I have got heat lumps all over my body. I keep scratching the heat lumps. Mammy took me on the tram to the skin and lock with the heat lumps. I have got a box of tablets and kaller mine lotion to put on the heat lumps.

Great Granma

   I love to go to see Granma and Grandad and Fred and the other old grannie who is Daddy’s Granma. There is a green cloth with tassles on the table and a green cloth with tassles on the mantelpiece. There is a mirror over the mantelpiece and a mirror on the wall. When I look through one mirror I can see the other one and it goes on for ever.
