“And when she suggests you come with her and your granddaughter on a trip to the nearest big city one hundred miles away, your first reaction is that you can’t do it. All that traipsing around … You must have been about 80 at the time, Mum.”

“It’s very cold outside and you look at your curtains, thinking – “life is passing me by and I can’t stand them any longer”.

You must remember us going to the seaside. When you were little you would run around in your knickers and vest. We had a photo of you … holding up a fist full of wet sand, looking all pleased. I thought you were going to eat it.

2017-janvideo

Is that your cartoon?  “Yes, Mum.”  About time too … Is anybody going to watch it, though?
