...is not available from ourselves, but we highly recommend it, you can obtain a copy direct from Brenda's daughter - Sue Ellery, who wrote the text below. Contact details - right hand column.
Brenda's father, Angus Ellery, began the family tradition
of writing doggerel, witty, silly odes in birthday cards and
for special events, and Brenda continued the custom all her life,
inspiring my son and me to do likewise. We had long been threatening
to compile them into a book, especially as others appeared, narratives,
jokes, character sketches and as Brenda's final illness was preventing
her from undertaking the task, I, as her daughter, took it up.
Brenda died in March 1994 - sadly, 8 months before the book's
publication, and husband John was to die two weeks after it. John
(Hendas, to me) was thrilled with it but his untimely death so
soon after the book's release meant it was never marketed.
As well as an anthology of Brenda's writings and musings, Pantomime Stew presents reminiscences of her life and family photographs. Now is your opportunity to get a copy, together with a FREE postcard of Brenda's own pasty recipe for you to enjoy, while stocks last.
