps took me on holiday to Sweden when I was six. |
To this day it is one of the most memorable holidays I've ever had.
|We stayed in a log cabin in the middle of nowhere surrounded by pine forests. |
I remember feeling like Heidi! I'd love to return to Sweden.
|Celebrating the Princess's christening|
|Bamps was so proud of the Prince|
Happy Birthday Bamps.
