Mum, I want to know about
Grandad. Can you tell me stories?
Of course I can. Your Grandad loved children, and your big cousins always had a great time with him.
He was a big man, with a round baldy head, a big belly and skinny legs. But his heart was the biggest of allâ€Ś
His glasses were magic magic, they Looked normal, but In the sun, they turned dark â€Ś
He was very clever, and was always inventing useful gadgets for the houseâ€Ś
He was a very good cook and liked putting curry powder on everything. He was the master of the barbeque!
You could always rely in Grandad, he would never let you downâ€Ś
He liked to watch cartoons with the children, and he used to cry at sad moviesâ€Ś
He was a very good man, and is now the angel that looks after youâ€Ś
I have his photograph here, do you want to take a look?
