‘Have you seen this photo of my granddaughter’s dog?
That’s how she and her hubby met! She was walking her dog, the little rascal ran off and it wouldn’t come back. This lad was running through the park and somehow he grabbed the dog. And now they are married. Isn’t it just wonderful?’

My Story

Our little Wonder !

1. Were you a soft or strict parent?

You should ask my children 😂😂 I don’t think I was strict but they might have a different opinion!!!

2. What advice would you give to a new parent?

You have to make it up as you go along, at least that’s what my husband and I did. All the books in the world won’t prepare you for being a parent. Good luck 😀😀

3. What was your proudest moment as a parent?

To be honest, there were so many. I am proud of all my children.

4. What is one thing your children have taught you?

I was amazed by my daughter’s kindness. I liked to think I was kind but when my daughter was a child I was sometimes humbled by her kindness to others. That makes me proud as well.

Our Story

When Mum entered a Nursing Home she was instantly popular with her carers and neighbours. She had the warmest, most joyous smile and she was always singing. But in truth she was singing the blues away and her family didn’t feel great either.
When we visited she was happy. We might recall stories from her past or show her photos of her family and without fail they brought a smile to her face. But though Teresa was well liked no one knew her stories like we did. No one knew that she was 1 of 9 children and for many years had slept 3 to 1 bed. Or that she loved a scone with her cup of tea. Or that after her marriage she had left her home country and lived in England for over 30 years. They DID know that her favourite hymn was ‘How Great Thou Art’!
It was those visits to see Mum that inspired the creation of Trunk2Tale. Mum had Alzheimer’s but if we could tell her story when she couldn’t, her carers would not only see her smile, they would hear her voice and know what we knew. Trunk2Tale was born. It was too late for Mum but we hope you and yours can enjoy it in the way she would want.
