Reviewing conversations from yesterday; introductions and filing of new boxes in the loft; waiting, waiting and waiting for my mum; checking on the function of the new web page I drop my laptop!

Begin again. After solving any technical issues caused due to me dropping the laptop, I go back to waiting for Mum. Mum arrives, I introduce her to the loft. Mum explains who the figures are in the two old photographs: Arthur and Mabel Heines, my Mum’s Mother’s adoptive parents. Mum collects old photo albums from downstairs and goes through family connections – who people are, where they lived, what they did for a job, expressing similarities between my two parents families. She also offers links to the tailors dummy (Diana) and the photographs I found of Grandad Elliot tucked away in her box.
