Do you ever do something and immediately after think “well why didn’t I do this sooner”?
Today I met for coffee with a friend that I’ve not seen for 5 whole years and really I can’t think why we hadn’t met up sooner. I guess life just works like that sometimes. I am so very glad that we went for coffee today and I am going not going to leave it so long next time.

I’ve been looking after my boyfriends 97 year old grandma while his parents are away on holiday. She is so lovely to me and makes me miss my own grandparents so much, she also uses really cute phrases like “Oh darling!” and “Crikey O’Riley”, old people are so cool! She has had such an interesting life, she used to work for 20th Century Fox (known then as Fox Film Corporation) and volunteered for the Wrens during the second world war where she worked as a Royal Navy cinema operator. I searched her name on Google and their is a 7 year old Daily Mail article interviewing her about her time as a Wren which she had no idea existed!
Were your grandparents alive during the war?
