    “Hellllooo” you would say as we walked through the door,  Liked you’d been waiting all day to see us and the day couldn’t bring anymore.   Hot chocolate, hot vimto, chucky egg butts,  Sleep overs, choc ices and rolling dumplings up.   WhatsApp messages that took you an age to write, your “ring me back” voicemails and being on the phone all night.   Dog walking, dog sitting and a Clevelys run out, Fish and chips on the way home  Never too old for a clout 😉   Rocking around the clock,  Putting your lippy on Bingo was calling  Sad times when George was gone.   Afternoon teas, shopping days out, telling old stories and mooching about.   My Nan for 20 years and my counsellor for nearly 20 more,  “Follow your dreams Kelly, bang on the door.”   Your side smile really did light up up a room,  Your humour, your wit, no time for gloom.   Surrounded by love till the very end, we will miss you so much, my Nana, my friend.   Love Kelly xxx  💜
