Thank you Fennel for directing me to this brilliant thread on Mumsnet. I was in need of cheering up and this wonderful story from MrsPaddyGrant made me laugh out loud. --

"When I was about 11/12 and just gone to a proper shop to get measured for my first bra - my mum was telling gran of how much it cost and how expensive it was. My gran said "why don't you knit her one". Sure that would have provided lots of support - and not made me an object of ridicule in a 70s comp confused"

I was glad to find it because it shows that not all young Mums complain about the older generation

Mine told me to live with someone before I married him because "You don't buy clothes until you're tried them on, do you dear? - And don't ever tell your mother I told you this, please!!!" (She was my father's mother and she was awesome)

Just wondering if this is my DD talking about my MIL grin

Brilliant! I seem to had had quite a few of them aimed at me in my youth!

Oh my goodness, the ones laughing at nans talking about their glory holes. I had no idea there was another meaning! blush
