I also found my old baby doll, Sarah-Jane, in my Mum’s loft.


My Grandma bought her for me when I was a baby.  When I was little, I desperately wanted to have a hyphenated name so called her Sarah-Jane.  My Grandma also made that cape for me when I was a baby – I don’t think it fitted me for all that long but it has been put to good use for Sarah-Jane.

Grandma died of leukaemia when I was three.  I think she was ill for quite a long time but my parents only knew for the last year of her life.

I’ve washed the dolly’s clothes and, while still a bit faded and yellow, they are now at least clean.  I’ve also given Sarah-Jane a wash.  She’s not that pretty but I was fond of her.  I wonder whether my daughter will like her?
