My grand daughter came here earlier after her day up in London with her mum. She was so excited to tell me what they had got up to. I knew about their trip to the theatre to see Mama mia although she was not aware about it. So she came rushing into my study to tell me she had been on a train to London and ..... They went in the M&M shop. I said how lovely and then what did you do? She said we have got a surprise for you. I asked her what else she had seen in London.....we went to the M&M shop Grandad. Did you not do anything else? Yes we have something downstairs for you. Did you not see a show? Yes we saw Mama Mia. She was more excited to tell me about the M&M shop. We went down stairs and she was so excited to give me a packet of M&Ms. Once she had got that out of the way she then told me about Mama mia. She had apparently sung along to all the songs! Then she started singing Mama Mia. I told her I know one of the songs. 'In the loo' la la la la la la 'in the loo'. She said no grandad you have got it wrong yet again it is WATERLOO! I keep telling you but you never listen to me! It tickles me as children are so innocent when they are this age! My daughter just sat there shaking yer head at me!!!

I am sure she will. It seems she will remember me as being a fruit loop!

@garymarsh6 As long as they remember us that is what counts.

It always made me laugh how, after we'd taken the kids on an exciting school trip they wrote a report about who they sat next to on the bus or what they had for lunch didn't you know M&Ms are important!

I think I pushed her too hard last night she got exasperated with me and told me off and told me she did not like me! Thankfully an hour later she had forgotten and told me that she loved me and I was the best grandad in the whole wide world!
