Kids Tie the Funniest Tie Knots!
WE’VE been in knots of laughter reading your tittersome anecdotes about youngsters’ woeful attempts to tie ties. Keep sending ‘em in! MY 6-YEAR-OLD grandson insisted on tying his own tie for my husband’s funeral last week. He made a real pig’s ear of it. I’ve never laughed so much in all my life, and it brightened up what was otherwise a rather sombre day.

MY 6-YEAR-OLD grandson stood in front of the mirror the other day, concentrating hard on tying his tie for my husband’s funeral. When he’d finished, he’d made a perfect job… except for one thing. He’d tied it round the mirror!

“LOOK GRANNY,” my 6-year-old grandson announced last week while going through a suitcase of his late granddad’s things. “This tie’s got yoghurt on it.” I had to laugh, as my husband was a notorious bisexual who went cottaging in the dunes at Blyth every night after his tea, so it was probably dried spunk.
