The best present I ever ever ever got was a toy farm made for me by my Pa

Phone cameras are so good nowadays aren't they?  Most of the pics I post on here are taken on my iphone.

Only my ex MIL could get it so wrong - a pair of bright blue ribbed petite tights ........ for me!!!  No way, not in any circumstances could I ever have been described as petite   And as for the thought of my sturdy limbs in bright blue ribbed fabric   .................!!!  


I've a suspicion she may have won them in a raffle and kept them in her Christmas cupboard for someone she needed a present for ................ bless
