Small talk

YOURS (UK) - - Your Letters -

My six-year-old grand­son was hav­ing an eye test. While read­ing the let­ter chart the op­ti­cian asked him if he liked let­ters. He replied that he pre­ferred cab­bage to let­tuce. Per­haps a hear­ing text next...?

I love this pic­ture, right, of my great­grand­son Lach­lan Webb taken when he went to visit his two un­cles, serv­ing mem­bers at the RNLI Mude­ford sta­tion in Christchurch, Dorset. He was on hol­i­day here from Aus­tralia. Jean Can­non, Dorset My ten-year-old grand­daugh­ter El­lie was ex­per­i­ment­ing with colour­ings on ic­ing to go on buns we’d made. She added a drop of black to her white ic­ing and re­marked, “Nan­nie, it has come out grey, just the same colour as your hair!” Never had it called ‘ic­ing colour’ be­fore! Julie Stone, Ip­swich
