    My personal memory was of Aunty Gert seemingly as a very old woman. Whenever Mum and we visited as children she was always rocking in her kitchen with her back to the front door. I would always get a smack of a sort, because her arms were never covered and her sagging arms were just too enticing for me not to shake and wobble her biceps and tricepts with a giggle. I did this on every visit. She would never talk to me afterwards, but never scolded me that i recall.
