This is my granduncle Terry making his own bootleg Boots pharmacy appointment card, because they had run out 😂 I love this so much. He is one of my favourite relatives - 77 years old, way fitter and healthier than me, cooks up a storm, has endless hilarious stories and swears dirtier than a sailor.
He has done so many things in his lifetime - radio, TV, journalism, advertising. He has been editor at Wine & Dine, published several cookbooks, and happily informed me just yesterday that he is an excellent seamstress. He is also very humble.
He has a garden that he built himself, filled with many different types of flowers, as well as apples, pears and grapes. This time, he made a pie from the apples and pears from his garden.
I love visiting him in Northampton, where he lives with his partner. Always well-fed, served with plenty of laughter.
