A TRIBUTE TO AUNTY NOLLY
Noel suggests a festive time of year, a time of happiness, giving and time for family. All sounds just
like Aunty Nolly.
Why Aunty? He always used to make a fuss of me not like a mum more like an Aunty!
At Christmas he used to get very excited and had every last detail planned including dinner, visiting
friends and family down to actual times almost a military operation. I used to visit Noel before
Christmas, something I have been doing for the last 25 years and I have to say his tree was second to
none, the attention to detail was astonishing. He used to look at me and say the only thing missing
was the fairy on top, with his hand on his hip like the preverbal teapot he would let out his
outrageous raucous laugh. On Boxing Day it was off to the sales for a bargain, always clothes, and
Aunty worked for my Company a couple of times and he had this gift of making me so angry one
minute and then laugh the next. A few funny stories:1. We were working at a school and the protocol had to be adhered to very strictly apart from
Aunty. He got friendly with a couple next door and borrowed her flowery dress and started
dancing around the playground. I had one of those “beam me up Scotty moments”.
2. This actually happened on quite a few occasions working in a domestic situation. At the end
of the day Aunty would start clearing up and cleaning and I mean cleaning, “Spring Cleaning”
everything, the hoover, dusters, polish, feather duster (that’s another story). The lady of the
house would plead with Aunty to stop as it was cleaner then before we started and she
could not maintain this level of domesticity for hubby.
3. After one of Aunties operations we put him on light duties and one of those duties was to
clean our house at weekends, “TO WHICH” (this was a Noelism) Aunty had a tea shirt printed
with HOUSE BITCH on, only Aunty.
4. Driving back from Stansted on the M11 Aunty produced the furniture polish and started
dusting the dashboard and windscreen whilst The Other Bob was driving at 70mph!
Aunty was an extrovert whose cup was always half full and never half empty and who treated
adversity with contempt. In those famous words “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster,
and treat those two imposters just the same”-you’ll be a Man, my son! He certainly was that. Our
conversations either post or pre operation or treatment Aunty showed great courage and belief. This
will be my greatness memory of a very brave Man!
A proud and devoted Father to Anthony, they shared a very special relationship as best friends. I
would always enquire as to Anthony and Auntie’s eyes would light up and he would grow in stature
and talk with great pride and affection. They shared some very special times together and I know
Aunty will always be there for his best friend.
Over the last few weeks I have had time to remember Aunty and the very special times I shared with
him, however this is also hinged with great sadness that these times were so few.
I should imagine Aunty is up in heaven now with the cleaning kit out preparing for the spring clean.
He certainly was a “CUT” above the rest.
I will miss Aunty dearly.
