'nono bess'

If we ask Lilah 'who's the best', she'll look around all four of us and with a twinkle in her eye she'll make her choice, knowing full well that the three who weren't nominated will all exclaim in disgust, 'nooo, I'm the best'! Haha, she loves that game! My Mum, or should I say 'Nono' because that is what she is called around our house now, made us the most fabulous steak dinner tonight. I am definitely vouching for Nono next time we play that game! She always has been and always will be the best cook I know! Here she is, in her glory, with an antique patchwork quilt. Making quilts is one of her favourite hobbies and she is 'Nono bess' as Lilah says it, at that too! We even found a quilting/material store in Picton and she actually talked me into buying something to make, me, me that can't even sew a hem. Oh dear! I should also say the little high chair next to Mum was made by our B&B host (Mick) for his children when they were young, isn't it fabulous?

  1. I think Nono and my mom would get along great! I love how the simplest little made-up games can make a child happy.
