Such an amazing Mother's Day
gift -- at 36 I've become a grandma,
a nana, a grandmother or G-Ma.
It has caused me to reflect on the
special women in my life -- first
and foremost my beautiful Mum
and my grandmothers and great
I was lucky to get to know my two
Both resilient characters and very
different women. Both strong in
I used to read to Nana Lila and
listen to her stories from years
For my 12th birthday she sent me
a card with some cash to buy
myself a rigger!
She'd had a hard life -- their home
in Clyde used to have a dirt floor.
Fortunately I spent lots of time
with both of my grandmothers.
I was proud that Granny Anne
was the prettiest grandmother out
of all of the other grandmas at
Brownies -- her earrings matched
her necklace and she had a very
cool hair do. Very important
things to an eight-year-old.
She taught me about uncon-
ditional love and kindness. She
helped me with my homework
and had a gift for words.
My Nana Scott is also a wonderful
lady. We spent hours cleaning out
turkey feeders and picking up
Despite her hard work on the
farm Nana always had baking in
the tins, clever knitting projects
on the go and a meal for anyone
who happened to be around.
She is amazing.
Both women encouraged me to
work hard and succeed at
whatever I chose to succeed in.
It is now my turn to love and
support our grandson - Harrison
I'm not flash at the baking and
cooking aspects but like my
grandmothers, I choose to suc-
cessfully love, inspire and support
him to achieve whatever he
wishes to achieve in his lifetime.
It sounds simple, doesn't it?

Cromwell man Andrew Camp-
bell is bringing a little bit of
America to Cromwell.
He has set up his own roadside
business -- Andy's American
Style -- selling American hot-
dogs complete with cheese,
onions, chilli, mustard and the
all important frankfurter.
The idea has been in the
pipeline for the past six years
after a Nelson friend of his who
used to be in the business
convinced him to buy a wagon
similar to an authentic New
York hotdog cart.
Mr Campbell finally took the
plunge and gave up his mobile
engineering supplies business
to sell hotdogs.
And so far, it's been going pretty
He has been to a few local events
where his hotdogs have proved
a hit and has just started selling
them from his wagon on
McNulty Rd from Tuesday to
''It's something different. I'm
not aware of them being
available anywhere else in
Cromwell. As far as I know, I'm
the only person in the South
Island selling them from the
side of the road.''
And after doing lots of research
-- ''I'm a bit obsessive about
things'' -- and trying out hotdogs
at different places around the
country, he has learnt a few
tricks. For example, it's vitally
important the bun is warm
before placing the frankfurter in
it, otherwise the frankfurter
will get cold and no-one wants
''That's how the authentic
American hotdog is made. It's
not just a sausage wrapped in a
bit of bread.''
