Just out of interest, Banks is known locally as Bonks. Don't know why, but that is what it seems to have always been known as. Probably a dialect/accent thing. My OH still refers to it as "on Bonks", as does his mother.

Were the people who lived there bonkers? (as opposed to Nutters?)

No vodka - just getting being daft out of my system before my grandchild arrives. I don't mind embarrrasing my children, after all they did it to me often enough. But this is different.

Not a secret from today. Now it's other gran's back from holiday and she knows, I can tell anyone and everyone I like. I promise to become very boring on the subject.

I've been a boring grannie for the last 11 years, it's super, much better than being a Mum, it's like being a Mum but without all the hard work and responsibility, you have lots more time and far more patience. Enjoy. :)

Stephanie.
