No.no. Mum told us both at the same time that she wanted Suzie to have those things. We have no problems remembering it at this end, I'm afraid. I shall keep digging.

plus the paper stuff. do you remember sizie's horrified look when she asked about the paper n neither knew anything about anuything \bout it even tho mum had done her usual t6hing about it "being in writing.". i used tio hear her mentio9ining this on the phone records n said to her i could take her to maria to add an borthographic coda to her will - plus the jewelry additio9ns she'd dictate for the high end stuff but it mever got done . i never heard anything about any painting stuff. i dont think anything was in writing, despite what she told suzie down the line. the first i heard was from suzie herself aftermum was gone. i can tre thr church n mary gulland route but i cant see them knowing. i never saw any reference in any of the will to suzie's pzper, or the jewels, or art materials. i never heard mum even refer to them except to lend it for a gulland art show. i should have taken more interest in the hobbies but it was in same slo6t as the gardening. the house was full of stuff that was never explained. i'll cc suzie to speed things up.
Chris, That is of course what should have happened and I was pretty sad and very embarrassed when I asked Suzie whether she had used the easel yet to discover that she never got it nor did she get Mum's painting materials, both of which were promised to her. She knew and we both knew that Mum wanted her to have these rings. So, we'll have to track it down as it has obviously been stolen.
