My Nana passed away a very long time ago now. I was in year 5 when she passed away and I still remember finding out about her death. It is still one of my most painful memories.
My Nana always was and always will be one of my absolute favourite people. She was kind, funny, smart and generous. She always looked after me and made me feel like a true princess. That’s why I decided that I would write a little bit about her on my blog since I want to start sharing more about myself on here.
One of my favourite memories involving my Nana was the days that my little sisters were born. Because my mum and dad were in the hospital, I ended up staying with my Nana which wasn’t uncommon for me. I found myself staying there often as I just enjoyed being with her. My Nana had a job at the local corner shop. My favourite memory of all times is when I got to go to work with her for the day. That doesn’t sound too fun to twenty year old me but to five year old me, that was an absolute dream. I got to help stack newspapers, go into the back of the shop and I even got to help my Nana at the tills. Just writing about it now brings a huge smile to my face.
Another memory that I have is about a big plastic box that my nana had at her house. As I mentioned, my Nana worked at the corner shop which sold magazines. My Nana was able to take the toys from the magazines that didn’t sell and bring them home. So, the big plastic box was filled with toys that my Nana had brought home for my sisters and I to play with. Whenever my Nana brought out the box, my sisters and I would get so excited!
I wish that I could spend just one more day with my Nana but I know that’s not possible.
Do you have any memories with someone special that you would like to share?!
