    ..my nan has always been a trifle on the odd side - creative but amateur in what she does - I think that if she had been born nowadays she could have made it as a designer or something.

    Anyway I took the baby around to see her the other day and of course all the stories about her children (my mum & auntie) come out. She was saying that when my mum was a baby (she's now early 50s!) she slept on her knees with her bum in the air so it would get cold. My nan sewed 2 blankets together, put a zip up the middle and made arm holes - and basically made my mum a grobag!!!

    She should have patented her idea shouldn't she!!! :D I could have been an heiress to a fortune! :rotfl:

    Your nan is a bloody genius!

    My nan used to get the hairs off her legs by running matches up and down them. I still remember the smell lol

    Do you think theres an invention there somewhere? :think:
