biggrin.gif wub.gif It is a wonderfull thing is our sense of smell. My mum worked in a restraunt called the Lyric in sauchiehall st & the best part of my day as a little girl was when she returned to collect me from the upstairs neighbour.
I adored the smell as I pressed into my mammys hugs & greetings. the smell was of cakes ,buns no doubt general foods on her uniform, to me she was always smelling like a bakery at that point in my long day away from her.....................oftentimes enjoy passing a bakery to remind me of my mammy, as I was a long way away from her when I migrated here, that helped.
another one is the perfume counter,mum always wore Georgio when she was out special with my Dad,such a distinctive fragrance(yellow striped box,think by ?Beverlyhills). Thankyou for giving this space to remember those sweet memories of my close need for my mammy, it was most endearing for me..

Hi Crawfurd,
Are you still in London?
I am living in Ayr and enjoying being retired.
Love to hear from you.
Jim
