BL Tonged it yesterday morning but had to spend the rest of the evening on Saturday with it looking ridiculous. It scored with my grandkids, though - finding me virtually naked (not quite!) and with a mad hairdo confirmed their opinion that I am wildly eccentric and therefore the right sort of grandma. They told me last night that there is a book called 'Gangster Granny' and that I fit the bill exactly!
'But not your other granny?' I asked innocently, wanting to hear the comparison with my son's MIL.
'Oh no! SHE wouldn't make much of a gangster!' they replied.
I'm not entirely sure why I should be gratified by being a better gangster than their other granny, but I felt a glow of gratification. She may be richer, more beautiful, posher and more cultured, but I'd make a better gangster!
