Out of the mouths of babes and ducklings.....

Sitting in the doctor's waiting room with my daughter, then aged about four and waiting and waiting....

I reckon all grandchildren know much more than they're letting on...

That's a priceless one!

Edward - at that age they aren't too fussed about lowering their voices are they?

Michael and Roger - so do I. That sideways glance sometimes gives them away.

Demetrius - we have to because in winter we don't run the still in the shed. The vapours are too obvious in cold air.

missred - yes they are although it's not something I'd usually notice.
