secret life of granny

I was casting around the web to find more information about my Granny. I was surprised to find this page from the Sunday Times in 2005 – scroll to the bottom of that link and you’ll find this:

“It’s refreshing even after one sip, but I prefer the one I buy commercially.”
Muriel Hope, 91, tastes Scotland’s most expensive pot of tea, costing £23.80 at Plaisir du Chocolat in Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.

I can’t really imagine her in a place called Plaisir du Chocolat, paying that much for some tea, or speaking about doing anything commercially, but I think that the age would match up, so I guess it really was her.

    We were talking about this here on thr day of the funeral. She was taken there by Fiona Hope, younger daughter of Charles and Elizabeth Hope. Like you I can’t really imagine her in such a place either, let alone pay £23 + for a pot of tea! BUT there you go!!
