Heritage, it's all in the genes

Well, I'm not one to boast but you can take your Elles, your Noamis, your Megans and your Hawkins, I have the best of them all.

The youngest granddaughter at sixteen. A mixture of wonder and horror, she has a learner's permit, that's the horror part. She wants to study drama, her first option but she has options all the way down to working at Woolworths if everything else fails. Of course, she intends to work her way to the top of Woolworths. I took her shopping, what a dream. She turned down the 50% off at the $200 shop in favour of the Salvo's across the road where she stunned in a black cleavage busting, 3 tiered beaded chiffon. A bargain at $12 with another little check number that was so tight, I insisted she sit down and breath in it before I'd buy it. A visit to the great grandmother at the home topped off with a visit to her facebook page and her 1000 photographs.



The eldest dressed for the school formal. The dress was a little more pinkish than this blue but she filled it very well. She also did a kind thing, asked a boy to take her that the other girls laughed at, of course it might have helped that he was no danger to her current boyfriend but a nice gesture anyway.



My two best gems, beyond price.

They will have every reason to remember Nanna Coppertop well.

There's usually a good reason why the other girls are laughing...

Watch it MiLord, he looked an awful lot like you.

Thank you anonymous granddaughter but I found another cafe with an awesome iced coffee today so we'll make a date for lunch. And there's another great op-shop in Cheltenham.

A filthy habit, Robbert. Another Americanism we can do without.

River,they come with brains as well
so a winning combo.

Andrew, you will miss out, now that they know where I hang out, no more nekkid guys.

Annie O, Sarah intends to drive down to Melbourne next year so I'll have to make sure she doesn't intersect with crazy 88 year old driver.

Jayne, terrible to brag so much but aren't they GORGEOUS?

Calvin Klein might argue .. heh.

Yes well they're nice looking but you're their fortune, good-natured soft-hearted woman you are, Jahteh.

Helen said...

What beautiful girls - and I'm enjoying hanging out with mine, too, as we've both had some days off at the same time. Imagine we were once that young.

Of course they get it all from you - the apple did not fall far from the tree and they could always dye their hair ginger - you must be so happy with them...young to be a grandmother if i do say so.
