Recently, we received two surprises within a couple of days. The first was a call from my nephew telling me to look forward to becoming a Great Aunt in October. The next day, we received a telephone call from our son, Sam, to say that he and Sandy had booked their wedding at the end of August.
It was good to receive some good news for a change.
When my granddaughters came round for breakfast the next day, we obviously started talking about the wedding and what we might all wear.
Amber, being a bit of a tom boy, said that she wanted to wear a suit and wouldn't wear a dress at any cost.
Millie wasn't sure what she wanted to wear and said she'd have to think about it.
I announced that I would soon be out looking for a suitable dress. Hearing that, Amber replied, "Oh, its far too early, Gran, you might get a sudden growth spurt by then."
I had a good laugh because the only growth spurt I might get is in width, not in height. Lets hope that doesn't happen. I will have to watch my chocolate consumption from now on.
