  • Oh bless her Jane, that did make me smile. :)

    It just remind me of a conversations i had with my Nan on Tuesday. I phone her every other day (she lives 100 miles away). I said to her "hows the tai chi Nan ?, I am thinking of starting that or yoga think it would be good for me, help me relax." She said "oh no dear i had to stop that dear" my reply "oh why Nan?"

    "its not for me dear, too slow dear" She responded. I couldn't stop laughing. (my Nan is 88yrs old and real lilac and lace nanny, bless her. I cheekily replied " You want try kick boxing" she replied "oh do you thing so dear" I couldn't get my reply out i was laughing so much. So if you see any kick boxing granny's its my Nan LOL

    When i was able to compose myself, I explained what kick boxing was and we had right giggle.

    Thanks for your tale made be smile, think laughter can be the best medicine.

    Have a nice lovely weekend and as pain free as possible.
