I sat with my Granny and moaned about this and that, constant housework, homework, school run (which takes a minimum of three hours each day) lack of funds, how much I missed having freedom, how it was hard to find the time to bring my creative notions to fruition, how I couldn't possibly maintain three instruments to a high level....I said that things were generally getting on top of me and in trying to do too many things at once I was doing nothing particularly well. I ranted and moaned for about three minutes. When I finished she looked at me with her beautiful chirpy little face and said 'Yes, it must be hard, I know how it is, I miss being able to walk'
Oh yes....she uses few words but she uses them very well.
Then we watched this together and she said 'well done darling' and we hugged.
Our house in the North is cosy and my mother's attention to detail ensures the perfect balance between clutter and order. My granny and I sat opposite each other in front of the open fire, her multifunctional zimmer frame sat to the side and was being used as a table.
