The meanings of Making Gravy

What does the Paul Kelly song How To Make Gravy mean to you?

Cassandra Atkinson thought she knew the song well, until her parents split up. That’s when she saw the song in a different light.

The smell of home brew permeates the air. Taking a sip on the proviso that I ‘don’t tell Mum’. It tastes horrid but I always lie. Trying to remember the lyrics to belt out at the appropriate time to raise a proud smile and an affectionate pat on the head.

Rewind to Cassandra’s father’s shed in the summer of 1997.
